David Knight - 26th Sept 2014

Filip Nilsson takes us to Mumbai for the John De Sohn video for You Only Love Me, to tell a Karate Kid-type tale revolving around the traditional Indian sport of Mallakhamb.

Essentially that's gymnastics performed around a single wooden pole. And at the climax of this story of an old man mentor training his talented new acolyte, there are some astounding gravity-defying, gymnastic feats. Sensational.
