On a movie set, a guy in a space alien mask waits for his big scene to start shooting - and AB/CD/CD begin to blur the parameters of movie-reality, in their stylish video for French artist DeLaurentis.

The video for A Big Part Of A Big Sun plays with the viewer's perceptions in a very alluring way, where at first you're watching some kind of low-budget sci-fi movie being made - very satisfying in itself – but then in a rather surreal twist, the making of the movie becomes the movie itself. And then, arguably, it becomes the making of the movie again.

The simple, powerfully visual elements involved here - the movie set, the eyes behind the alien face, the young girl with the chrome-silver gun - end up delivering a sad poignancy that works beautifully with DeLaurentis's haunting alt-pop.
