Justice 'Love S.O.S.' by Edouard Salier
Edouard Salier's extraordinary video for Justice's Love S.O.S. marks his return to music videos, and a reunion with France's top electro-dance duo. Now working entirely in live action, this is an arresting symphony of awesome power and grace - and when it comes, unflinching violence.
Back in 2011, Salier directed the video for Justice's Civilization, exhibiting his tremendous skill as a creator of fantasy worlds: a herd of buffalo are panicked into stampede by the turning on its axis of their flat discworld, dislodging massive Greek-style statues around them. In Love S.O.S., it's as if the Greek statuary has become real, in the guise of a high-heeled-wearing heavily-scarred bodybuilder, who takes to the stage of a nightclub.
In an intriguing subversion of accepted roles, it turns out this muscleman is a poledancer, who proceeds to display his unusual skills within a glass case, viewed by a well-to-do nightclub audience.
But then comes the twist - and we find out the real reason why he's wearing those high heels. Ouch.
