David Knight - 18th July 2019

In Hervé Humbert's video for Chuck Wonderland, the mystery of two lovers' obsession with each other unfolds like a dream.

At the sun-parched setting of a lake, past and present collide, and even under a midsummer sun, Humbert's film for Free Like A Bird has the atmosphere of a ghost story, with a mood of desolation reminiscent of Alejandro Amenábar's classic The Others.

Hugo Becker and Zita D'Hauteville are excellent as the attractive couple with a smouldering chemistry, sliding towards their doom.
