children playing the parts of adults

Tough girl leaves prison - goes home to lonely flat - dreams of paradise - sets out to find old boyfriend. Steals car, drives up north - finds him with new partner and baby. Reflects on life and find new love and paradise .............

Thought it was haunting:)

I love the video, but I agree with Nikola on the fact that it's too dark: to me it doesn't fit with the...spirit, the atmosphere of the album, which is more colorful

Oh, and at the end, I'm sorry but it reminded me of something...


CAR KIDS! :awesome:


hihihi :D

Could've been a lot better. As it is, its kind of a weak, directionless sigur ros imitation. The plot is too vague to sympathize with, as I had absolutely no idea what the cars were supposed to symbolize, nor what the point of the purpose of the knife, the shady guy etc. was.

Plus, why were there adults at all? if they were going for the whole kids thing. Altogether kind of meh.

This absolutely my thing. Great script, lovely acting by the little girl and beautifully filmed.


Man, I'm gonna watch that again.


Wanted to see this video, since I heard of it and happily glad they decided to let us view it. Beautifully filmed and good acting all around. Pretty unique because you don't see the little girl as little most of the time. Reminds me of Benjamin Button. Don't want to spoil it, so won't say more. Will say the ending is precious and paralells with the Happy Elephants vid. I find both intriguing and brillant.

The video is the second to be made for the track Paradise (the first, by Mat Whitecross, came out three months ago when the single was first released). Shynola's version is a gritty live action tale, suggesting something of a new style for the directing collective, who have previously specialised in animation. There are moments of animation here still, but the promo's strength lies in some excellent performances by the young actors who star in it, particularly the central character, played by Lily-May Crosby.
