David Knight - 20th July 2017

Belgian directing duo Norman Bates make a return to music videos with this searing tale of love, compassion, and obsession for London-based Domino Gold.

The directors - that's Inti Calfat and Dirk Verhaye - have been working on their own fiction series recently and they bring their sense of dark, unpredictable drama here. A disfigured young man's obsession with a 'perfect' girl takes an unexpected turn as she welcomes his attention. But their happiness is brief before a more terrifying obsession takes hold. 

It's an ultimately devastating story, performed and directed with impressive conviction. When you play with fire, expect to get burned.
