It’s an age old story. Girl meets boy. We presume girl loses boy, because she goes mad in a shoe shop. Girl is taken to hospital for a CT scan, then to an art gallery, and then hospital again where she trashes a room with lots of unnecessary medical equipment in a fit of despair. Yes, it’s the video for The Hours ‘See the Light’ starring the beautiful Sienna Miller.
The video is by Hollywood director Tony Kaye, the art is by Damian Hirst, and the clich√©s by Charles Dickens.
To be fair, it’s an excellent track, and Miller is emotionally convincing, but I’m always baffled why mentally distressed women are always portrayed in their nighties.
It’s as if bed clothes and unbrushed hair are a unique sign of female psychiatric disorder.
Actually, that might be one to send to the DSM-V committee, although I suspect they’re already on the case.
