French producer, composer, and songwriter Petit Biscuit has teamed up with director Pierre Saba-Aris and production company PANAMÆRA for an absolutely stunning visual take on his recent single,“We Were Young (ft. JP Cooper)”. Starring Rod Paradot and Marilyn Lima, as well as Petit Biscuit himself, the music video features gorgeous cinematic shots as it tracks nostalgic dreams of longing and love, a perfect complement to the audio.
Director Pierre Saba-Aris explains the music “brought up in me a kind of nostalgia about happy memories. I wanted to transpose this into a dream- like universe, as if the man was dreaming all of these moments he had lived with this young woman. What happens in dreams definitely isn’t always real, that’s why we have these slices of life take place in timeless sets, and it’s also why the faces of the characters have this fixed, artificial look. Like a dream that would be erased second after second, the woman and the environment around her melts as the movie goes on, until they completely disappear. Petit Biscuit joins them in that dream without ever crossing their paths. As if he too was walking in the shadow of one of his own relationships.”
