FYI Music points us in the direction of “Libertine,” a 24-minute (!!!) epic by Quebec-born Mylene Farmer. And it’s much more than a music video. It’s something that Stanley Kubrick might have dreamed up. There are elaborate period costumes. Battles. Sweeping cinematography. Full-frontal nudity. Sex. A cast of…well, a lot.
This mini-drama was shot in in France and cost about $300,000 to make. Watch and be amazed. (And yes, it’s kinda NSFW. But if you’re caught, explain that this is art.)
