Very cool video coming from my adoptive town, Barcelona, by the directors collective Canada. Crème Caramel is a fresh and sensitive short film that Nowness included in their #DefineBeauty weekly series, about the female beauty.

Crème Caramel

Inspired by the color palette of Wes Anderson, this short film is beautifully made. Its main character is male desire, depicted by a lucky crème caramel that can’t help but admiring all the tiny details that make it go mad with lust. How she puts her panties into place, the back of her neck, her lips, the sudden feel of her skin…

We often forget that desire resides in the tiniest things and that we get aroused by details invisible to other humans’ eyes. I really like how sensitive this short film is, how without a glimpse of explicit content, they manage to make us feel all soft in the inside – and hard on the outside! In both mainstream cinema and porn, I feel that what we remember, what provokes an emotion, is not the massive explosion or the money shot, but a deep silence, a look, a moan, a spontaneous caress…

Canada also brought us the deliciously weird music video for Scissor Sisters’ Invisible Light.
