IT HAS BEEN OUT THERE FOR A WHILE, BUT IT DOES NOT MAKE IT ANY LESS BEAUTIFUL: THE SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO DU ER NÆR (=YOU ARE CLOSE) FROM THE NORWEGIAN SINGER AND ACTOR GUNNHILD SUNDLI.
The opening sequence of the sky, seagulls and the city of Oslo creates a kind of poetic realism that remains throughout the video. The low-key song provides calmness and the lyrics do the same. It is all filled with safety, honesty, faithfulness and love. Gunnhild has the exceptional ability to sing and perform in such a way that overcomes what might have been perceived as clichés if done bye other artists. With a voice clear as a bell and a genuine honesty of every word she is singing, it is simply lovely. The images from Fantefilm live their own life in a way, as they tell fragmented stories in black and white and colour about skating boys, old, suspicious ladies, about a man and a dog and about sweet Gunnhild. However the song and the images are brought together in a soothing paste - almost like they are dancing. Directed by Sara Gabriella Rønneberg and produced by Audun Lynghol Wittenberg. Post produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus: Edited by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Mathias Theissen.
