To be honest i was surprised the blond character was female. Reminded of Griffith in terms of a feminine looking male...

Still, technically a treat to watch....just not hooked.

read the note before watching it ^^

The video wasn't whatever it is that I was expecting. Quite beautiful, love the transition. And thought I didn't understand the lyrics the music seemed to fit perfectly.
Finally complete and up-to-date:

One of my Top 5 from the BC. I love the atmosphere, but the story could be more transparent. I think it's too much driven by emotions and it could have more events. I mean the happening feels a bit flat for me: The most scenes are about love feelings between the couple and the main events are: the woman spits blood (I don't know why) and they both fight in the civil war and die.

Maybe I miss something because I don't understand the lyrics. Nevertheless your expression is awesome and many editors could learn from you a lot. Btw on the one side the song fits well to the drawing style, but on the other side it feels weird to see french people acting to an Italian song. :dino:

Thanks everyone! :3 It was the experimental work and we are happy that you liked it.

The most scenes are about love feelings between the couple and the main events are: the woman spits blood (I don't know why) and they both fight in the civil war and die.

We always create our own stories-crossovers and try to make them understandable, but this work - the exception. This AMV/MMV was created out of love for the original anime / manga "Rose of Versailles". And some scenes can be understood only by those who watched the source. However, those who have not seen the source can be found in the "figurative" sense scenes, for example: the woman spits blood - in the source she had tuberculosis; but in our AMV it could mean something is "dead": the apparition of soul of her deceased lover. Roses also have a special meaning in this clip.

Btw on the one side the song fits well to the drawing style, but on the other side it feels weird to see french people acting to an Italian song.

Friendship of the peoples: Japanese manga, French Revolution, Italian song, English text and Russian editors... :mrgreen:

Thank you for the explanation. I think I understand it now - so her lover is dead and it's something like her guardian angel in the civil war? But he did then a bad job. :D
Roses are symbol for love and beauty but I don't get the "special meaning in this clip". I don't wana watch the Anime/read the mange to understand it, I think I wouldn't be a great fan of the series. But I like this AMV - thank you for making it.
