  • Comments: This my fourth AMV, and my best so for.
    I used the song "What it is to burn", by the band Finch, whom lyrics fits perfectely with the character of Tima in Metropolis. I wanted to do an analogy between the lyrics that are about a girl who is "the only one who knows what it is to burn" and Tima, who is literally "burning" in the movie.
    On the top of that, this is a romance video, which deals with the relation between Tima and Kenishi, a relation that can't exist in Metropolis with all the obstacles that it contains : Tima's father Red Duke, Rock...
    This video also shows the immensity of the city of Metropolis, with its huge buildings, its robots... all that make the bigness of the city.

    I had to shorten the song so that I could find adapted sequences to each moment of the lyrics, which I wasn't certain to do with the entire song.

    Here are the lyrics :

    She burns

    I feel diseased
    Is there no sympathy, for the sun
    The sky's still fire
    But I am safe in here, from the world outside

    So tell me
    What's the price to pay for glory

    Like a bad star, I'm falling faster down to her
    She's the only one who knows, what it is to burn

    Today is fine, and she burns
    Today is fine, and she burns
    She burns

    Like a bad star, I'm falling faster down to her
    She's the only one who knows, what it is to burn


    Hope you'll enjoy, and if you could give an op, that would be perfect :)
