We have no doubt that you have already seen the wonderful works of Wes Anderson in his superbly crafted, kooky film worlds. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Moonrise Kingdom. The Royal Tenenbaums. And more specifically, The Darjeeling Limited.
This year, H&M partnered up with Anderson to create a characteristic Christmas ad starring Adrien Brody. Come Together is The Darjeeling Limited but sweeter, shorter and set in somewhere slightly chillier than India.
The one thing Anderson does well are his seamless transitions from location to location. Moving around his uniquely crafted sets fluidly and in one perfect shot, Come Together doesn’t disappoint. A single shot of the empty corridor which grows mysteriously dark as the train goes into a tunnel and lightens as it comes out again.
It’s a great little Christmas ad, and it certainly whets our appetite for Andersons 2018 movie.
