Cinema's Most Iconic Romance Scenes Are Recreated in This Charming Music Video
"Anyone who's been in love can relate with the words, 'I wanna run away with you.' It's one of the most grand, romantic statements you can make. It's also one of the most cliché."
So begins Caitlin Smith's director's statement accompanying the new music video for Brick + Mortar's latest single, Train. The video pays homage to (and pokes fun at) this idea through a series of shot-for-shot reenactments of some of cinema's most iconic romantic moments. We're talking about everything from Annie Hall to Blue Valentine, from The Graduate to American Beauty.
Take a look, and prepare to be charmed:
