If you know the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, then this short film will be a treasure. It was made by Bret Easton Ellis, the novelist who wrote Less Than Zero and American Psycho. I was, frankly, never a fan of his books, but this has me floored. It’s a story told in music, images, and very, very few words:

The title of this post, by the way, is from Book 10 of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, which tells the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Sometimes is pays off to have been an English major in college.
