Another short time-reversal film

In a comment to my post about a short thriller film that was shown in reverse, sonofrojblake alerted me to a four minute video “Sugar Water” by the performers Cibo Matto that was directed by Michale Gondry that shows two parallel storylines, one forward and one backwards that have a dramatic crossover at the 2:00 minute mark. Fun!

    Cibo Matto are the musical artists, the video was actually directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind among other things).

    Is there an echo in here?

    I’m in awe of the mind that came up with and executed that concept -- the layers of symmetry in the images and the way they repeat and link up across the frames, the visual organisation, and the overcoming of the practical difficulties of shooting it.
