This one is purely for the Nightwish fans out there. Everyone else…well, this won’t take long.
If you like this band as much as I do, you’ll probably be aware of their film project, inspired by the music on their most recent album “Imaginaerum“, which relates the death-bed fever dreams of an ageing composer whose reflections on his life are intermingled with his fantasies and his life’s creative works.
The first teaser trailer for the film is available on YouTube via Nightwish’s channel and looks about as heavily indebted to Terry Gilliam and his brand of emotional, artistic, expansive fantasy as it’s possible to be – which is a recommendation in my book. I’m getting Fellini, Gilliam, riffs, Marco‘s beard and singer Anette Olzon looking like she’s auditioning for “The Fabulous Baker Boys 2” from this trailer, which make me very intrigued to see more of this film.
I doubt that it will make a lick of sense and I wouldn’t have it any other way…
