You Go to My Head (2017)
Written by: Callum Chiplin
Belgian Director Dimitri de Clercq’s first Romance, Drama, Fantasy, and Mystery feature film You Go To My Head.
It encompasses a beautiful bohemian flair comprised of only two main characters, four members of crew, and a unreal Moroccan backdrop.
This intriguing and peculiar romance results in an array of striking scenes and an overall vibrant and aesthetic work of art thanks to the impeccably seductive cinematography of Stijn Grupping, solidified by an equally emotive score by Hacène Larbi.
The two complement each other’s work so fluidly that they combine to create a visual and audible masterclass. However, if both were not of the same potency then the coupling would be noticeably lack-lustre, like driving a Ferrari without being able to hear the engine.
Grupping’s visual skills are merely the skeleton for the substance created by Larbi’s eerie and fluctuating musical creations. These sounds range from a disjointed and rapidly plucked violin, ghostly wailing, and a cacophony of woodwind instruments, to a sitar, carol singers, flutes, insects, and other mysterious noises which signify and emphasize the subtext of a scene when something is clearly very wrong. The film is melodramatically framed right from the beginning.
