Before midnight, LIBERATO published five new videos that make up a mini-series entitled “Capri Rendez-Vous” directed by Francesco Lettieri who tells the love story between the young Carmine and the French actress Marie.
The visuals are set in the splendid setting of Capri and along five different eras: we start from the 60s to arrive at an ending – that is not too happy – set in our days.
The images of the videos, as always, are linked to the texts and melodies of Liberato, but here they stand out from the streetwear and urban aesthetics of the Neapolitan neighborhoods to go in a direction more oriented towards auteur cinema: there are no more the boys who wander around on scooters in Mergellina or the colorful black community of “Gaiola Portafortuna”, but two black and white videos that remind us of the French cinema of François Truffaut and Jean -Luc Godard.
More generally, these visuals wanted to pay tribute to great directors (the Italians Dino Risi, Federico Fellini, Nanni Moretti are also mentioned) showing us a completely different world, inevitably more sophisticated.
The work of the whole dream team 9 Maggio is sublime (from the costumes, to the sets, to the photography) so much that the new songs takes second place to videos because, in my opinion, they’re not up to the cinematographic operation.
However, it must be acknowledged that those videos would not be the same without the music of LIBERATO and his lyrics, sometimes even in sharp contrast to the visuals, but always perfect.
In any case LIBERATO and his videos make us go crazy: we can get enough of anything concerning him because he gives us a pleasant, unprecedented, and unique euphoria.
Listen to his debut album and enjoy the 30 best frames of the five new videos.
