A Wes Anderson Christmas for H&M
Wes Anderson has created a new Christmas commercial for H&M, starring Adrien Brody. This might give us our temporary Wes Anderson fix until we get a full feature. It’s also put us in the mood for a winter train trip.
As Adweek points out, H&M has had a strong advertising run this year.
H&M has had a very strong year in its advertising, and it’s putting a festive bow on 2016 with this lovely short film for Christmas, directed by Wes Anderson (with help from London agency adam&eveDDB) and starring Adrien Brody.
It’s set on a train—a favorite environment for Anderson—at the holidays, but bad weather has delayed the trip. So Brody, who plays the conductor, and his train colleagues put on a nice Christmas surprise for the passengers, including one diminutive guest in particular.
The film is shot in typical Anderson style, including tracking shots and great attention to detail. The final scene is quite emotional, which is nice, too, amid the exquisite design.
All the actors are wearing H&M’s holiday line of clothes.
