Burning Love ll
Jorunn Myklebust Syversen

A little boy dressed up as part eunuch, part geisha is sitting, singing and playing the accordion with his father. In some of the scenes the boy has a dog in his lap while he sings and gesticulates. The music in the video is a mixture of Norwegian folkmusic and the boy singing badly off-key with improvised texts. There is no traditional narration, there is only a musical progression. Under a seemingly humoristic surface lies a dark, psychological aesthetics that produces a touch of distaste.
