Paul McCartney is an absolute genius, as if we didn’t know. Not only did he write the beautiful song, “My Valentine”, he also directed the hauntingly beautiful video featuring acting stars Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman. Shot simply in black and white with nothing but the actors expression, or lack thereof, and the beautiful fluidity of “signing” the words. Stunning, striking and soul stirring.
My Valentine is one of two original compositions on his new standards album Kisses on the Bottom.
Liverpool’s favorite son shot three different versions of the video one with Johnny Depp, one with Natalie Portman and the version we feature here with both actors.
