Directed Last Regrets - Various - Piano One Laurent Boutonnat who also co-authored the screenplay with Farmer, the video was filmed for two days in February in a Jewish cemetery abandoned in Budapest with a budget of about 35, euros.
The train, which leads to the cemetery was turned on only for the video which features, in addition to the two singers, a deer.

Murat gets off from the tram and pushes the front gate.
He walks in the cemetery, passes a deer and meditates at a grave. When he sits, Farmer comes behind him and puts her hands on his eyes. Murat takes Farmer by the hand, then they run, laugh and huddled one against the other in the cemetery. They doze off on a tombstone, and after a last embrace, Last Regrets - Various - Piano One say goodbye to each other and split off.
The man then gets on the tram and goes away. According to the analysis made by magazine Instant-Magthe video is the "metaphor of a past and regretted love". With this video, Farmer "reached the quintessance of elegant sadness which lives in her work". According to this analysis, the character played by Murat would be alive and would try to meet that played by Farmer who would be dead. To this end, the train would represent the transition from these two worlds.
The deer who flees would be "the symbol of the woman's essence", and the bunch of thistles would evoke "the desire to provoke unconditional love with the other person".
As for the immaculate snowit would participate in the gloomy atmosphere of the video and would symbolize "a mild but deadly mask which isolates" the two opposing parties.
