Female Lovers Take a Thrill Ride Through Paris in The Rolling Stones ‘Living in the Heart of Love’ Video

Female Lovers Take a Thrill Ride Through Paris in The Rolling Stones ‘Living in the Heart of Love’ Video

Charles Mehling – director, photographer, and former bass guitarist of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, a rock band with a famous Rolling Stone referenced in their name – has finally gotten a chance to work with The Rolling Stones themselves.

It's also the first video to be released since the death of the band's drummer Charlie Watts last August, and it's something of a tribute to the legendary musician. 

Selected in the short film category, the video for 'Living In The Heart Of Love' – a song from the 40th anniversary rerelease of The Stones' 1981 album Tattoo You – is a wild, breathless thrill ride through Paris (a city which has always been one of the band's spiritual homes) in the company of two female lovers.

The pair – played by real life couple Nailia Harzoune and Marguerite Thiam Donnadieu – lead a louche, timelessly rock 'n roll lifestyle, partying at various swish locations in Paris with their eclectic mix of friends. The story is rendered in Charles's signature black and white look – which also allows the smooth incorporation of vintage video footage of The Stones performing in the Tattoo You era – focussing strongly on Watts behind his drum-kit. Executive producer Olivier Gauriat, of Barnstormer Productions, will also be presenting 'The Wild One,' directed by Tessa-Louis Salomé, in this year's Documentary category.

‘Living in the Heart of Love’ will be screening at the Festival on June 10th and June 15th.
