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 and starring, a delightful, Adrien Brody.
It's set on a train—a favorite stage for Anderson—at the holidays, but a snowstorm 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 sweet, unaccompanied minor in particular. The film is shot in classic 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.
"This story may resonate more than ever at a time in the world where we could all do with giving a stranger a hug," Brody said.
