Johnny Depp directs new music video, "L'incendie," for Vanessa Paradis

Johnny Depp has once again stepped behind the camera to direct–this time, it is a three-minute music video for his longtime love Vanessa Paradis. The song, called “L’Incendie” (“The Fire”), is the third single released from Vanessa’s CD “Divine Idylle,” which has topped the music charts in France and Belgium. Vanessa Paradis won Best French Female Artist and “Divine Idylle” won Best Pop Album at the recent Victories De La Musique awards, the French equivalent of the Grammys.

In the “L’incendie” video, Vanessa Paradis, wearing a flowing peach dress, dances and sings on the stage of an ornate, empty theater . . . a solo performance for a mysterious man in the shadows whose face is never shown. However, the man’s posture and attitude, not to mention his hat, is very reminiscent of Johnny Depp. As Vanessa sings, the microphone stand bursts into flames and the stage floor ignites with her every step. At the end of the video, she walks up to the man in the hat and, in a bright explosion of fire, the pair disappear.

“L’incendie” is the third music video Johnny has directed for Vanessa; their other collaborations are “Pourtant” and “Que fait la vie?” from her previous album “Bliss.”
