There is something about Wes Anderson films that exude a whimsical vibe and a well-rounded idea. Known for his foolproof cinematic formula, he creates a holiday film for H&M aptly titled “Come Together.”
The film follows Wes’s recurring on-screen talent Adrien Brody set in a moving train whose schedule has been interrupted due to snowy weather. Colored in pastel tones, Wes breathes a refreshing shade to the holiday hues with patterns strategically placed to create the perfect symmetry. Wes is also noted for his tracking shots effortlessly creating movement and energy. The easy left and right panning of his camera builds verve despite the sad plot. He carefully seeds these techniques in the H&M campaign while tackling a different concept of family.
Clad in H&M’s holiday collection for men, women, and kids, the characters in the short film fit in Wes’ periodic Christmas motion picture in chic and wearable elegance, the perfect balance between sprucing up for the festivities and getting comfy with loved ones.
