It’s just like “The Darjeeling Limited,” but with H&M clothing.
Wes Anderson, everyone’s favorite purveyor of precious cult films, tried his hand at commercials again for H&M’s new holiday campaign. Let’s just say this video is more classic Anderson than a Margot Tenenbaum Halloween costume.
“Come Together” is equipped with many an Anderson film staple ― a gathering of supplies, a train, a cute little kid and, naturally, Adrien Brody. The short film centers on a group of solo passengers aboard a train that experiences an absurdly long delay on Christmas.
The passengers, all wearing what the brand calls the “relaxed, wearable elegance” of H&M’s holiday collection, come together for a holiday celebration that Brody and his crew magically whip up in a mere (time-lapsed) 19 minutes.
It’s charming and fun and, as Brody himself said in a press release, pretty timely. “This story may resonate more than ever at a time in the world where we could all do with giving a stranger a hug,” he said.
