Interstella 5555 2003


Billed as an ‘animated house musical’, this extended pop video for Daft Punk uses Battle of the Planets-style drawings as a background to the French band’s music. With tracks from their Discovery album instead of dialogue, the narrative concerns an alien four-piece band kidnapped by a music executive for material gain. Directed by Kazuhisa Takenouchi, Interstella is music industry indulgence, but commendably to the point at 70 minutes and offering a delicious retro accompaniment to the music of one of dance’s most perennially popular acts.
