BOUHA KAZMI has directed ‘Satisfaction’ from Zayn’s sophomore album Icarus Falls.
Touching upon elements of spirituality that we feel and don’t voice, the richly cinematic narrative expresses the mercurial beauty of a relationship set against the backdrop of an ongoing war. Underscored by Zayn’s lyrics about struggle and finding fulfilment, Kazmi depicts a metaphysical journey depicting love, loss and rebirth. The film takes a surrealist turn at the end as it captures the transcendental power of love, whilst bringing home the tragedy of war.
Zayn Malik runs afoul of an underworld boss by mixing his crime business with the pleasure of romancing the boss' girlfriend. Things come to a head in an epic fight sequence that puts the damsel in distress, but don't worry: She's able to take care of herself.
In which ZAYN raises his hand as the next big massive action star? That's the role he takes on with ease in this massive caper tale, directed by Marc Webb — The Amazing Spider-Man and "Helena" and way more — starring Girls actress Jemima Kirke, and boasting a hook by Sia.
The hot and heavy scenes between former 1D singer Zayn and rumored girlfriend Gig Hadid will get the headlines (and the screenshots), but it's the trippy/sexy vfx play that really makes the video memorable.
