Well it wasn't the Matrix nor the next Bollywood Movie, Princess of China is much much more. The video takes on a serious tone of epic journey and conquest mixed with love and longing. Sometimes the love you feel cannot be fulfilled.
Rihanna is obviously the Princess of China dressed magnificently between an authentic statewoman and a courtesan of the night. Either way, she turns heads wherever she walks. Chris is more drab and beaten down yet a sparkle of wisdom catches you in his journey. We are not clear what his journey is other than finding his princess.
In a spectactacular vision like only director Baz Luhrmann can do, we are transported visually in movie, in emotion and in song. The video ends as abruptly as it begins yet it leaves you longing..for more.
Perhaps that is how epic love should be.
