the darkest truth about love

“You are irredeemably alone”

Two illustrators from the UK, Hannah Jacobs and Lara Lee created a poetic short animated clip about love. Yet, they don’t depict the usual magic of being in love - on the contrary, it’s quite a depressive vision of emotions. On screen, the violent statements are delicately balanced with the animation’s naivety and a candid soundtrack. 

The short movie called “The Darkest Truth About Love” is based on Alain de Botton’s philosophy, taken from his book “Essays in Love” which sold more than two million copies.
