A Halloween Love Story

This is a weekend of things that go boo in the dark, so here's a little bit of boo (which turns into a love story between a skeleton and a beautiful maiden). They meet—or have they already met? – in a famous bookstore in Paris.

This comes from filmmaker Spike Jonze and designer Olympia Le-Tan. It's called Mourir Aupres de toi, or To Die By Your Side.

Many beautiful books and one very famous whale make cameo appearances.

Warning: There's explicitly sexual behavior at the very end, during the credits, but because everybody is dead, there are no x-rated body parts. Still, imaginative youngsters might want to leave when the story ends.

Have a happy, and not-too-scary Halloween.
