Dior Homme – The Film featuring Robert Pattinson

Three things will be on my mind all day today: Robert Pattinson, Camille Rowe, and DIOR.

Robert Pattinson and French model Camille Rowe in the Dior Homme Fragrance Film

If you haven’t already heard, Robert Pattinson of the Twilight Saga is the new face of Dior Homme.

The official fragrance short film was released this weekend, and I don’t think I’ll be able to peel my eyes away from it for a while.

I think I’ve watched it about seven times in the past half hour alone. It’s just that amazing.

The black and white short film lasts just over a minute. Meaning if you keep watching it over and over again, this won’t be taking up too much of your time…

Right?

WRONG.

Dior leaves a link at the bottom corner of the video, leading viewers to the 1:46 uncensored directors cut.

Still think its not too much time?

Think again. You’re going to be tempted to click a new link on this directors cut, taking you to a behind the scenes video, and after that the link to the interview with Mr. Pattinson about the Dior Homme fragrance.

I’m not complaining. This is a lovely piece of work that director Romain Gavras has decided to share with the world.

I love the elegant sophistication of the romance in this short fragrance film commercial. It’s very raw, very real, and very impulsive. From the moment Pattinson walks into that dressing room with all those burlesque dancers, you can feel the sexual tension between he and Camille Rowe.

My favorite parts of the official film are the scene where Pattinson and Rowe are kissing under water and the scene where he chases her from a rooftop as she runs on street level.

In the directors cut, I realize that there was supposed to be an adorable little dance scene between Pattinson and Rowe in a French restaurant. I love the way Camille Rowe acts like a child, taking bites of food from strangers’ plates and eating it as she runs to the dance floor with Rob.

The music for this commercial happens to be “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin.

The part where he sings “I’m gonna send you back to schoolin’,” pretty much took this whole sexy French rendezvous to a new level. Brilliant song choice.

The interview with Robert Pattinson was particularly interesting to me.

And no, not only because his British accent is deteriorating (how sad though!), but because he actually had quite the intriguing commentary.

Rob mentions director Romain Gavras’ violent style, and how working with him is a pleasant change of scene from the acting gigs he’s known for.

I love this comment in particular:

“The Dior Homme man is someone who is just a little bit wild. […] He does whatever he wants. He’s a bit of a free spirit, not really scared of anything. He can kind of be whoever he wants to be at anytime.”

I don’t know, ladies and gentleman. What do we think of the Dior Homme man?

Enjoy Garvas’ creation in all its tension and sophistication, and be sure to watch the interview with the new face of Dior Homme.
