Is this the most dramatic advert from a banking firm ever? We certainly think so.
Set in the English countryside, the commercial, from Credit Suisse, is modelled on Ovid's Metamorphosis.
But what has that got to do with banking, you may ask? Well, the purpose of the video is draw attention to the 'Metamorphosis: Titan 2012' exhibition at the National Gallery in London (July 11 - September 23, 2012). Credit Suisse is a partner.
The exhibition is inspired by three of the Titan's paintings, which depict Ovid's classic poem. The video's beautiful cinematography and composition perfectly conveys the poem's themes, as Anna Freil and Ed Speleers play goddesses Diana and Actaeon from the painting by Titan.
The beautiful clip by Euro RSCG features better acting that most Hollywood directed movies, and was produced with the aim to show Credit Suisse's close relationship with the National Gallery.
The idea of metamorphosis is relevant thanks to popular movies such as Twilight.
The film, which shows Acteaon turning into a stag and being chased by his own hounds, launched just two days ago and has already racked up 39,566 views.
