The video presents a parallelism between the images of the poem and the sequences shown. Every picture is the reporting of lines in visual language. The producer gives the idea of solitude and loneliness through the lack of colour. Black and white render the video full with sadness and the effect only in the end is turn upside down with the coloured sequence.

To tell the truth  the only space of happiness is the memory of the daffodils gives the poet a feeling of joy.


The author wants to visualize the entire poem trying to make it  it real even through the use of fiction. The use of a slow and demanding soundtrack underlines the will to participate spiritually to the situation. More over the guitard istortion  make the sensation heavier, almost overpowering. Shootings always concentrate on a specific focus  together with a panorama symbolizing the contrast single versus whole.
