Our Song

Our Song is an experimental comedy drama about Love, Loss and Lyrics. She loves him. He loves her. They lose each other - and the whole time they only speak in song lyrics. OUR SONG contains excerpts from the lyrics of 42 songs, and visual references to these songs, bands or music videos. From the blowing curtains in Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart", and the black tears in The Rasmus' "Justify", to the iconic hand gesture of the Backstreet Boys. While the story is dramatic, the narration style and rhythm of the film produce an unexpected situation comedy. OUR SONG is the first short film that producer, writer and actress Kati Rausch filmed in the US.
