Filmmaker Martin Scorsese has launched a new commercial for Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana featuring the Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson. Shot in black and white, and inspired by the golden days of Italian cinema, the ad features “an epic story of the power of love and the power of dreams”, said Dolce & Gabbana.
It is the first time that the two faces of the men’s and women’s fragrances have been united for a Dolce & Gabbana campaign. Titled “Street of Dreams,” the two-minute 35-second clip sees the stars drive a vintage Alfa Romeo convertible through a strangely deserted New York City dawn. McConaughey’s character picks up Johansson, before the pair shoot pithy lines at each other about love and life in the spotlight, and then romance each other on a rooftop.
Stylishly shot in vintage New York, beautifully acted by two stunning stars, the short film impresses.
“Street of dreams is an epic story of the power of love and the power of dreams. This is a story of unbridled emotion. A story of Italy; of Hollywood; and of the world. Its classic cinematic style evokes both the grandeur of the golden years of Hollywood, and the passion and emotion of Europe’s greatest cinema icons. Scorsese’s campaign tells a tale of timeless glamour through its two protagonists, Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson. United for the first time in a Dolce & Gabbana Fragrance campaign, their intensity is unmistakable as they come together on the streets of New York. It is a celebration of passion, of beauty, and of being unique.”
