A musical haiku for the weekend

Not sure about this marvel of pan-European creation. See what you think.

Minxz is a place where classical music, poetry and film find each other in harmony. A story that unfolds in unique, dazzling and mysterious scenery.

Originated on the border triangle of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, ‘Haiku’ is the second chapter by Minxz, inspired by the Japanese art form.

    I must be missing something here. As a migraine sufferer since I was a child, the flicker in the video is insupportable. The piano is horribly out of tune.
    Can anyone explain, please?

  • John Borstlap says:

    It’s a haiku commercial, i.e. a haiku to stimulate commerce, or commerce to encourage haiku during shopping hours.

    Reading bad haikus
    Really annoys me, but it’s
    Hard to avoid them.

  • Thomasina says:

    “Poetry and film find each other in harmony”…a winter season word is used for haiku(?) shown at the beginning, but this is obviously not a sight of winter in Japan.
