Ordet/Tot Torna a Començar

Take a look at Catalan band Mishima's video for "Tot Torna a Començar" ("Everything Begins Again"), which is a frame-by-frame reconstruction of the last scene of Carl Theodore Dreyer's Ordet (1955).  Well, almost—let's just say it's more-than-loosely-based on the last scene of Ordet. (SPOILER ALERT: the music video makes much of the very, very end of Dreyer's film).

Very Nice. Ve-ry Nice. Love the song, love the lyrics, love the video. Love the ponytail death-girl at the right of the coffin.
