Twin teenage sisters from a village in Burgundy perform “Total Eclipse of The Heart” by Bonnie Tyler. The idea of outer space represented by the term “eclipse” in the song title is echoed by the starry backdrop and the fact that twins are to be found in the constellation of Gemini, all of which is in contrast to the inner emotional space of the heart and the intimate complicity the twins represent.
