Default Rosie Mercado in ''Longing''

Here's something interesting. Curvy model Rosie Mercado recently shot with Michael Anthony Hermogeno (famous for his many exciting collaborations with Kelsey Olson, and his work for Torrid, SWAK, etc.). However, the shoot didn't merely involve print images, but an actual short film.

Here's the video. Watch it before reading further (spoilers below).

It's always a pleasure to see plus-size models doing film work in addition to stills. Michael Anthony's video work is as proficient as his photography, and the narrative is compellingly told -- without a single word of dialogue. How interesting the see such muted colours (almost black and white, but not quite).

The film creates a moody atmosphere, then takes a turn at the end. That ending is intriguing, because it leads to multiple interpretations. Has the "John" of the letter been unfaithful, and Rosie is now serenely over the betrayal and can go on with her life, with no regrets? Or does the video confirm the old adage, "Women secretly love jerks"? The possibility of multiple interpretations gives the film an extra touch of interest...

Beautiful film. But how could anything featuring Rosie not be? Only thing I had to do was mute it - the music loop got a little distracting as soon as I figured out she wasn't going to speak. It IS a little intriguing, as she basically smiles at the memories and then files him under "jerk".

To hold a solo scene like this for over 3 minutes, the beautiful miss Mercado is on her way to establishing herself as a bona fide actress!
