Madonna + influences/symbolism:
↳ The Power of Good-bye | Chess scene

The music video for “The Power of Good-Bye” was directed by Matthew Rolston, and was filmed at Silvertop House in Los Angeles, California and Malibu Beach. In the aquatic green-themed video, Madonna says goodbye to her lover (played by Goran Višnjić).

The chess scene and subsequent kissing scene were inspired by the 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair. In the film, the couple (played by Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway) play a game of chess and silently flirt with each other resulting in a kiss.

Madonna’s video follows the same formula but its intent is opposite. In this instance, the chess game will decide the future of the couple, but Madonna decides to stop playing, leaving the relationship. Madonna’s lover attempts to rescue the relationship for one last time by passionately kissing Madonna who momentarily reciprocates. The heartbreak is too unbearable for Madonna and she later walks towards the ocean to her death.
