Rosapark and Thalys Celebrate The City Brussels with Scenic New Film
After taking you on a journey through the cities of Thalysland with #SoundsoftheCity and #ScentsoftheCity, the European train company and its agency Rosapark, are inviting you to join us for a new experience, a human experience.
For over 20 years, Thalys has transported millions of travelers with the aim of fostering human exchanges across its network in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
While in recent years, Brussels’s cultural effervescence – gastronomic, artistic and architectural creativity – has gained more and more international recognition, Thalys wanted to celebrate another one of the city’s most valuable treasures, those that make the city’s heart beat.
Grab a seat on this European train, bound for a city rich in culture, art and architecture.. and people:
“Bruxelles by Thalys” is a poetic presentation of the city and its monuments – its residents, like Rudy, the antiques dealer, Fernand, who’s watched the city evolve over decades, and Alex, a fixture in the urban nightlife. Thalys also invited a special guest along for the ride – one of the city’s more well-known residents, singer Angèle.
The 22 year-old Belgian singer gained international favor with her first three hit singles, “La Loi de Murphy”, “Je Veux tes Yeux”, and “La Thune”, which have accumulated over 20M YouTube views. Three hits and 420,000 Instagram followers, all before the release of her first album, Brol, which comes out October 5. A proud Belgian, Angèle closes the film with the declaration: “in Brussels, the real monuments are its people”.
The film will air in Parisian cinemas and online starting September 19th, and on digital and social media starting October 1st in the rest of France, the Netherlands, and Germany.
