Storyline

The "It's a Sin" video marked the experimental director's first of several collaborations with the band. It extended the lyrical themes of the song by showing Tennant under arrest by an inquisition with Lowe as his jailer and Ron Moody in the role of his judge, interspersed with brief clips of personifications of the seven deadly sins. The video was directed by Derek Jarman. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)
