Meaning and Background
"It's about when you've gotten through a really bad relationship and you finally dust yourself off and go on that first date after a horrible breakup, and the vulnerability that goes along with all that."- Taylor about Begin Again
The music video was released on October 1, 2012. It is directed by Philip Andelman. Taylor's love interest is played by Vladimir Perrin.
The video takes place in Paris. It starts out with Taylor standing on a bridge, gazing over the Seine. She walks along the river. In between, there are shots of Taylor riding a bike, sitting on a rooftop, trying on clothes in a store, sitting at the park and talking to a man. In a café, Taylor is busy writing on a notebook when the man notices her and comes up to her. He sits at her table and introduces himself. He takes pictures of her and they have a fun conversation. At the end of the video, they're seen walking together and smiling at each other.
