"It's funny that you find life so complicated." Today's indie trailer is for a film called Chinese Puzzle, or Casse-tête chinois in French, another third film in a charming romantic comedy trilogy about a couple and their lives over the years.

Watch: Trailer For Romantic Comedy 'Chinese Puzzle' Starring Romain Duris & Audrey Tautou

7 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Already megawatt stars in France, Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris have seen their star shine across international borders too. And together they make a pretty attractive package. While they most recently teamed for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo," the duo are perhaps best known for their ensemble dramedies with director Cédric Klapisch, "Pot Luck" and "Russian Dolls." And they've once again teamed with the filmmaker for another tale in the saga started in those movies. "Chinese Puzzle" brings together a cast that also includes Kelly Reilly, Cecile De France, Sandrine Holt and more, for the story of a 40-year-old father of two, who splits from his wife who moves with the kids to New York City. He follows along to be closer to his children, but in order to stay in the country, he becomes the father of a child to two lesbians, marries a Chinese woman and also winds »

Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' Co-Starring Omar Sy & Aissa Maiga To Screen At Chicago Critics Film Festival In May

5 March 2014 2:50 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Mood indigo.. Mood Indigo… you’re saying to yourself. Where have I heard about that film before?Well it was way back in Jan 2013 when Tambay first wrote about Michel Gondry's visually fanciful romance movie, which was scheduled to open here last year. However, the film which co-stars Omar Sy (The Intouchables, X Men Days of Future Past) and Aissa Magia, along with Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou, and which deals with a “wealthy couple that endure hardship when she falls ill with the strange ailment of "water lily in the lung," never saw the light of day here.But if you’re in the Chicago area, and more than curious to finally see the film, which was nominated for three Cesar »

Gff 2014: Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ is ambitious, unrestrained and utterly transportive

27 February 2014 2:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mood Indigo

Directed by Michel Gondry

Written by Michel Gondry and Luc Bossi

France/Belgium, 2013

Adapted from Boris Vian’s cult novel, commonly translated as Froth on the Daydream, Michel Gondry’s latest film is a riotous, whimsical journey with a lot more to say than initially meets the eye. The opening sequence threatens to drown you in a cavalcade of offbeat animation and special effects, including a stop motion eel, an insect-like doorbell, a TV chef who passes ingredients through the screen and a miniature man dressed up like a mouse. Gondry’s indulgence throws down the gauntlet right away – either you’re in or you’re out. Mood Indigo can be bewildering, exasperating, infuriating, but, then again, it can be utterly transportive.

It stars Romain Duris as Colin, a wealthy bachelor who lives in a luxurious Parisian apartment with his cook/lawyer/intellectual guide Nicolas (Omar Sy). He »

Audrey Tautou – Poetry in Motion

20 January 2014 5:11 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – She bursts into the room, apologizes for being late (she hardly is), asks for a coffee.

Some actors are bigger than you expect: Think Tim Robbins, a gentle giant. Many are smaller (Mel Gibson). Audrey Tautou is just mega-slender, mignon, as the French have it: Pert nose, pert hair, eyes as dark as almonds.

She has an effect on men. Tautou has agreed to work the international press at a UniFrance Rendez-vous junket in one of Paris’ most-lap-of-luxury Grand Boulevards hotels. For the group interview, a rough half-dozen journalists sit slumped in a ragged campfire circle of chairs. Some wear dufflecoats, others jerseys that might be better used for a cold day’s gardening. Even in jeans and a blue jean shirt, Tautou still exudes a touch of Audrey Hepburn chic effortlessly.

One senior British journalist has cunningly managed to sit two chairs down from the interpreter. He zealously »

‘Chinese Puzzle,’ Duris, Forestier, Luchini, Provost Get Thumbs-up at Rendez-vous

20 January 2014 5:09 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – The 16th UniFrance Rendez-vous gathered 150 journalists from Europe and beyond to screen screeners and conduct interviews with the makers and stars of the latest crop of French films now rolling out across the world. Variety asked a clutch of them to opine – something that’s in their DNA – on which title at the junket had the best box office prospects in their territory, the best performances in a junket film, and – at time when UniFrance is tubthumping for thesps to put their backs behind the promotion of the films they star in, who was really good value in an interview. The poll is no Variety Rendez-vous Awards, but it tips its hat to some potential box office hits, in relative terms, and engaging perfs on and off the screen.

16 January 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – “Cedric Klapisch is a great director and has a real writing talent for original stories and extraordinary ability to tap into the vibes, the contemporary trends of a society,” said Olivier Courson, chairman-ceo of Studiocanal that has co-produced Klapisch’s last four movies with Bruno Levy. Still playing French cinemas, where it has grossed $13,4 million and counting, “Chinese Puzzle,” the third part of a franchise begun with “L’Auberge espagnole” and “Russian Dolls” will be talked up at this weekend’s Unifrance Rendez-vous by Audrey Tautou and Klapisch himself. “Chinese Puzzle” follows Xavier (Romain Duris, older, a touch wiser), to New York where Wendy (Kelly Reilly) has taken their two children to live with her new American flame.

13 January 2014 5:10 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been far too many years since audiences have gotten to see director Michel Gondry.s imagination make it to the screen in unfettered form, as last year.s The We and the I was centered in reality and The Green Hornet before that was not the kind of fantasy film Gondry fans want to see. Luckily, his next film Mood Indigo looks like his most visually ambitious effort yet, and U.S. audiences will soon be able to see it now that Drafthouse Films has acquired the rights.

It centers on the blossoming romance that forms between Colin (Romain Duris) and Chloé (Audrey Tautou), resulting in »

Pickups for Gondry’s Mood Indigo, Berninger’s Mistaken for Strangers and Carbone’s Hide Your Smiling Faces

In a busy Monday for acquisitions, Michel Gondry’s romance Mood Indigo, Tom Berninger’s doc on The National, Mistaken for Strangers, and Daniel Patrick Carbone’s indie favorite Hide Your Smiling Faces all found homes with theatrical distributors. Drafthouse Films snapped up Indigo, which stars Audrey Tatou and Romain Duris and has a certain Amelie vibe to it. The film premiered at Karlovy Vary last year rather than one of the big fall fests, so it’s maybe not surprising that an emerging distributor like Drafthouse has picked up the film rather than a bigger and more established outfits.
