DVD Review: 'Mood Indigo'

24 November 2014 1:48 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★☆☆☆☆After having his expressive wings clipped in exchange for genre formula with The Green Hornet (2011) and relinquishing his creative control to a group of Bronx school kids in his collaborative teen comedy The We and the I (2012), Michel Gondry returns to the land of the fantastical with comic drama Mood Indigo (2013). Pitting together two of contemporary French cinema’s most prominent actors – Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris, Gondry attempts to fashion a visual representation of the golden period that immediately follows falling in love, yet in abandoning rhyme or reason in his construction of such a vivid world Gondry has made something almost entirely incomprehensible.

Contest: Win Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' On Blu-Ray

12 November 2014 1:03 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

No one creates worlds quite like Michel Gondry, and his latest, "Mood Indigo," based on the book by Boris Vian, gave him plenty of material to play with. A fantastical romance, with invented pianos and vehicles, and featuring an all star cast (Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, and more), the director conjured up a story and setting like few you'll see all year. And today, we have a couple copies of the film on Blu-ray—featuring both the director's cut and extended version—for a few lucky readers. A whimsical love story set in a charmingly surreal Paris, the film follows wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his "pianocktail" (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas. When Colin learns that his best friend Chick, a fellow acolyte of the philosopher JeanSol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero »

Chinese Puzzle | Blu-Ray Review

21 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Performing slightly better at the Us box office than the 2005 film it follows in Cedric Klapisch’s trilogy, Chinese Puzzle still landed with a bit of a fizzle (especially considered to the initial response of the first film featuring this cast). Nominated only for Best Original Music at the Cesars, it ended up being a demure finale for a host of characters that have grown into rather banal adults over the past decade. Receiving a warm response from a variety of critics, this chapter is merely basking in the afterglow established by its predecessors.

Diehard fans of Klapisch’s L’Auberge espagnole (2002) and its sequel, Russian Dolls (2005) should be happy to see the director round out his Romain Duris headlining films into an actual trilogy with Chinese Puzzle. Though it potentially stands as a piece on its own, audiences may feel a bit lukewarm toward this outing without having experienced »

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet DVD Review

9 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Starring: Kyle Catlett, Helena Bonham Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, Niamh Wilson, Jakob Davies, Judy Davis

Certificate: 12

Synopsis: A ten-year-old cartographer secretly leaves his family’s ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country aboard a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute.

Director Jean-Pierre Jenuet paints a distinctive pallet of work from Delicatessen (1991) to A Very Long Engagement (2004), but you’d probably be most familiar with the wonderful Amelie starring Audrey Tautou. Never a stranger to taking an alternative look at a story, his beautiful visuals continue in The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet alongside a strong blood-beating heart to take hold of.

T.S. Spivet tells the story of its namesake, a ten-year boy who’s a genius and impeccably portrayed by Kyle Catlett in his feature film debut. Spivet lives in Montana »

Music Box And Soda Pictures Acquire Toronto’s Gemma Arterton-starrer ‘Gemma Bovery’ (Exclusive)

18 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Chicago-based Music Box Films and U.K.’s Soda Pictures have acquired Anne Fontaine’s “Gemma Bovery,” a romantic comedy toplining British rising star Gemma Arterton, on the heels of its Special Presentation premiere at Toronto.

Sold and co-produced by Gaumont, “Gemma” was warmly received at Toronto where it steered a standing ovation and proved one of the fest’s arthouse crossover highlights.  A satirical take on Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel “Madame Bovary,” “Gemma” also sparked two offers from Australian buyers.

“Gemma” stars Arterton as a passionate young British woman who moves with her husband to a small Norman town where she meets a quirky French baker, played by popular Gallic thesp Fabrice Luchini.

The U.S. deal with Music Box Films was negotiated by president William Schopf and managing director Ed Arentz, and Gaumont International’s boss Cecile Gaget and deputy head of sales Yohann Comte.

Toronto: Gaumont Snags Buyers for ‘Gemma Bovery’ (Exclusive)

6 September 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gaumont has inked a raft of major pre-sales on Anne Fontaine’s “Gemma Bovery,” a romantic comedy with Gemma Arterton, ahead of its world premiere at Toronto.

Gaumont has pre-sold the film, a playful twist on Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel “Madame Bovary,” to Germany (Prokino), Benelux (Victory), Italy (Officine Ubu), Brazil (Mares Filmes), Scandinavia (Atlantic), Canada (Metropole), Middle East (Four Star), Cis (Exponenta), Greece (Odeon), Switzerland (Pathe) and South Korea (Sejong).

Arterton stars as a passionate young British woman who moves with her husband to a provincial Norman town where she meets a quirky, yet charming French baker.

Arterton plays opposite French star Fabrice Luchini, one of Gaul’s rare bankable actors.

“Gemma” was penned by Fontaine and Pascal Bonitzer, based on a graphic novel by Posy Simmonds, the author of “Tamara Drewe,” which was adapted to the bigscreen by Stephen Frears and also toplined Arterton. Pic was produced »

Berenice Bejo Dwells on the Past; Replaces Binoche on Corbet’s “The Childhood of the Leader”

20 August 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Sometimes life doesn’t play out like in the movies, or rather, sometimes the movies don’t play out like in real life. Actor-director Brady Corbet can fondly look back at Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria as proof (he plays an author courting the A-lister) that Juliette Binoche was his first choice, but due to scheduling conflicts, a Cosmopolis-like reunion between the actress and Robert Pattinson will have no longer be the case. Variety reports that the matriarch role now goes to Berenice Bejo, the Oscar nominated actress who saw her last film (by hubby Michel Hazanavicius) get panned in Cannes, will next be featured alongside Melanie Laurent and Audrey Tautou in Tran Anh Hung’s Eternity. The Childhood of the Leader is now set for a November shoot in Budapest.

Review: Mood Indigo

16 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

If one can expect anything from Michel Gondry, it is that along with the whimsy and touch of the bizarre inherent in his work is an element of truth.  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind uses erasure imagery to illustrate the pain of heartbreak. Be Kind Rewind has friendly video store employees creating their own versions of Hollywood hits for their neighborhood.  Gondry's latest film, love story Mood Indigo, however, is utterly drowning in whimsy and lacking any figment of truth.

Debonair and bearded Romain Duris (Populaire, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) stars as Colin, living off family money in a spacious Paris apartment. Audrey Tautou (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement) plays cute Chloe, whom Colin meets at a party. The plot goes something like this: guy meets girl, guy and girl fall in love and marry, flower grows in girl's lung.

There's also a B-plot, involving a friend (Gad Elmaleh, »

Check Out The First Behind-The-Scenes Pics From Michel Gondry's 'Microbe et Gasoil'

15 August 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As usual, Michel Gondry is mixing it up. After dropping the documentary "Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky" and the fantastical "Mood Indigo," the filmmaker is going lo-fi again, with filming started on "Microbe et Gasoil." And embracing the age in which everything is shared all the time, he's allowed the first behind-the-scenes pics from the film to be posted via Instagram. While the movie features Audrey Tautou in a role (not pictured), the rest of the cast are new faces. The movie tells the story of two teenagers who escape everyday drudgery by building a car and traveling across the France. A road trip movie from the brain of Gondry? Sounds good to us. And if these pics are anything to go by, it looks like a pretty modest production all around. No release dates. Pics below.    »

Movie Review – Mood Indigo (2013)

3 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mood Indigo (French: L’écume des jours), 2013

Directed by Michel Gondry.

Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon.

Synopsis:

Wealthy, inventive bachelor Colin endeavors to find a cure for his lover Chloe after she’s diagnosed with an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.

I can honestly say I’ve never seen a film quite like Mood Indigo before. I’d be lying if I said everything I saw made sense, or if I could articulate what was happening and why, but director Michel Gondry has a truly unique style and it’s one I am certainly in favour of, but would not wish to see anyone else attempt it.

The plot is straightforward (to a degree) as Colin and Chloe, two hip Parisians, meet, fall in love, get married, and then Chloe is diagnosed with a disease, »

Mood Indigo movie review: mood disrupted

1 August 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Delightfully bonkers stop-motion vacuumpunk madness comes to an abrupt halt in this mysteriously truncated version of Michel Gondry’s latest romantic whimsy. I’m “biast” (pro): love Michel Gondry

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is not a thing you ever want to hear: “Michel Gondry’s shorter, preferred cut for American audiences.” That was the proud announcement included in a press release about Mood Indigo from a U.S. publicist for the film, and that 90-odd-minute version is the same one I saw at a press screening here in London. Why does Gondry think we English speakers don’t warrant the two-hour-plus version of his whimsical love story? What doesn’t he want us to see? What does he think we can’t handle?

This is what I saw: an hour »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Director Michel Gondry on Mood Indigo

30 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Whimsicality is a tough old nut to crack in cinema, with filmmakers attempts so often contrived. However one man that has walked that tight rope so often before – triumphantly – is Michel Gondry, and the man behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, now returns with his latest endeavour Mood Indigo, where he’s as surrealistic and whimsical as he’s ever been.

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with the unique filmmaker to discuss his latest project, as he told us what it was about this renowned Boris Vian novel that inspired him to make a movie, and he explained his decision to be so creative with this piece, and the balancing act between the more intimate aspects of the narrative, with the grandiose.

We also spoke to the film’s two leading stars, Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou, to tie in with the release of Chinese Puzzle, »

Mood Indigo Review

28 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

While those this side of the English Channel may not have heard of it as such, Boris Vian’s influential 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream is one that has become almost ingrained in French, teenage society, as a piece of literature that is something of a staple, must-read amongst a younger, impressionable crowd. Gaining a cult-following in the process, the much celebrated, innovative filmmaker Michel Gondry seemed the perfect fit to bring this fantastical tale to the big screen. However in this instance, the director’s inclination for contrived whimsicality devalues an otherwise enchanting love story.

Of course the story demands a surrealistic, wondrous approach, given the ethereal, dreamlike nature of the tale – but what can be achieved on paper does not always amount to a triumph on screen, as some things are best left to our wildest imaginations. To help bring this tale to the big screen (renamed Mood Indigo »

Michel Gondry interview: Mood Indigo, Eternal Sunshine, Ubik

25 July 2014 12:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We talk to one-of-a-kind filmmaker Michel Gondry about his new film Mood Indigo, Eternal Sunshine, Philip K Dick adaptation Ubik and more...

Interview

Over the period of 20-or-so years, Michel Gondry has steadily built up a voluminous and relentlessly individual body of work, ranging from commercials and experimental short films to full-length features. Although Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless Mind is arguably Gondry’s best-known and most acclaimed work, he's also made such films as Be Kind, Rewind, The Science Of Sleep, his quirky collaboration with Noam Chomsky, Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?, and The Green Hornet, while flawed, has much to enjoy in it.

Mood Indigo is Gondry’s latest feature, and once again, it’s hand-crafted, warm and decidedly dreamlike. Based on the novel L'Écume des jours by Boris Vian, it’s about a young man named Colin (Romain Duris) who falls in love with a »

In a season where studios are spendings hundreds of millions of dollars on special effects to help tell fantastical stories, once again Michel Gondry is showing Hollywood how it's done. On a much smaller scale, and with far less cash, "Mood Indigo" presents no less an imaginative story, full with no shortage of Gondry-esque touches. And today we have some special items for Gondry fans. Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon, "Mood Indigo" is based on the cult novel by Boris Vian and follows the the wealthy bachelor Colin, who falls headlong into a dizzy romance with Chloé.

Exclusive 'Mood Indigo' clip takes us on a wild ride through Michel Gondry's Paris

22 July 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I just reviewed Michael Gondry's "Mood Indigo," but I'll add that a week or so after seeing it, there are images from the movie that randomly pop into my head each day. While narrative and logic may not be Gondry's primary interests when he's making a movie, images are, and there's no faulting him for the way he's created these visual ideas that make "Mood Indigo" feel like something I dreamed, not something I actually saw. The film begins to expand to more screens this weekend, and Drafthouse Films decided to celebrate by sending us an exclusive clip that I think does a wonderful job of laying out how sublimely silly Gondry's world is for this film. With clips from giant summer movies or most studio fare, you probably already know whether or not you want to see something. Sure, it's nice to get a peek at something if you're excited about it, »
