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 »

Contest: Win 'Mood Indigo' Poster Signed By Michel Gondry And Audrey Tautou

24 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. But when she succumbs to an unusual illness, one that causes a flower begins to grow in her lungs, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround her with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers. It's the perfect kind of story for Gondry to tackle, »

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, »

Audrey Tautou on Mood Indigo and Fearing the Red Carpet

21 July 2014 | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Audrey Tautou is no stranger to whimsy — she starred in Amélie, after all — but she’s never made a movie quite like Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo. Truth be told, nobody has: In addition to an unusual story that finds Tautou’s character falling ill because of a water lily growing in her lungs, Gondry dresses up the movie around her with all manner of visual tricks, from stop-motion animation to bizarre-yet-practical special effects. Still, there may be no better effect in the movie than the impish sensibility that Tautou comes by quite naturally. Last week, she called up Vulture to discuss her love of Michel Gondry and problems with the red carpet.There are so many creative special effects in Mood Indigo. Which was your favorite?Maybe because I’m 7 years old, but I really love the special effect with the doorbell [where it crawls around and is smashed »

Audrey Tautou on Reality Behind Michel Gondry's Surreal 'Mood Indigo'

18 July 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As one might expect from Michel Gondry, his new film, Mood Indigo, features surreal scenes, set pieces and sight gags that one wouldn't expect to see in reality. But almost all the inventive creations seen in the film really existed on set, star Audrey Tautou tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I never shot in front of a greenscreen or a bluescreen," the actress says, explaining that she and co-star Romain Duris really took a magical ride over Paris in a floating vehicle designed to resemble a cloud and danced with giant jazz legs, as shown in the movie.

Michel Gondry on Mood Indigo and His Music-Video Past

18 July 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a world where anything can be created in a computer, we need filmmakers like Michel Gondry more than ever. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director has a real affinity for practical, tangible special-effects that have a certain handmade charm, and he's never stuffed more of them into a movie than he has with his new effort, Mood Indigo, a whimsical tragi-romance where the courtship between Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou is threatened by a water lily growing inside her lungs. (For more proof of Mood Indigo's out-there visual sensibility, check out our collection of crazy GIFs from the film.) Gondry called up Vulture yesterday to discuss how he made the movie his own, his sometimes-confusing friendship with Dave Chappelle, and why he wasn't as successful a music-video director as you might have thought.Is there any part of Mood Indigo that we might be surprised to find »

Michel Gondry and Audrey Tautou in conversation on Mood Indigo

Michel Gondry had a Tin Drum moment on the red carpet for his Mood Indigo*, starring Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris with Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon. Boris Vian transformed into Günter Grass with a Volker Schlöndorff image stuck in and out of Gondry's head ending up in Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy? An Animated Conversation With Noam Chomsky and out of a faucet in Mood Indigo. Tautou and Duris walked the red carpet in 2013 at The Paris Theatre - she for Claude Miller's Thérèse Desqueyroux and he for Régis Roinsard's Populaire.

Studiocanal Reteams Michel Gondry on ‘Microbe et Gasoil’

18 July 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Studiocanal is set to reteam with Michel Gondry on “Microbe et Gasoil,” the French helmer’s follow-up to “Mood Indigo.”

Pic is a comedy turning on two left-of-field teenagers, Microbe and Gasoil, who, instead of spending their summer vacations with their parents, decide to build their own car and embark on a doomed yet colorful road trip across France.

A pair of newcomers will be cast in the lead roles. Audrey Tautou (“Amelie,” “Mood Indigo”) will also star.

Shooting will take place in Ile de France (Paris and its suburbs) and Bourgogne between August 4 and late October.

Pic is produced by Gondry’s longtime collaborator, Georges Bermann, at Paris-based Partizan. Studiocanal is co-producing, and will be distributing as well as handling international sales.

Studiocanal worked with Gondry on his latest feature film, “Mood Indigo,” a romantic fantasy pic based on Boris Vian’s “Froth on the Daydream.”

The Da Vinci Code

18 July 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

All-purpose director Ron Howard brings the requisite cinematic flash to novelist Dan Brown's twistacular tale of Catholic intrigue, killer monks and mythical relics. Tom Hanks plays Robert Langdon, the tenacious Harvard professor who hooks up with Audrey Tautou's cryptologist to discover the whereabouts of the Holy Grail. The oddly un-Christian attitude of Paul Bettany's murderous monk is just one intriguing part of the byzantine riddle. »

Here’s Proof That Michel Gondry’s New Film Is the Michel Gondriest Film Ever

17 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As a director, Michel Gondry has never been afraid to engage in a bit of visual whimsy: Just think of the “Baby Joel” scenes from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Green Hornet’s fight sequences, the “dream preparation” bit from The Science of Sleep, or nearly any clip from Gondry’s long and delightful music-video résumé. (The man is not afraid of a little bit of yarn and a lot of stop-motion animation.) Still, even audiences who are used to Gondry’s inventiveness may be surprised by the sheer amount of visual quirks he’s packed into his newest film, Mood Indigo. The movie’s unusual premise — Colin (Romain Duris) must attend to the love of his life (Audrey Tautou) when a water lily begins to grow in her lungs — may actually be the most down-to-earth thing about it, because rarely a minute passes by in Mood Indigo »

Audrey Tautou reunites with Michel Gondry on Microbes et gasoil

17 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Audrey Tautou will star in Michel Gondry's next film Microbes et gasoil.

The actress will reunite with the director after starring in his latest film Mood Indigo.

"It's a sort of coming-of-age movie with two teenagers who are outcasts, and you see them sort of struggling with the rest of the class at school," Gondry told Nerdist.

"They eventually build a car, and they go and cross France with their special car that they've built. But they've built the car in the shape of a house so the cops cannot arrest them.

"They are not of an age to drive, so when the cops drive by, they stop the car and it looks like a house. So they have many funny adventures. It's quite imaginative, but it's gonna be shot in a very realistic manner."

Tautou features opposite Romain Duris in Mood Indigo, which will be released on July »

Review: 'Amelie' star Audrey Tautou lights up Michel Gondry's sweet and sad 'Mood Indigo'

15 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

From the moment it sputters to low-fi life, "Mood Indigo" is unmistakably the work of Michel Gondry, a sweet and sad little song of longing with the most visually inventive approach to emotion in any film this year. It is a strange surreal world that Gondry has created, one with no rules other than if someone in love starts coughing, that's not a good sign for them making it through to the end of the film. Gondry is a romantic, no doubt about it, and he's also a guy who rejects the idea of living a "normal" life, meaning his lead character is a man-child who drifts through his days, his whole mind focused on whimsy and the ridiculous. The worst thing in the world in this film is the notion of getting trapped into doing a "normal" job. Gondry seems to view that as death. Sure, he's working from a novel by Boris Vian, »
