Film Review: ‘Mood Indigo’

23 April 2013 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After an opera adaptation and earlier cinematic efforts by Go Riju and Charles Belmont, Boris Vian’s supposedly unfilmable cult novel “Froth on a Daydream” has been adapted to the bigscreen as Michel Gondry’s often inventive but finally exhausting “Mood Indigo.” Gondry’s trademark do-it-yourself production design (“Be Kind Rewind,” “The Science of Sleep”) is given a big-budget showcase here, but the resulting yarn, about a rich man rendered penniless by his ailing g.f.’s need for flowers to stay alive, is emotionally stunted and lacks the requisite sense of tragedy. With Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou playing two iconic characters, initial local B.O. should be solid; offshore, “Mood” will be cooler.

Finally back on Gallic home turf after “The Green Hornet” and “The We and the I,” Gondry would seem the perfect filmmaker to adapt Vian’s work and bring to life such flights of fancy as the pianocktail, »

The First Trailer for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo with Audrey Tautou

25 January 2013 3:41 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns behind the camera to bring us Mood Indigo this spring, another fantastical drama that we can’t wait to see.

Led by Audrey Tautou (Amélie) and Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), the first poster for the film debuted earlier in the month. And after a handful of weird and wonderful first images late last year, the underwater setting of the first poster confirmed that this is going to be another great and playful picture from Gondry.

And with its April release in France approaching, the first international trailer has debuted online, and it is brilliant.

Courtesy of Google Translate, the synopsis in English looks a little something like this, with a few tweaks from myself to make it a little more comprehensible:

“The surreal and poetic story of an idealistic and inventive young man, Colin, who meets Chloe, »

First Poster For Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

14 January 2013 10:23 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

We told you nearly two years ago that outstanding Audrey Tautou will appear in Oscar-winning Michel Gondry’s next big movie. Last summer some surreal images also popped out, but it was impossible to understand what the movie is about by browsing the photos alone.

Now the first poster for the new drama Mood Indigo with fantastical elements has been unveiled, and it puts the film’s stars, Tautou and Romain Duruis, underwater.

Mood Indigo is based upon Boris Vian‘s 1947 novel ‘L’Écume des Jours’ (Froth on the Daydream) which tells the story of the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument who marries a woman, who develops an illness that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers — an expense that soon drains his funds.

Penned by Luc Bossi, the ideal Gondry project also stars Omar Sy, Vincent London, Gad Elmaleh, Alain Chabet, Charlotte Le Bon, Aïssa Maïga, »

First Poster for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo with Audrey Tautou

14 January 2013 6:53 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Oscar-winning writer-director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns to the big screen this year with Mood Indigo, an anticipated new drama with fantastical elements that has our interest piqued.

Led by the ever-brilliant Audrey Tautou (Amélie) and Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), we saw some rather weird and wonderful first official images from the film last summer. With its release date over in France now on the horizon, the first international poster has surfaced online.

The film,

“tells the tale of Colin (Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument, the pianocktail. He marries Chloe (Tautou), but unfortunately, she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with fresh flowers – an expense that soon drains his funds.”

Starring alongside Tautou and Duris will be Omar Sy, »
