Ah, Michel Gondry, how you continue to play with our minds with your clever twists on what we see and what we think we see. This is no sarcasm, this is pure praise, and it looks set to continue in this second trailer for Audrey Tautou-starring Mood Indigo. The Amelie stars in this charming-looking movie Romain Duris as Colin plus roles for Omar Sy, Jamel Debbouze and Gad Elmaleh that’s based on Boris Vian’s 1947 book “L’Ecume des jours” or “Froth on the Daydream” for those scrabbling for Google Translate.
It’s another romantic-based film, but Gondry’s films are all around the journey within the film itself and you’ll see almost instantaneously all the new, weird and wonderful contraptions that he’s put together. If you’re a fan of his films Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and the Science Of Sleep, then you »

After interestingly taking on the subject of teenage friendships in 2012.s The We and the I, Michel Gondry . he who made both Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Green Hornet, somehow . reverted back to his French origins for an adaptation of Boris Vian.s wildly imaginative 1947 novel L.Ecume des jours, which translates to Foam of the Daze or Froth on the Daydream depending on who translates it. And beyond just having a Gondry-esque title, it seems as if the director was put on this planet specifically to bring these illusory images to life. Somehow there are even more enchanting images here than there were in Mood Indigo.s first trailer we showed you a few months back, and this one even has subtitles, even though it.s hard to read words while stars Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou are flying around in a mini-cloud spaceship thing.

StudioCanal has released the new trailer for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo ("L'écume des jours"), starring Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, Philippe Torreton, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte le Bon. The film is an adaptation of Boris Vian's international bestseller and is described as follows: In a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole, Colin, a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants to fall in love. With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend Chick, he meets Chloe, the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune. But soon after their wedding, Chloe falls ill. She has a water lily growing in her chest. Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly »
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, »

Paris -- What do a miniature mouse-man, a walking doorbell, a hall of rotating typewriters and a dining room table on roller skates have in common? You guessed it: They’re all part of Michel Gondry’s latest opus wackyus, Mood Indigo (L’Ecume des jours), adapted from Boris Vian’s famous novel of the postwar, jazz-loving, pipe-smoking, Saint-Germain-des-Pres epoque. Yet not only are these and many other handcrafted, stop-motion creations -- including guitar strings made of sunlight and a pair of shoes that hop around like puppies -- the major players here, but they are literally tossed together during

Next month Audrey Tautou will host the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival, an honour only given to a select few. Is she finally overcoming the curse of her most successful film?
For someone as shy and discreet as Audrey Tautou, the next few weeks will be feel uncomfortably like putting her head above the parapet again, exposed to potshots from her Gallic critics.
On the other hand her British fans, who remember her as the pixie-faced heroine of The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain, one of the most successful French films of all time, can look forward to a feast after the famine.
Next month the film Thérèse Desqueyroux, an adaptation of the François Mauriac 1927 classic released in France last November, in which Tautou plays the title role of a repressed wife who poisons her domineering, misogynistic husband, will open in British cinemas.
Around the same time, Tautou »

One of our most anticipated films of 2013, "Mood Indigo," is still without a U.S. distributor despite boasting the name of Michel Gondry in the director's chair, and a cast that includes familiar arthouse faces Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris and Omar Sy. So far, we've certainly been piqued by what we've seen -- a good serving of Gondry whimsy, combined with an adaptation of a beloved novel by Boris Vian -- and these five new clips certainly raise the stakes a bit more. Now, a warning -- there are no subtitles here, but they are all still worth a look, if only to take in the visuals on display. From our lead couple Colin and Chloe (Tautou and Duris), launching up into the sky, or looking out a glass walled limo, this is certainly Gondry in top, creative form. Even breakfast gets a distinct makeover from the filmmaker and perhaps most of all, »

Tautou, who was present on screen and in person at last year's closing screening of the late Claude Miller's final film Thérèse Desqueyroux, currently appears in Michel Gondry's Boris Vian adaptation Mood Indigo (L'écume Des Jours) alongside Romain Duris and due for a French release this month.
Tautou and Duris also have hooked up again for Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête Chinois) which is Cédric Klapisch's follow up to Pot Luck (L'auberge Espanol) and Russian Dolls with the same characters another 10 years on. It is due for French release in December.
Thierry Frémaux, Cannes artistic director, is set to reveal this year's official selection at a press conference in Paris on Thursday April 18 »

After surprising everyone with a sojourn into the world of mainstream superheroes with 2011's disappointing Green Hornet, Michel Gondry is set to dazzle us with his seemingly bottomless, puppet-assisted, felt-made imagination in Mood Indigo and the new trailer, though completely in French and void of subtitles, is so visually wondrous that even if you don't grasp the entirety of the story, we'll bet you smile.
Although the story is worthy of your attention, so let us explain: based on the 1947 book "L'ecume des Jours" by French author Boris Vian, Mood Indigo follows Colin (Romain Duris), an inventor, his creation "the pianocktail" combines music and drinking, who meets and falls for the beautiful Chloe (Audrey Tautou) who gets sick after their nuptials with an interesting affliction (water lily in the lung) that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers. Colin spends his considerable fortune on making sure Chloe gets »

To put it quite simply, Michel Gondry's upcoming "Mood Indigo" looks like the return to form many fans have been waiting for. While the director has been off pursuing various other challenges in the film world, it's been a while since we've dropped into the sort of cinematic funhouse he's put up on screen in "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind," "The Science Of Sleep" or even "Be Kind Rewind" (underrated in this writer's opinion). But "Mood Indigo" looks like an utterly charming, whimsical romance, and after a gorgeous first trailer in January, a brand new, equally lovely spot has emerged. Featuring much more dialogue and an array of new footage along with a bit of stuff we've seen before, this trailer once again plays up the romance at the heart of the story, while perhaps keeping the more tragic elements hinted at for now. Based on the beloved novel by Boris Vian, »

While recent efforts like the documentary "The Thorn In The Heart," the superhero blockbuster "The Green Hornet," and indie "The We And The I" have all allowed Michel Gondry to take some detours, it's been a while since we've seen a movie that's, well, Gondry-esque. But it looks like the filmmaker is firmly back in his wheelhouse with "Mood Indigo," which debuted a gorgeous trailer about a month ago. And with its spring release overseas gearing up, some fresh promo material has arrived. New character posters have dropped for the movie, centering on leads Audrey Tautou, Omar Sy and Gad Elmaleh. Based on Boris Vian's 1947 novel, "L'Ecume des jours," the film tells the tale of Colin (played by Romain Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument. He marries Chloe (Tautou), but unfortunately she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, »

Directed by: Michel Gondry
Rating: Not Yet Rated
Release Date: Tba (April 24, 2013 in France)
Trailer Score: 9/10
Thoughts by Tsr: The first thing you might notice about this trailer for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo is that there is a distinct lack of subtitles. If your understanding of French is similar to mine, you were able to understand “bonjour” and not much else. Luckily the Gondry magic shines through thanks to see-through limos, cloud cars, and Omar Sy dancing. Even without understanding the French parts, the images and tone sell this film perfectly well.
Gondry is a director I consider myself a big fan of despite only loving one of his films. While I haven’t been a huge fan of his past few efforts – The Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind, and The Green Hornet all have aspects I like, but »

I’m a big fan of Michel Gondry’s work, his inventiveness and surrealism twists perfectly into stories of love, loss and intriguingly they still end up being a part of realism. Whereas some directly end up being pretentious *coughs Malick*, I always believe the playful side of this director makes for a refreshing outcome, every time.
Back in June of last year, we had a first look behind-the-scenes at Mood Indigo (L’Ecume des jours) and now we’ve got the first French trailer (with English subtitles) for the film starring beauty Audrey Tautou, alongside Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh and Alain Chabat. Based on the novel L’Ecume des jours by Boris Vian, the film is about Chloe (Tautou), who suffers from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs, and the only way to save her – is to surround her with flowers all the time. »

Kerry Washington, Salma Hayek, Selena Gomez, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Chloe Grace Moretz, Freida Pinto and Meryl Streep all lend their voices to the documentary Girl Rising. This important film “spotlights the impact access to education could have on the lives of young girls in developing countries and their local economies.”
Next Thursday is the one-hour series finale of 30 Rock. (Where are my tissues?) Check out a sneak peek of the last episode ever!

Although Michel Gondry's The We and the I still has yet to get an official release date in North America, his next movie is already heading to theatres in France this spring. Entitled Mood Indigo, it is based on the book L'Ecume des Jours (Froth on the Daydream) by Boris Vian and it stars Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped) as a wealthy inventor who creates an olfactory-musical instrument called the pianocktail. His wife (Audrey Tatou) becomes ill with a water lily in the lungs, a condition that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers. Yep, that sounds like a Michel Gondry movie alright. The weird thing is the book has already apparently been adapted for the screen twice before, once by French director Charles Belmont and more recently by Japanese filmmaker Go Riju. A French trailer for Gondry's version has arrived online this week »
Tauto stars as a women who has a sickness caused by a flower growing in her lungs. And the only treatment is surrounding her with even more flowers.
The movie is based on the novel L’Ecume des Jours by Boris Vian.
The trailer is all in French, but there’s very little dialogue, mainly just a lot of Gondry’s signature life-as-a-beautiful-fantasy playfulness. Underwater weddings, feathers as weather, and loving gazes abound. »

"Mood Indigo," Michel Gondry's new film, based on Boris Vian's 1947 novel "L'Ecume des Jours" (English translation: "The Froth of Daydreams") has just released a French-language full-length trailer. In the film, a woman (Audrey Tautou) encounters a strange illness due to a water lily growing in her lungs. All this comes after falling in love and marrying a wealthy inventor (Romain Duris). Michel Gondry territory, indeed. Omar Sy ("The Intouchables") also stars. The film opens in France on April 24, making it a strong possibility for a Cannes debut. No U.S. distributor yet. »

Des histoires d'amour. Whoa! Underwater weddings, see-through limousines, floating cloud chair lifts, ice skating controlled by a record player. Should we expect anything else from the twisted French mastermind Michel Gondry? I think not. The first official French trailer for Mood Indigo, Gondry's latest film, has debuted today and it's a must watch. Partially because this looks like his Amelie (thanks mostly to Audrey Tautou being adorable as always) but also because it looks wacky and full of love and so much fun. Besides Tautou, this is also stars Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh and Alain Chabat. Check it out now! Here's the first French trailer for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo, found on YouTube (via Vulture): Gondry's Mood Indigo, based on Boris Vian's 1947 novel "L'Ecume des jours" (or "Froth on the Daydream"), stars Audrey Tautou as Chloë, a woman who marries an inventor but falls ill »
