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 Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 40-31

12 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Horror is really the only genre that has entries that, while “good,” may not necessarily mean “recommended.” So, how does that affect what is “definitive?” A recent conversation brought up the nightmare of a movie A Serbian Film (great review here from Justine) which, by all accounts, is a horror film. But, while everyone in film circles knows about the film (many have even seen it), I can’t imagine anyone actually recommending it. It’s made impact, sure. But at what cost? The best horror films aren’t simply there to scare and disgust viewers. They’re there to serve as metaphors for other issues, however big or small. But the best ones are those that do it in a way that, while still may scare and disgust you, will also make you think and reevaluate your situation.

50 brilliant movie opening credits sequences

25 June 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a range of eras and genres, here's Jenny and Alex's light-hearted pick of 50 great opening title sequences from the movies...

Odd List

We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.

The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »

Interview with Jean-Pierre Jeunet about Ts Spivet

13 June 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Jean-Pierre Jeunet: "I think of a film as being like a toy train."

He has a small but perfectly formed body of work (seven films in total) although Jean-Pierre Jeunet is best known to most as the director of [fiilm id=8803]Amelie[/film]. There was also a sortie to Hollywood for Alien: Resurrection. More recently he offered up the satirical comedy about weapons merchants Micmacs.

Jeunet was born in Roanne in the Loire valley. He bought his first camera at the age of 17 and made short films while studying animation. He befriended Marc Caro, a designer and comic book artist who became his long-time collaborator and co-director. Their first live action film was The Bunker Of The Last Gunshots (1981), a short film about soldiers in a bleak futuristic world. He also directed numerous advertisements and music videos.

Jeunet and Caro's first feature film was Delicatessen (1991), a black comedy set in a famine-plagued post-apocalyptic world, »

Movie Review – The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2014)

12 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, 2014.

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham Carter, Dominique Pinon, Kyle Catlett, Judy Davis and Jakob Davies.

Synopsis:

Upon receiving the news that he has won an award from the Smithsonian Institute, the ten-year-old Ts Spivet leaves his family home on an adventure to collect his prize.

Whenever I watch a Jean-Pierre Jeunet picture, the feelings that it invokes are always the same. There is fascination and wonder, not disimilar to the feelings of open-mouthed awe at everything from the eyes of a blind man seeing for the first time. It might not actually be that revolutionary, but dressed up just right, it is still a previously unwitnessed treat. Like the eponymous Ts Spivet, you could also liken it to the inquisitve nature of a curious and innocently optimistic child, not knowing what’s coming but anticipating the nervous excitement of its arrival, »

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet Review

10 June 2014 5:30 AM, 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

Running Time: 105 minutes

Certificate: 12A

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. »

The Young and Prodigious Ts Spivet review: Whimsical tale of child genius

9 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet; Screenwriters: Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Guillaume Laurant; Starring: Kyle Catlett, Jakob Davies, Helena Bonham Carter, Niamh Wilson, Callum Keith Rennie, Judy Davis; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: 12A

From the director who brought you Amelie comes another cute and whimsical, magical realist fable, this time adapted from a children's book by the American novelist Reif Larsen. It's ably fronted by button-nosed tyke Kyle Catlett, who somehow manages not to be completely upstaged by the dreamy effects that take us into his genius mind. It's the unlikeliest 3D movie of the year, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet appears to have a better grasp on the technology than your average action maestro.

Helena Bonham Carter is the closest we get to a grounding influence in this story, playing mother, a kooky entomologist who married a sullen cowboy (Callum Keith Rennie) and is raising Ts and his big sister Gracie (Niamh Wilson) in the gorgeous prairielands of Montana. »

Watch: Whimsical New Clip From Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ‘Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet’

5 June 2014 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Avid filmgoers likely have a handle already on what emotions director Jean-Pierre Jeunet stirs up, as over distinctive efforts like “Amelie," “The City of Lost Children," and “Delicatessen” he’s fashioned a completely unique perspective that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But Jeunet’s latest work, “The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet," strays into new territory — being entirely family friendly and in 3D for a start — and close to the film’s German premiere and UK release, we have a new clip to share. Adapted from the novel by Reif Larson, the film also breaks from Jeunet’s wheelhouse by placing the action outside of Europe and places it in rural Montana. The story follows 10-year-old T.S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett), a child prodigy who lives with his scientist mother (Helena Bonham Carter), ranch owner father (Callum Keith Rennie), and two siblings (Niamh Wilson and Jakob Davies). He »

Chinese Puzzle | Review

4 June 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Tuft of Fluff: Klapisch Bids Adieu to Globetrotting Crew

Diehard fans of Cedric 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 meandering yet considerable baggage the quartet of main characters have carried through two other films. Coasting mostly on the affable charm of its stars and likeable characters, this final chapter manages to walk a fine line between hopeful and melancholy as we at last leave them all behind. However, the most potent aspect of the film is perhaps the nostalgia one might feel as they’re forced to recollect the wonderful, scrappy charm of that first entry from over a decade ago.

Now nearing or entering their 40s, »

Jeunet's Spivet to open Munich

4 June 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s The Young and Prodigious Spivet will be the opening film at this year’s Filmfest München (June 27-July 5) after Jeunet previously kicked off the festival in Munich in 2001 with Amelie From Montmartre.

Special highlights at what will be Diana Iljine’s fourth outing as festival director include the first ever complete retrospective dedicated to the veteran Us director Walter Hill, a gala evening in honour of the Oscar-winning producer Arthur Cohn with a screening of The Children Of Huang Shi, and a tribute to the producer-director-cinematographer Willy Bogner.

The Walter Hill retrospective will range from his 1975 debut Hard Times, starring Charles Bronson and James Coburn, through such classics as The Long Riders and The Warriors  and two films made for Us television - the pilot Deadwood and the Western epic Broken Trail - to his 2012 film Bullet To The Head, with Sylvester Stallone and Christian Slater.

London — Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet” will open the Munich Film Festival, which will also fete director Walter Hill and producer Arthur Cohn.

Be Charmed By Full Trailer For Darkly Whimsical Hungarian Fantasy-Romance Liza, The Fox Fairy

27 May 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

If you detect just a touch of Jean Pierre Jeunet's Amelie in the DNA of Hungarian romantic fantasy Liza, The Fox Fairy I do believe that director Károly Ujj Mészáros would be just fine with that. Fox-Fairies are evil demons according to Japanese tales that rob the souls of men. Liza, the 35-year-old naive nurse, who wants to find the love of her life in Budapest, thinks she is one of them, since all men attracted to her die on the first date. Can Liza find a man who can survive her?It was a year and a half back now when we ran the first teaser for this one - back when the picture was still early in production - and with the VFX heavy...

‘Mood Indigo’ Trailer: Like Candy-Colored Heroin for You ‘Amelie’ Obsessives

23 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Back away from your fluffy DVD collection, unhand that Cheshire Cat-smiling theatrical poster and give that cardboard box some breathing room — it’s time for us to hit you with a big, fresh smack of charm and colors and Audrey Tautou just like, totally dying. Michel Gondry is back, baby, and he’s got an extremely “Michel Gondry”-looking film to entertain his (adorably) rabid fanbase, all with extra Tautou sweetness to rope in the Amelie obsessives out there. It’s sort of like if drugs were made out of cotton candy and gentle nap time dreams. And, yes, that’s a very good thing. Looking more like the direct descendent of his The Science of Sleep (a film that I will champion until the day I die, if only for the yarn ponies) than a close sibling of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mood Indigo has Gondry again trafficking in charm, a »

Us Trailer Released For Eccentric ‘Mood Indigo’

23 May 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A brand new Us trailer has been released for Michel Gondry’s latest project Mood Indigo, starring Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris.

Duris stars as Colin, a lonely scientist living in an eccentric world. After professing his desire to find his one true love, his friends set him up with Chloe (Tautou), with Colin believing his life has truly begun. However, when Chloe falls ill it’s up to her new husband to cure her.

Gondry is probably best know for the spectacular and heart-rending Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (my favourite film ever!), with Mood Indigo reminding me of a cross between Eternal… and Amelie, the film considered Tautou’s break-out role. However, will anything ever live up to Gondry’s debut feature film? Sadly, probably not.

Mood Indigo will arrive in Us cinemas from 18th July. The film is currently awaiting a UK release date.

Watch The First U.S. Trailer For Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

22 May 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mood Indigo is set to hit theaters stateside on July 18th and if this trailer is any indication, it may very well be the most fun film Gondry has made in years. It stars Audrey Tautou (Amelie) and Romain Duris (The Beat My Heart Skipped) as Chloe and Colin, respectively, two young people who meet and soon fall in love. Shortly after they get married, however, Chloe develops an illness that only deteriorates over time. According to the official plot description, her illness is caused by a flower growing in her lungs. So yeah, it’s that kind of movie.

When Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind first hit theaters ten years ago, it seemed as if everyone involved with the film was at the peak of their careers. Sadly, things have not been the same since. Jim Carrey has struggled to remain relevant, Charlie Kaufman hasn’t »

Outgoing Cannes President Gilles Jacob Reflects on Fest’s Past and Future

13 May 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seated at his desk in a third-floor office at the Cannes Film Festival’s Paris headquarters, Gilles Jacob exudes the calm, patrimonial authority of a lion in winter — or, as Jacob likes to describe himself, a veteran fire chief who has weathered all manner of blaze. After nearly 40 years heading the world’s most important and influential film festival, there is little that can dent his Teflon exterior, and as this king of Cannes prepares to exit his throne, it is not with Lear-like madness or Leno-like resentment, but rather a tremendous feeling of accomplishment and a master showman’s sense of quitting while you’re ahead.

“You have to know to stop before they tell you to stop,” says Jacob, 83, who will step down as festival president following this year’s edition. Jacob, who has held the post since 2001, previously served as Cannes’ festival artistic director for an unprecedented »

Charming First Trailer & Images For Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ‘The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet’

4 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ll be honest and say I didn’t know too much about The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet before watching the new trailer from Entertainment One UK, and at first glance I get the sense of a little Wes Anderson entwined with Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s very distinct direction.

You’ll know him best for Amelie but also like the likes of Micmacs (2009) and before that, the rather unique Delicatessen from 1991 but this time, he’s turned to an adventure film with a young lead that’s based on the book The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, written by Reif Larsen.

The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet stars Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, Callum Keith Rennie, and Kyle Catlett as T.S. Spivet and, as these are early days, here’s that official introduction just before the trailer below:
