The Dreamers: Valérie Donzelli Completes Casting for “Marguerite et Julien” (aka Abandoned Truffaut Project)

30 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Valérie Donzelli, the actress-turned director who we most recently caught as a supporting player in the garishly dressed Saint Laurent, Bertrand Bonello’s stylized biopic might have found a taste for risky content as cameras are set to lense next week on her fourth feature film. The Cineuropa folks report that Donzelli has completed the casting on Marguerite et Julien, a project that François Truffaut flirted with but ultimately passed on. Completing the cast we find Aurélia Petit (The Science of Sleep), vet thesps Sami Frey and Geraldine Chaplin, reuniting with her fellow Declaration of War‘s Frédéric Pierrot and Bastien Bouillon who join the previously announced duo of Anaïs Demoustier (you can find her in Ozon’s latest, the recently acquired Cohen Media’s The New Girlfriend) and Jérémie Elkaïm (full-time collaborator with Donzelli who we also discovered in Declaration of War).

Watch trailer for Jon Stewart's directorial debut Rosewater

28 August 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The trailer for Jon Stewart's directorial debut Rosewater chronicles the struggle for freedom of the press in Iran.

Rosewater is based on the true story of journalist Maziar Bahari's detainment in an Iranian jail for more than 100 days.

Bahari is played in the biopic by Gael García Bernal (No, The Science of Sleep), with the movie dramatising the journalist's imprisonment for raising questions about Iran's 2009 presidential election.

Stewart based the screenplay for Rosewater on Bahari and Aimee Molloy's book Then They Came for Me.

The film also includes a score from Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore.

Rosewater was shot on location in Jordan during Stewart's hiatus from The Daily Show last summer.

Stewart's Rosewater opens on November 7 in the Us. »

Mood Indigo movie review: mood disrupted

1 August 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | | 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 »

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...


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 »

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 »

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, »

Trailer and poster for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo

5 July 2014 12:50 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on the cult novel by Boris Vain, the French language feature Mood Indigo sees director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind, The Science of Sleep) at his best, marrying a sweet story with his own brand of quirky, lo-fi effects. A surreal love story, it stars Audrey Tatou and Romain Duris as Chloe and Colin, a couple who fall madly and deeply in love with each other, only for the good times to come to an end when a water lilly starts growing in her lung. The trailer below is probably Gondry at his best, totally letting loose with some beautiful visuals, and Tatou and Duris display a wonderful chemistry that helps bring this quirky love story to life. »

Watch: When Romain Duris Met Andrey Tautou in Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo'

24 June 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A new clip for Michel Gondry's fantasy romance "Mood Indigo" has been released. Opening in select cinemas Friday July 18, the film was inspired by Boris Vian's cult novel and tells the story of a budding romance between Colin (Romain Duris) and Chloe (Audrey Tautou), which is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe; a flower begins to grow in her lungs. It is Gondry's seventh feature film after the likes of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "The Science of Sleep," "Been Kind Rewind" and "The We and the I," and certainly seems to play to his love of the surreal and whimsical. The scene is sweet snippet, and displays all the charm of Gondry's work. Colin approaches Chloe for the first time and asks "Have you ever been played by Duke Ellington?" It's a perfect moment, except nothing hits the mark. Check it out below: »

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

23 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | | 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 »

'Mood Indigo': Audrey Tautou bumbles around in new trailer -- Video

22 May 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

If only every illness could be treated in such a poetic way: In Michel Gondry’s upcoming film Mood Indigo, Chloe (Audrey Tautou) becomes ill on her honeymoon with Colin (Romain Duris) and can only be treated by being surrounded by flowers. We’d take that over cough syrup any day.

Mood Indigo is based on a 1947 French novel, Boris Vian’s L’Écume des Jours, that has been given the movie treatment before with films Japan’s Chloe and France’s Spray of the Day.

Although the premise may sound delightful, the story isn’t all roses — Chloe’s »

New Mood Indigo Trailer, Images, and Poster Featuring Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou

22 May 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It's been well over a year since we brought you the first trailer for writer-director Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo, but now a new Us trailer has debuted. Those of you who are familiar with Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep will recognize his unique style in the film that takes place "in a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole.”  Romain Duris stars as a young man/inventor who falls in love with the incarnation of a Duke Ellington song, played by Audrey Tautou.  When she falls ill, he must find a way to save her.  The kaleidoscopic style of the trailer alone is worth the watch, and I'm hoping the full film contains much more of the same. Also starring also stars Omar SyGad Elmaleh, and Léa Seydoux, »

First U.S. trailer for Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’, starring Audrey Tautou

22 May 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Michel Gondry is best known for films such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep. The trailer for his latest film, a fantastical romance, showcases Gondry’s trademark visual flair. The French-language film is based on novelist Boris Vian’s cult novel.

It is the surreal and poetic tale of Colin (Romain Duris), an idealistic and inventive young man, and Chloé (Audrey Tautou), a young woman who seems like the physical embodiment of the eponymous Duke Ellington tune. Their idyllic marriage is turned on its head when Chloé falls sick with a water lily growing in her lung. To pay for her medical bills in this fantasy version of Paris, Colin must go out to work in a series of increasingly absurd jobs.

The film made the rounds of film festivals last year and opens in the U.S. July 18th in limited release. Our review can be read here. »

Michel Gondry's latest, Mood Indigo, gets a domestic trailer and poster

Michel Gondry has directed quite an array of movies that utilize his unique visual style. From The Science Of Sleep to The Green Hornet, Gondry has delivered original film after original film, but Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind remains his best work, in my opinion. The combination of his dream-like visuals and a stirring love story made for one of the most memorable movie experiences of the last twenty years, if not longer. Now, it looks like he is could do it again with Mood »

Charlotte Gainsbourg On Being Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac': 'I was disturbed, embarrassed and a little humiliated...'

25 March 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg ("The Science of Sleep," "The Tree") is no stranger to working with Denmark's most famous provocateur, Lars von Trier, having starred in his "Antichrist" and "Melancholia" before playing the adult protagonist in the Danish filmmaker's latest, "Nymphomaniac." The actress appears mainly in the film's "Volume II," which is now available on VOD and will be in theaters April 4th. Though apparently entirely fearless as an actress, the first thing that's striking about meeting Gainsbourg is how timid and almost bashful she is. That said, quite a few actors seem to have chosen their profession as a way to overcome their shyness and Gainsbourg, the daughter of U.K. actress Jane Birkin and the late French singer, Serge Gainsbourg, seems to belong to that group too. For the interview in Copenhagen, during the "Nymphomaniac" press junket, she shows up with a huge pot of tea for herself »
