Review: Mood Indigo

16 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

If one can expect anything from Michel Gondry, it is that along with the whimsy and touch of the bizarre inherent in his work is an element of truth.  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind uses erasure imagery to illustrate the pain of heartbreak. Be Kind Rewind has friendly video store employees creating their own versions of Hollywood hits for their neighborhood.  Gondry's latest film, love story Mood Indigo, however, is utterly drowning in whimsy and lacking any figment of truth.

Debonair and bearded Romain Duris (Populaire, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) stars as Colin, living off family money in a spacious Paris apartment. Audrey Tautou (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement) plays cute Chloe, whom Colin meets at a party. The plot goes something like this: guy meets girl, guy and girl fall in love and marry, flower grows in girl's lung.

There's also a B-plot, involving a friend (Gad Elmaleh, »

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 »

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.”

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, »

Axes of Fulfillment: Williams Explores the Lives of Malcontented Young Adults

There’s a certain way to make multiple, intersecting storylines breathe life into a narrative structure, though it’s a rather abused formula of narrative free form often masking the lack of substance at hand. To be certain, director Ryan Piers Williams makes better use of this structure than a variety of recent examples, giving us a quiet, simplistic approach of four interrelated early thirtysomethings in Manhattan instead of bludgeoning with caustic twists a la Paul Haggis. If the material isn’t innately virginal, Williams takes some unexpected turns (not to mention the added attraction of having his wife, actress America Ferrera starring as one of the main characters). At the end of the day, some of their stories in X/Y are stronger than others, but even throughout the more familiar tics, it’s a well-acted quartet, divided »

Trailer and poster for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo

5 July 2014 12:50 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | 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. »

Remake of Korean Thriller ‘Secret’ Finds Screenwriter

23 June 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line and Cj Entertainment are moving forward with their remake of Cj’s Korean crime thriller “Secret,” tapping Peter O’Brien (“Halo: Reach”) to write the script.

Guy Stodel is producing the pic along with Jiwon Park of Cj Entertainment.

The 2009 film, directed by Yoon Jae-goo, centers on a homicide detective in Seoul who finds incriminating evidence that may implicate his wife at a murder scene, forcing him to unravel the mystery before everyone else.

Stodel, a former exec at New Line and Paramount Vantage, has producing credits on the remake of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind.” Cj Entertainment produced “Snowpiercer,” Bong Joon-ho’s English-language debut.

O’Brien wrote the game story for “Halo: Reach” and adapted Linwood Barclay’s novel “Trust Your Eyes” for Dan Lin and Todd Phillips to produce. He also penned the Black List script “Unlocked” for Warner Bros., which »

6 June 2014 4:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Kinology is on board to co-produce and handle international sales on Antoine Bardou-Jacquet’s “Moonwalkers,” a British action comedy with Ron Perlman (“Before I Disappear”), Rupert Grint (“Harry Potter”) and Robert Sheehan (“Misfits”), produced by Georges Bermann’s Partizan.

Although he’s not able to meet Kubrick, he crosses paths with Jonny (Rupert Grint), the loser manager of a hippie rock band. Together they embark on an ill-fated mission to come up with a film.

Partizan is one of France’s most successful purveyors of high-profile commercials and music videos. »

‘Mood Indigo’ U.S. Trailer: A Surreal Love Story

23 May 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

French director Michel Gondry made a splash in the U.S. with his whimsical, fantastical take on the romantic comedy, the much-beloved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, along with his numerous celebrated music videos for artists like Beck, The White Stripes, Björk and Paul McCartney.

Gondry’s signature freewheeling surrealism and boundlessly imaginative style have earned him a cult following – and while his attempt to revive The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen used an approach which probably wouldn’t have worked no matter the director, his sensibilities proved a great fit for the Jack Black comedy Be Kind Rewind, and his Bronx teen movie The We and I was well-received (but under-seen).

Gondry returns to U.S. theaters with Mood Indigo, a surreal, love story-fantasy film based on the 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream by French author Boris Vian. Check out the U.S. trailer above.

Charming Trailer for Michel Gondry‘s Mood Indigo with Audrey Tatou

23 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Drafthouse Films has released the Us trailer for director Michel Gondry's new film, Mood Indigo. I really enjoy Gondry's work, and he's made some fantastic films in his career such as Be Kind Rewind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Green Hornet, and The Science of Sleep. He has a very unique and quirky style to the movies he makes, and Mood Indigo looks incredibly delightful. The film is a love story based on Boris Vian's novel, and it stars Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, and Omar Sy. Here's the synopsis:

Eminently inventive Michel Gondry finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story starring Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Coco Before Chanel) and Romain Duris (The Beat My Heart Skipped). Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail »

Watch Michel Gondry's Whimsically Gorgeous New Mood Indigo Trailer

23 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I don't know how he does it, but Michel Gondry has a habit of taking concepts that could either be extremely pretentious or extremely maudlin and focusing them through the lends of his creative mind to create something really damned beautiful. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is still a vital part of the modern film conversation, and even lesser praised outings like Be Kind Rewind and The Green Hornet manage to sing with Gondry's energy and quirkiness. With the latest look at his new film, Mood Indigo, it looks like he's maintained his visual game, while not losing a step with his thematic prowess. We spotted the fresh trailer on YouTube, and while it is as beautiful as it is heartwarming, it doesn't showcase the really outlandish nature of Gondry's film. Mood Indigo is the story of Colin (Roman Duris), a man who one day demands to the universe »

Audrey Tautou Stars in Us Trailer for Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo'

22 May 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

From the wild and imaginative mind of director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) comes a new romance called Mood Indigo. The first Us trailer has arrived for the French film, and this looks just as whimsical as Gondry's previous foreign entry Science of Sleep as Colin (Romain Duris) falls in love with Chloe (Audrey Tautou). There's some strange stair-climbing cars, a floating cloud vehicle and more strangeness as these two people fall in love in the most peculiar way. This truly looks original and charming, and we wouldn't expect anything less from a visionary director like Gondry. Watch! Here's the official Us trailer for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo, originally from Apple: Editor's Note: We've already featured trailers for this film before, but this one is for the Us release. Mood Indigo is directed by Michael Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) from »

Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Michel Gondry’s Fantastical Romance Film ‘Mood Indigo,’ Plus New Poster

22 May 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Real talk: Michel Gondry’s career is fascinating and also a mess that’s all over the place. And depending on who you are this is either a plus or minus. On one hand, the French filmmaker has been called a visionary on the level of Spike Jonze, but there’s an argument to be made Gondry's great films are far and few between. A lot of them have plenty of cool concepts in them and not all of them work (“Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” easily being his best). Gondry also has some clunkers like “The Green Hornet,” and even “Be Kind Rewind” is super uneven (though it has a lot of good stuff too). But fantastical, wacky and quirky is really only just one reading of Gondry’s career and doesn’t take in the full picture. Gondry’s also very big in the documentary field, »

Watch: 70 Famous Films Get Sweded In 10 Minutes

1 May 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oh hey, remember sweding? Basically, it refers to (intentionally) low-budget recreations of movies, first brought to major light in Michel Gondry's "Be Kind Rewind," though managing to take on a life of its own and arguably becoming more popular than that movie itself. Anyway, it seems the activity has been brought back to life, with a team of German moviemakers compiling all the sweding you will ever need to see in your life. Running over ten minutes long, "The Shining," "Black Swan," "The Thing," "The Godfather," "Inception" and much, much, much, much more all get the lo-fi treatment. It's basically adults doing what we all did as kids, filming it, and putting it on the Internet, because what else is YouTube for? But as a lunch break activity, you could do far worse, and let's see how many of the 70 you can name by time the video is done. »

Film Review: ‘The Love Punch’

15 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Building on the commercial proposition suggested five years ago in the late-middle-age romance “Last Chance Harvey,” writer-director Joel Hopkins once again attempts to woo the more mature cinemagoer with “The Love Punch,” a creaky heist-caper comedy that hopes to get by on sunny amiability. Reuniting with “Harvey” actress Emma Thompson, teaming here with Pierce Brosnan, Hopkins ups the stakes in terms of photogenic locations, ditching the picture-postcard London of the earlier film for Paris and the French Riviera. And with a solid cast that also includes Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall, the elements may be just seductive enough to sock targeted audiences into the ring.

Businessman Richard (Brosnan) and Kate (Thompson) are a divorced couple whom their best friends and neighbors, Jerry (Spall) and Penelope (Imrie), would love to see get back together. Richard, rebounding from his latest fling with a much younger woman, would like that, too. (“You get me, »

RoboCop Gets Another Remake... This One Created By Fans

5 March 2014 7:18 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in 2008, director Michel Gondry made the small-budget comedy Be Kind Rewind. In it, Mos Def and Jack Black have to team up to recreate a whole bunch of different movies by themselves after an accident causes all of the VHS tapes in the rental place where Mos Def works to get erased. They wind up remaking a large variety of movies, from Ghostbusters to Driving Ms. Daisy to Rush Hour 2, but perhaps the most memorable of the group was their take on Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop. Now we have a case of life imitating art, because various groups of filmmakers have come together to recreate their own micro-budget remake of RoboCop. Brought to our attention by Giant Freakin Robot, the crowd-sourced film was created by a mix of 50 amateur and professional filmmakers from Los Angeles and New York who agreed to split the 1987 action classic into parts to be remade. »

Watch: Homemade ‘Hook’ With Original Rufio

27 February 2014 10:20 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The internet is a vast landscape that would take even the most hardened of explorers a thousand lifetimes to experience its true magnitude. Luckily, unlike actual exploration, even amateurs can discover a few gems and treasures in the world of cyberspace. We’re all familiar with ‘homemade’ remakes of classic films, or ‘sweded’ versions of films, made famous by the the Michel Gondry film Be Kind Rewind. But what isn’t so common is for one of the original actors to reprise their role over two decades later.

Fortunately, Dante Basco, known to you as Rufio from Steven Spielberg’s 1991 epic Hook, isn’t above doing so. In this very accurate remake of the famous end fight scene (there’s a comparison to prove it), Basco is able to recreate all the moves and deliver his famous lines almost exactly. Warning! Spoilers for the film are included.

Michel Gondry’s Low-Budget Taxi Driver Remake

19 February 2014 12:49 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Swede: to remake a film with limited resources, cheap effects and obsolete technology, as per Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind. The idiosyncratic Frenchman put his own concept to the test with his low-budget re-imagining of Taxi Driver. Upon watching the short, screenwriter Paul Schrader had this much to say: “I always maintained Taxi Driver should never [have a] sequel or [be] remade. Michel Gondry is making me rethink this position.” With Schrader recently dismissing talk of a Lars Von Trier Taxi Driver remake, now is the time to revisit Gondry’s version. »

Didn’t Like The Robocop Remake? Try This One Instead

14 February 2014 9:39 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robocop opens in cinemas in the Us this week, a film that we do believe is actually rather good, but a crowd-sourced Robocop remake, featuring the filmmaking talents of 50 people, amateur and professional, is also doing the rounds online. This has a definite Be Kind Rewind feel about it, and well, I’ll let them tell you exactly what this is all about.

Our RoboCop Remake is a crowd-sourced film project based on the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic. Connected through various filmmaking channels (including Channel 101) we’re 50 filmmakers (amateur and professional)  from Los Angeles and New York who have split the original RoboCop into individual pieces and have remade the movie ourselves.  Not necessarily a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling. As big fans of the original RoboCop, and as filmmakers and film fans admittedly rolling our eyes at the Hollywood remake machine, we’ve elected to do this remake thing our own way. »
