Storyline

Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, wealthy bachelor Colin spends his time developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas. When Colin learns that his best friend Chick, a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend's party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloe and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe; a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers. Written by Production

the triumph of fantasy
13 September 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I read the book first,and after a few months I saw the movie. what I liked best in the book was in the movie too: the fun,the love of life,the music,the mockery about Sartre,the criticism towards religion. And Gondry added his touch: the visual effects are great,without CGI. Another funny thing is presenting the mouse as a nice animal,so we can appreciate how he helps the characters and how they like him. Maybe the illness part is a bit too long,but as I told to a friend,Illness and death are a part of life,Arne't they? I also liked a lot the technology shown in 1946 Paris,as if we could see the works for the Halles area and the underground lines passing . There are some cruelties in the movie,but I think they're justified by the tone of fable. Great actors too,very well assorted.
