Mood Indigo DVD Review

Director: Michel Gondry

Cast: Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga, Charlotte Le Bon

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 94 minutes

Wow! I’m still scratching my head as to how I can articulate Mood Indigo in a way that neither discourages you from the experience nor encourages you enough to take the plunge into a fantastical world of stop motion animation, digital special effects and mechanical effects. In a nutshell, Mood Indigo is like The Wizard Of Oz met the Monty Python comedy group somewhere on the yellow brick road and decided to rewrite ‘Wolly Winker and the Focolate Chactory’ with Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Gondry’s adaption of Boris Vian’s cult novel ‘L’Ecume des Jours’ is an exhaustive tale filled with tant d’indulgence, that it struggles to deliver a tone and tempo that allows the viewer to find

DVD Review – Mood Indigo (2013)

Mood Indigo (French: L’écume des jours), 2013.

Directed by Michel Gondry.

Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon.

Synopsis :

A Paris-set romantic comedy that slowly fades into a tragic drama.

The opening 45 minutes of Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo, almost exactly half of the movie, are deliriously happy. That’s when Colin (Romain Duris) and Chloe (Audrey Tautou) meet-cute, court and eventually wed (where they must compete in a box car race around the church for the ceremony to go ahead). It’s breathless, childlike fun; all ice-skating rinks and jumping on beds. The camera’s bright, primary colours reflect that.

Diaries are read on Rubik’s Cubes. Colin, our lead, has just invented a pianocktail (a musical instrument that adds a different ingredient to a cocktail with each note played). A talking mouse lives behind his bathroom mirror. The dialogue

Review: Mood Indigo

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,

Movie Review – Mood Indigo (2013)

Mood Indigo (French: L’écume des jours), 2013

Directed by Michel Gondry.

Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon.

Synopsis:

Wealthy, inventive bachelor Colin endeavors to find a cure for his lover Chloe after she’s diagnosed with an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.

I can honestly say I’ve never seen a film quite like Mood Indigo before. I’d be lying if I said everything I saw made sense, or if I could articulate what was happening and why, but director Michel Gondry has a truly unique style and it’s one I am certainly in favour of, but would not wish to see anyone else attempt it.

The plot is straightforward (to a degree) as Colin and Chloe, two hip Parisians, meet, fall in love, get married, and then Chloe is diagnosed with a disease,

Michel Gondry and Audrey Tautou in conversation on Mood Indigo

Michel Gondry had a Tin Drum moment on the red carpet for his Mood Indigo*, starring Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris with Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon. Boris Vian transformed into Günter Grass with a Volker Schlöndorff image stuck in and out of Gondry's head ending up in Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy? An Animated Conversation With Noam Chomsky and out of a faucet in Mood Indigo. Tautou and Duris walked the red carpet in 2013 at The Paris Theatre - she for Claude Miller's Thérèse Desqueyroux and he for Régis Roinsard's Populaire.

Mood Indigo Clip Has Romain Duris Meeting Audrey Tautou Pre Flower In Lungs

Michel Gondry is something of an enigma in the film world, and one who reportedly found himself in an uncomfortable position during and after The Green Hornet. His latest, Mood Indigo, is hitting in limited release on July 18th, and its the film to see this summer, if you get the chance.

Returning to the wonder of his beginnings (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), and taking a lot of notes from the past thirty years of French cinema, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet (and, borrows his favorite leading lady), Gondry’s lastest looks like it could easily be one of the year’s best.

Check out the new clip below, which expands on their meeting, which is hinted at in the trailer above.

Gff 2014: Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ is ambitious, unrestrained and utterly transportive

Mood Indigo

Directed by Michel Gondry

Written by Michel Gondry and Luc Bossi

France/Belgium, 2013

Adapted from Boris Vian’s cult novel, commonly translated as Froth on the Daydream, Michel Gondry’s latest film is a riotous, whimsical journey with a lot more to say than initially meets the eye. The opening sequence threatens to drown you in a cavalcade of offbeat animation and special effects, including a stop motion eel, an insect-like doorbell, a TV chef who passes ingredients through the screen and a miniature man dressed up like a mouse. Gondry’s indulgence throws down the gauntlet right away – either you’re in or you’re out. Mood Indigo can be bewildering, exasperating, infuriating, but, then again, it can be utterly transportive.

It stars Romain Duris as Colin, a wealthy bachelor who lives in a luxurious Parisian apartment with his cook/lawyer/intellectual guide Nicolas (Omar Sy). He

The First Trailer for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo with Audrey Tautou

  • HeyUGuys
Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns behind the camera to bring us Mood Indigo this spring, another fantastical drama that we can’t wait to see.

Led by Audrey Tautou (Amélie) and Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), the first poster for the film debuted earlier in the month. And after a handful of weird and wonderful first images late last year, the underwater setting of the first poster confirmed that this is going to be another great and playful picture from Gondry.

And with its April release in France approaching, the first international trailer has debuted online, and it is brilliant.

Courtesy of Google Translate, the synopsis in English looks a little something like this, with a few tweaks from myself to make it a little more comprehensible:

First Poster For Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

We told you nearly two years ago that outstanding Audrey Tautou will appear in Oscar-winning Michel Gondry’s next big movie. Last summer some surreal images also popped out, but it was impossible to understand what the movie is about by browsing the photos alone.

Now the first poster for the new drama Mood Indigo with fantastical elements has been unveiled, and it puts the film’s stars, Tautou and Romain Duruis, underwater.

Mood Indigo is based upon Boris Vian‘s 1947 novel ‘L’Écume des Jours’ (Froth on the Daydream) which tells the story of the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument who marries a woman, who develops an illness that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers — an expense that soon drains his funds.

Penned by Luc Bossi, the ideal Gondry project also stars Omar Sy, Vincent London, Gad Elmaleh, Alain Chabet, Charlotte Le Bon, Aïssa Maïga,

First Poster for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo with Audrey Tautou

  • HeyUGuys
Oscar-winning writer-director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns to the big screen this year with Mood Indigo, an anticipated new drama with fantastical elements that has our interest piqued.

Led by the ever-brilliant Audrey Tautou (Amélie) and Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), we saw some rather weird and wonderful first official images from the film last summer. With its release date over in France now on the horizon, the first international poster has surfaced online.

The film,

“tells the tale of Colin (Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument, the pianocktail. He marries Chloe (Tautou), but unfortunately, she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with fresh flowers – an expense that soon drains his funds.”

First Look At Michel Gondry’s Quirky ‘Moon Indigo’ Starring Audrey Tautou

Michel Gondry (Science Of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) is currently working on Moon Indigo and does appear to be one of those classic ‘love or hate’ film makers. He undeniably sits on the edge of surreal and, for me, charmingly mingling between reality and dreams to invent all manners of new worlds. His new film is based on the 1947 novel L’Ecume des Jours (Froth on the Daydream) by Boris Vian from 1947. It stars Audrey Tautou as Chloë, a lady who marries an inventor but on their honeymoon fall ills after a water lily gets into her lungs….stay with me…and the only way to treat her is to surround her with flowers.

Take a look at these vividly visual images:

Moon Indigo doesn’t currently have a release date and also stars Omar Sy, Jamel Debbouze, Romain Duris, Gad Elmaleh, Alain Chabat and Aïssa Maïga.
