Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' Poster & TrailerFrench Films Michel Gondry Trailers
Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo is one of the film I've been anticipating to make it to the U.S. market. Good thing Drafthouse Films acquired it and will be releasing it in July! If it has Gondry's name + romantic theme, I am LIT.ER.ALLY all over that like peanut butter on jelly! The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is hands down one of my favorite films ever! With it's moody cinematography, innovative mis-en-scene, mind twistingly brilliant storyline, and idiosyncratic performances by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, it's no wonder why I love Gondry's unparalleled and creative vision!
Mood Indigo is an adaptation of the 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream by Boris Vian. This is a surreal and poetic tale of Colin (Romain Duris), an idealistic and inventive young man who meets Chloe (Audrey Tautou) and falls in love. Shortly after they get married, Chloe becomes diagnosed with an unusual illness cause by a flower growing in her lungs. Gondry seems to be tackling a more delicate subject of love and death which almost always will make me bawl from just a shot of someone crying alone (the fEeEeELz)! Mood Indigo seems like the ultimate tragic love story but from what I hear, it is a visual masterpiece like his other films. I simply cannot wait to see another powerfully tragic love story that embodies all of his thematic quirkiness of infectious whimsical imagery and heart-swooningly offbeat characters. Mood Indigo comes out July 18th.
