The first images from director Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo have gone online, and they’re wonderfully surreal. The French film “follows Colin (Romain Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument, the pianocktail. He marries Chloe (Audrey 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 flowers — and the expense soon drains his funds.” While Gondry’s recent work (The Green Hornet) has lacked the visual panache of his earlier films (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), these first images from Mood Indigo indicate that he’s back into beautifully strange mode.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, and Léa Seydoux.
