Our first look at director Michel Gondry’s upcoming film Mood Indigo in motion has surfaced online by way of a French trailer.  The film stars Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou and takes place “in a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole.”  Duris plays a young man/inventor who falls in love with the incarnation of a Duke Ellington song (Tautou).  When the women falls ill (a water lily is growing in her chest), the man must find a way to save her life.  The film looks sufficiently whimsical and absolutely gorgeous, and as a huge fan of Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I can’t wait to see this new love story unfold.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Mood Indigo also stars Omar SyGad Elmaleh, and Léa Seydoux.

Here’s the official synopsis for Mood Indigo:

From the director of ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND comes a magical love story that stood the test of time.  Adapted from Boris Vian’s cult international bestseller.

In a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole, Colin, a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants to fall in love.  With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend Chick, he meets Chloe, the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune.  But soon after their wedding, Chloe falls ill.  She has a water lily growing in her chest.  Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save his beloved’s life…
