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.

We’ve been bringing you a number of promo posters, images, and synopses from the American Film Market (AFM) over the past week, and today we’ve got a detailed synopsis for director Michel Gondry’s (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) adaptation of the novel Mood Indigo.  The French 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.

It’s a decidedly oddball narrative, but Gondry is nothing if not inventive so we’re surely in for something truly original.  Hit the jump to read the full synopsis.  Mood Indigo also stars Omar SyGad Elmaleh, and Léa Seydoux.

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.

In the French film La Délicatesse (or Delicacy), directed by David and Stéphane Foenkinos, Nathalie (Audrey Tautou) is a beautiful, happy and successful business executive who finds herself suddenly widowed after a three-year marriage to her soulmate. To cope with the loss, she buries herself and her emotions in her work, until an office co-worker named Markus (French comic star Francois Damiens) catches her attention and an unexpected relationship develops.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, French actress Audrey Tautou talked about how she was offered the role in this film, what she loved about the character, the challenge of finding the right emotional balance so that it wasn’t too melodramatic, how much fun she had working with co-star Francois Damiens, and what it was like being directed by brothers. She also talked about working with director Michel Gondry on his next film, L’écume des Jours (The Foam of the Days), a fantasy drama about a woman who suffers from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs, what attracts her to a project or role, why she hasn’t done more American films, and her surprise that Amélie still holds a place in so many people’s hearts, more than 10 years after its theatrical release. Check out what she had to say after the jump:

It has been exactly one year since we posted any Michel Gondry news and that is far too long.  Today, we have two Gondry stories for the price of one.  To start, Screen Daily reports that Omar Sy (Micmacs) has joined Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Gad Elmaleh, and Léa Seydoux in Gondry’s Mood Indigo, which is based on Boris Vian‘s 1947 novel, L’ Ecume des jours.  Per The Playlist, the French film “follows 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 flowers — and the expense soon drains his funds.  You probably would have guessed this was a Gondry project when you read “inventor of an olfactory musical instrument”.  Filming is set to begin in April.

James Napoli’s Rental of the Week – This Week: HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT (2001)

by     Posted 4 years, 324 days ago

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not movie image.jpgThis is going to be the shortest review that has yet been posted to this column.  To go too deeply into why a small French film, that came and went in its American theatrical release, is an absolute must-see would be to give away a whammy of a spoiler; and that is just not how we do things here at Collider.  So, your intrepid pseudo-journalist will now attempt to provide just the right amount of information to get you jazzed about seeing this fantastic film, while not revealing some of the corkscrew twists that are guaranteed to let loose your moorings.

For example, it is probably safe to say that the movie hinges on a smart and shocking structural conceit.  A lot of other movies that do this, famously Memento or The Usual Suspects are puzzle films: they are great and they engage intellectually but there is a coolness to them that invites detachment.  In He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (À la folie… pas du tout), director Laetitia Colombani, together with co-writer Caroline Thivel, adds a layer cake of complex emotions to the genre, and the result is a film that transcends its trickery many times over.
