Audrey Tautou Stars in US Trailer for Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo'
From the wild and imaginative mind of director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) comes a new romance called Mood Indigo. The first US trailer has arrived for the French film, and this looks just as whimsical as Gondry's previous foreign entry Science of Sleep as Colin (Romain Duris) falls in love with Chloe (Audrey Tautou). There's some strange stair-climbing cars, a floating cloud vehicle and more strangeness as these two people fall in love in the most peculiar way. This truly looks original and charming, and we wouldn't expect anything less from a visionary director like Gondry. Watch!
Here's the official US trailer for Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo, originally from Apple:
Mood Indigo is directed by Michael Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) from a script he wrote with Boris Vian and Luc Bossi. 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 (Romain Duris), a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants love. With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend Chick, he meets Chloe (Audrey Tautou), the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune. But after their wedding, Chloe falls ill. Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save his beloved’s life. Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy and Aissa Maiga also star in the film which Drafthouse Films releases in limited theaters on July 18th.
I was lured by the trailer but I am sad to say one of the few films I have ever walked out of. Loved Eternal Sunshine but this was too much, way too much, style and no substance.

Sad to hear the previous commenter's experience, although it does seem like it's too much style for its own good and the story looks like a cliché whimsical romance. On the other hand the fact that it's based on a Boris Vian story leaves room for a little hope, because he's a brillant, underrated author of the early last century.

It must be hard for Gondry to have his first major motion picture be his opus. Every film he will ever make will be judged against ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND. // This looked pretty solid.
