We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer... looks like the film has various international release dates, but no US as of now?Here is a summary of the film:
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...
