Endlessly inventive filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian’s cult novel Froth on the Daydream to create Mood Indigo, a fantastical comedy-romance movie set in a charmingly surreal Paris.

Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou star in Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped) stars as wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his “pianocktail” (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas (Omar Sy, X-Men: Days of Future Past). Colin soon meets Chloé (Audrey Tautou, Amélie) and before they know it, they’re dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance.

Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe and to save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers.

Mood Indigo, which also stars Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey), won the 2014 César Award for production design and was nominated for two others, for original music and costumes. It received a limited theatrical roll-out to U.S. theaters in July, 2014.
