Directed by Michel Gondry

Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aissa Maiga, and Charlotte Le Bon

Synopsis: Visionary filmmaker Michel Gondry presents this trippy romantic fantasy in which Colin (Romain Durais), a rich young bachelor and inventor of the pianocktail–yes, a piano that whips up cocktails based on the mood of the music that it is playing–whose unexpected romance with his dream girl (Audrey Tautou) is thrown into turmoil when she is stricken with a mysterious disease that has left her with a flower growing in her lungs. Nominated for three Cesar awards, this also features appearances from popular French actors Gad Elmaleh and Omar Sy.

What the Critics Are Saying:
“”Mood Indigo” perfectly balances Gondry’s ornamental creativity and the verité storytelling of his more recent work, combining refined style and raw emotion into one devastating, beautiful package.”
–Todd Gilchrist, The Wrap

“There is much to ponder over in this film that sits off the reality chart, allowing the imagination to soar and take flight through Gondry’s fabulous vision.”
–Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
