Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

Brief About: Mood Indigo (French: L’Écume des jours) is an upcoming French film co-written and directed by Michel Gondry and co-written and produced by Luc Bossi, starring Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou. It is an adaptation of Boris Vian’s 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream.

Synopsis: Colin has a very pleasant life: he is rich, he loves the food his cook makes (Nicolas), he loves his pianocktail (contraction of piano and cocktail, a word invented by Boris Vian) and his friend Chick.

One day while having lunch with Chick, Chick tells him that he met a girl named Alise with whom he has a common passion: the writer Jean-Sol Partre.

Colin meets Chloe at a party Chick invited him to. They fall in love, marry, but Chloe becomes ill during their honeymoon. As time passes, Chloe’s condition deteriorates while the relationship between Chick and Alise turns sour …

One quote to locate Boris Vian’s style: “What interests me is not happiness for all men, it is that for each of them. ” (Froth on the Daydream, 1947) (Source: Wikipedia)

Release Date: April 10, 2013 France
