Movie Info

Eminently inventive Michel Gondry finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story starring Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Coco Before Chanel) and Romain Duris (The Beat My Heart Skipped). Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays 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, The

Gondry has such an incomparable understanding of the way in which strange and unexpected sights can tickle you. What he sometimes lacks as a filmmaker is the awareness that he can tickle an audience to death.

Mood Indigo paints a depressing picture about romance but does so with fabulous, although often-exhausting, style.

"Mood Indigo" feels both overdone and undercooked - a hectic but sketchy tale of oddball romance that slides inexorably into tragedy.

It's hard not to take delight in Michel Gondry and his whooshing, bendable universe.

A mad mix of what Tex Avery, Rube Goldberg and the silent-film fantasist Georges Melies might have come up with if they'd put their feverish heads together.

Just the first 10 minutes of Michel Gondry's latest pillowcase of whimsy, "Mood Indigo," has more invention than most of the movies you'll see this year.

Some will find this romantic fantasy the uber-Michel Gondry text, indulging in all his worst tendencies. But if anything, this is like the head-in-the-clouds fantasist finally closing his beloved sketchbook and facing the rest of the world.

It's such a visual stunner you might well forget how humdrum a story it encompasses.

A never-ending truckload of clever ideas are slapped together confusingly and yet Mood Indigo is still able to unravel the drooping strings of your knitted wool innards in familiar yet welcome fashion.

Mood Indigo is unexpected, unusual and unforgettable, and Gondry is well and truly back.

Whimsy underscored by the unsettlingly weird.

August 7, 2014 Full Review Source:

Mood Indigo is an excessive, borderline-unwatchable folly, but it's hard not to admire - and even at moments, revel in - Gondry's demented enthusiasm.

High kitsch it may be but Mood Indigo is certainly a welcome antidote to the usual terminal illness melodrama.

August 1, 2014 Full Review Source: Independent

After a string of projects in America (including the masterpiece Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), French filmmaker Michel Gondry returns home to let his manic imagination run wild.

Mood Indigo showcases the visual extraordinaire's most inventive and enchanting filmmaking in a decade.

Watching Michel Gondry's new movie "Mood Indigo" is like being force-fed mounds of parfait by a gang of ice-skating mice.

There's beauty by the sackful in Mood Indigo, but it takes a good while to figure out exactly what it's meant to make us feel.

Delightfully bonkers stop-motion vacuumpunk madness comes to an abrupt halt in this mysteriously truncated version of Michel Gondry's latest romantic whimsy.

Essentially a quirky version of 'Love Story' told with all the visual gimcrackery the director can muster--which is an awful lot.

If you enjoy Gondry's brand of homemade art direction then there's plenty to delight early on, but it's all wallpaper.

Audience Reviews for Mood Indigo

'Mood Indigo'. Gondry's massive quirkfest occasionally makes you sit up and take notice, but is mostly all style and no substance. The focus is in all the wrong places.

Foggy rom/fantasy but culminates in a passionate finale.
