Mood Indigo Reviews

The Spectator

It's a feast for the eyes. It's an all-you-can-eat buffet for the eyes. But it will not feed you otherwise. Also, there is every chance it will bring you to your knees.

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

...the French filmmaker's gonzo homemade aesthetic is off the leash entirely, and he shows no mercy in how much gimcrackery he thinks we can handle. In our case anyway, we're afraid he overestimated.

A brief moment of enchantment, where a chord is struck just perfectly, and the tone just right. However sadly such moments come too few and far between.

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.

Maybe these conceits worked in print, but on film it's seven layers of sugar-frosted whimsy that would choke Wes Anderson.

The List

There's a delicate romance buried within, but Gondry's endless stop motion tomfoolery and visual jokes prove overwhelming in all the wrong ways.

Much like Gondry's infuriating The Science Of Sleep, this has impressive animation sequences and expensive quirks but eventually proves too much to bear, leaving you feeling that your mind's turning to paté de foie gras.

Mood Indigo plays like some extreme behavioral experiment, an attempt to determine just how much whimsy, exactly, an audience can endure.

After a while, all that frivolity starts to collapse under its own weight like a fallen soufflé.

Michel Gondry bungles his adaptation of the Boris Vian novel by indulging in homespun craftwork at the expense of plot and character detail.

Inventively twee, but charmless and heartless

A surrealist pastiche that's too clever (or enthusiastic) for its own good.

There's so much of so many flavors of cleverness-a surfeit of surfeits-that sensory overload causes aesthetic suffocation.

The screen is dazzling alive but the visual gimmickry puts you at an emotional remove from the tale being told.

Imaginative to a fault, whimsical until you say uncle, "Mood Indigo" pushes director Michel Gondry's style of surreal playfulness to its breaking point.

It's a dense thatch of superficial brilliance with nothing to hold it up, like Gondry has tried to build a house that's all roof.

Sight and Sound

There are conceits aplenty, but not enough underlying substance or believable characters to render all the wild whimsy attractive or even endurable.

Film Journal International

An excessively whimsical romance that's undone by cartoonish performances and direction by Michel Gondry that practically bludgeons viewers via cutesy formal trickery.

Michel Gondry's surreal Gallic dramedy is less a visual feast than an all-you-can-eat buffet, and one that's rather hard to consume.
