...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.

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.

February 24, 2014

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.

The Sunday Age

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

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

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

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.

Sy, Maiga and the others play second fiddle not only to the leads but especially to the visual effects, which are indeed impressive, even if quite a few are reminiscent of Gondry's previous films or musicvids.

As gorgeous as anything you'll see this year, but emotionally unengaging.

An experience that's at once emotionally potent and visually delightful.

Everything wilts, but not Michel Gondry's talents as an imaginative, inimitable, and incisive storyteller.

Director Michel Gondry's impressive technical skill and flair proves to be a beautiful match for this tragedy-tinged love story.

"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.

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

Filled with visually arresting invention in virtually every frame, the film draws us into its bizarre, surreal world with humour and zest

A frothy, dreamlike romantic fantasy spiced by a constant cascade of surprising visual sparks.

As a straightforward narrative with conventional satisfactions, Mood Indigo misses the mark, but as an evoker of so many moods, it's transportive.

This over-eager approach will grow tiresome for many viewers but, in its defense, an overload of hand-made creativity feels a lot healthier than watching endless CGI or CGI + 3D assault one's retinas.

Mood Indigo is wild, gorgeous and exhausting. It's the most picturesque nonsense you'll see this year.

Michel Gondry's latest movie must be the most Michel Gondry movie I've ever seen Michel Gondry make.
