Gondry displays his usual visual creativity to bring us this surreal universe where abstract is made literal, but his overstuffed narrative has absolutely no structure and it is impossible not to feel exhausted with such a distracting amount of nonsensical elements thrown in at every second.

The book "L'écume des Jours" by Boris Vian is great, but this unfortunate film adaptation is yet another example of the unbearable lightness of current French cinema. Also, Audrey Tautou may be cute, but she is a downright lousy actress. AVOID.

Great beginning and mega-dull ending. Better read the book!

Ã?trange, captivant, à (C)merveillant, poà (C)tique, romantique, drôle, intelligent, un peu n'importe quoi par moment, peut-être pas entièrement convaincant, mais sympathique avec brochette d'acteurs majestueuse. Fidel au mon survoltà (C) de Vian, à mon humble avis.

The upper half continues Gondry's surreal, kinda amusing, handicrafty style. 2nd half gets realistic but turning into noir (black & white) at the same time. Grotesque overall still. Plus, lost in translation, not easy to follow nor to be like indeed.

Oké el?ször is el kellett volna olvasni a könyvet. Másodszor pedig Boris Vian pedig abba halt bele, hogy megfilmesítették egy könyvét. Harmadszor pedig ez a film egy agymenés.

A surrealist film of a young couple facing an unusual illness. A little fantasy world full of imaginative and hilarious scenes with a lot of oldschool non-CGI special effects.

Um dos filmes mais visualmente criativos do ano.

Gondry au sommet de son art, pour un public averti comme dirait mon frère.

Uma hora de entusiasmo e alegria extrema seguida de outra de depressão e realidade brutal e branca e preta. Genial!

Prefiro ter um filho Besouro Verde do que um filho Espuma dos Dias.

What a crazy world that we see in L'écume des jours. In the beginning you think "what the hell is this?" but then you see that its part of the story and it's quite interesting too, especially Michel Gondry's way of showing it to us. This French film is sweet, romantic, weird and hard to watch as a rare health problem start to affect negatively the character's lives. The cast is amazing, the script is original and its charm catchs your attention and you have lots of fun and feel touched by the events the come up. On the other hand, this movie kinds of wears you out. In the end, you are exhausted and bored to be honest. The last part of it is a little bit longer that it should be and it hinders L'écume des jours.

This faithful adaptation of Boris Vian's celebrated novel is filled with Gondry's genius visual. Quirky, funny and touching.

L'écume des jours n'est pas un film facile, son esthétisme débridé, qui dans la deuxième partie glisse vers le film de genre/science-fiction/noir, surprendra sans doute un public non préparé, mais charmera immanquablement les autres qui voudront le revoir afin de découvrir toutes les subtilités qui leur auraient échappé.

J'admire l'originalité visuelle du film, le jeu d'acteur et la poésie du scénario. Le film démarre fort mais ne parvient pas à tenir la route pendant deux heures. La fin est assommante et ennuyeuse.

Surréaliste, décalé et décadent
