Mood-Indigo-PosterOscar-winning writer-director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) returns to the big screen this year with Mood Indigo, an anticipated new drama with fantastical elements that has our interest piqued.

Led by the ever-brilliant Audrey Tautou (Amélie) and Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), we saw some rather weird and wonderful first official images from the film last summer. With its release date over in France now on the horizon, the first international poster has surfaced online.

The film,

“tells the tale of Colin (Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument, the pianocktail. He marries Chloe (Tautou), but unfortunately, she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with fresh flowers – an expense that soon drains his funds.”

Starring alongside Tautou and Duris will be Omar Sy, Vincent London, Gad Elmaleh, Alain Chabet, Charlotte Le Bon, Aïssa Maïga, and Philippe Torreton.

Gondry is directing from a script by Luc Bossi, who adapts the original 1947 novel, L’écume des jours, by Boris Vian.

Mood Indigo will be released in France on 24th April. Still no word yet on a UK or US release date, but we’re hoping that that will soon change. StudioCanal have the distribution rights for our shores, so fingers crossed we’ll be hearing something soon. For now, here’s the first French poster for the film. With any luck, the first trailer will soon be following.
