This film closes on Thursday, August 14th.
An adaptation of the 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream written by the remarkable polymath Boris Vian, Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo is a characteristically tender story of devotion and despair.
Meeting at a lavish party where they instantly hit it off, Romain Duris’ Colin and Audrey Tautou’s Chloé are soon inseparable and, following an idyllic courtship and fairly shambolic wedding proposal at an ice rink, are then married. However, what seems like the couple’s happy ending soon fades away as Chloé becomes ill on their honeymoon and Colin desperately struggles to provide her with relief, a source of expense which bankrupts the once wealthy and ebullient couple.
Replete with spellbinding visual effects, Mood Indigo is a uniquely told story of love and downfall which creatively evokes an epic struggle against the drastic effects of serious disease. (Notes by Alice Butler.)
