First Poster For Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ Goes Underwater

First Poster For Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' Goes Underwater

After kicking off the New Year with a brand new short film, fans of Michel Gondry won’t be waiting long for even more from the director. His latest feature film, “Mood Indigo,” is set for a spring release overseas, which means the marketing machine is gearing up.

The first poster for the film has been unveiled, and it puts the film’s stars, Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris, underwater. Based on Boris Vian‘s 1947 novel, “L’Ecume des jours,” the film tells the tale of Colin (Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument. 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. Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, Charlotte Lebon, Alain Chabat and more co-star in the movie, which looks like a charming return to the kind of whimsy Gondry made his name on.

“Mood Indigo” hasn’t yet landed a stateside distributor, but will arrive in theaters in France on April 24th (so sorry, no Cannes premiere for this one). And as the poster below reveals, theater company UGC will be unspooling images from the film on the big screen over the next couple weeks. So keep your eyes peeled, because we’re sure a trailer isn’t too far behind.

Il sera intéressant de comparer avec la première adaptation de L’Ecume des Jours de Charles Belmont en 1968, avec les tous jeunes Marie-france Pisier, Jacques Perrin et sami Frey.
Prévert en disait : "Belmont a gardé le coeur du roman, ce film est merveilleusement fait" ; Renoir : "Ce film a la grâce" ; en décembre 2011 Télérama écrit : "Une comédie solaire délicieusement surréaliste. Adapter Vian ? un tabou dont Charles Belmont est joliment venu à bout". Et en juin 2012 Michèle Vian : « La distribution est éclatante ». On peut voir photos, extraits et avis critiques sur le blog :
L'oeuvre du cinéaste Charles Belmont




So is the English-language title still "Mood Indigo" or is it back to "The Foam of Days" ("L'ecume des jours")?


Awesome, love it.
