With a new, approved-by-the-director edit hitting New York and Los Angeles on July 18th, courtesy of Drafthouse Films, have a look at this clip from Michel Gondry’s “Mood Indigo.” Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris headline the French-language romance as two whimsical types whose love life is interrupted when she discovers a water lily has begun growing in her lungs.
The peek is short but sweet — “a bit quick,” as its female lead would say — and briefly hints at some of the old energy its imaginative director has arguably been missing in recent efforts. Judging by this, another provided clip, and its three César nominations, there’s reason to hope the “Eternal Sunshine” director is on a good track again. Reviews so far are divisive, but promising.
