As usual, Michel Gondry is mixing it up. After dropping the documentary “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky” and the fantastical “Mood Indigo,” the filmmaker is going lo-fi again, with filming started on “Microbe et Gasoil.” And embracing the age in which everything is shared all the time, he’s allowed the first behind-the-scenes pics from the film to be posted via Instagram.
While the movie features Audrey Tautou in a role (not pictured), the rest of the cast are new faces. The movie tells the story of two teenagers who escape everyday drudgery by building a car and traveling across the France. A road trip movie from the brain of Gondry? Sounds good to us. And if these pics are anything to go by, it looks like a pretty modest production all around.
