Contest: Win Michel Gondry’s ‘Mood Indigo’ On Blu-Ray
Contest: Win Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' On Blu-Ray
No one creates worlds quite like Michel Gondry, and his latest, “Mood Indigo,” based on the book by Boris Vian, gave him plenty of material to play with. A fantastical romance, with invented pianos and vehicles, and featuring an all star cast (Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, and more), the director conjured up a story and setting like few you’ll see all year. And today, we have a couple copies of the film on Blu-ray—featuring both the director’s cut and extended version—for a few lucky readers.
A whimsical love story set in a charmingly surreal Paris, the film follows wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his “pianocktail” (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas. When Colin learns that his best friend Chick, a fellow acolyte of the philosopher JeanSol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend’s party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé and before they know it, they’re dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness strikes Chloe: a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround her with a never ending supply of fresh flowers.
