While Michel Gondry‘s “Microbe And Gasoline” seems like the kind of movie that would’ve been a shoe-in for the Cannes Film Festival, the completed picture, slated to open in France this summer, wound up screening in the marketplace. And given some of the buzz I heard, it seems a shame considering that the word is that it’s return to form for Gondry. And as we await news on U.S. distribution, the first set of stills have been revealed for the picture.
Ange Dargent and Théophile Bacquet lead the movie that follows two teenagers who build a car, and take a road trip across France. Here’s the official blurb via Film Divider that accompanied the movie on the sales floor on the Croisette:
So check out the images below, but first you can hear a selection of the score for film’s opening credits by Jean-Claude Vannier on this France Musique podcast. It starts around the 57-minute mark. More from the film is likely to come soon with the international release on the horizon, so keep your eyes and ears open.
