Michel Gondry fans are going to have a lot to be thankful for in 2013. Not only is his lo-fi indie, “The We And The I,” slated to hit theaters stateside, but his fantastical “Mood Indigo” with Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris is also on the way. But before we get to either of those, Gondry has gone ahead and dropped a holiday treat for fans.
Over on Vimeo, the director quietly unveiled the (obviously) quirky short, “Haircut Mouse.” Mostly animated, except for a brief moment where we see Gondry, dressed as a mouse, fall asleep on a bunch of hay (obviously), the three-minute piece marries crude but cute art with a tale that only the Gallic filmmaker could conjure. And yes, that’s Gondry himself on the drums with French singer/songwriter Loane manning the keyboards. Grab a coffee and watch below.
