Flying mostly under the radar, Michel Gondry‘s “Microbe And Gasoline” is yet another very budget endeavor for the filmmaker who always manages to find new ways to repurpose cardboard. While the phrase Gondry-esque is perhaps thrown around too often, this latest is one you truly can’t imagine coming from anybody else.
Ange Dargent and Théophile Bacquet lead the movie (which also has an appearance by Gondry’s “Mood Indigo” star Audrey Tautou) in the tale of Microbe and Diesel, two pals who decide that summer with their respective families won’t be any fun. Instead, they build their own wacky car and hit the highway for an adventure that takes them across France.
The film opens in France on July 8th. There’s no U.S. distribution yet, so no word on if/when it might land here. Watch below. Update 6/19: Trailer with English subtitles added.
