New Clip From Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo
Say hello to the pianocktail

09 July 2014  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: Exclusive

Impish and imaginative, Michel Gondry is a distinctive moviemaking voice operating at a whole new pitch with his latest, Mood Indigo. One of the film’s Heath Robinson-esque joys, plucked from the pages of Boris Vian’s source novel, is the pianocktail, a musical device that conjures novel cocktails based on the timbre, tone and pitch of notes played. The pianocktail is the star of a new clip that can be viewed using our vidocktail below.

Playful and surreal, but with a melancholy tinge, Mood Indigo is a Parisian tale of one man (Romain Duris), one woman (Audrey Tautou) and a strange floral growth on a pair of lungs. Co-written by Gondry and Luc Bossi, it’s largely faithful to Froth On The Daydream, a dreamy roman à clef that’s built generations of loyal readers since it was first published in 1947.

That dreaminess translates into a often utterly bonkers Gondryland filled with helpful-yet-annoying philosophers (look out for Jean-Sol Partre), handy cooks (Omar Sy) and a hip new dance craze, the Biglemoi, that all the rubbery-legged kids will be doing.

For fans of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, The Science Of Sleep and this Metronomy video, August 1 is the date to mark.
