Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: #34. Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo

Mood Indigo

Director: Michel Gondry
Writer(s): Luc Bossi
Producer(s): Luc Bossi
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Audrey Tautou, Omar Sy, Romain Duris, Gad Elmaleh, Alain Chabat

The last time Gondry made something noteworthy in the film realm it was 2006’s The Science of Sleep – and coincidentally, from purely from a concept point of view, the world created in Boris Vian’s L’écume des jours / Mood Indigo might be terrific terrain for Gondry to work his mad-hatter manners into a film narrative. Headling are the trio of Audrey Tautou, Omar Sy and Romain Duris.

Gist: A woman suffers from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.

Release Date: Studicanal gives the film a French theatrical release in the month of April, so will the Cannes Film Festival show this out of comp for international critics? We think yes.
