This is the surreal and visually saturated adaptation of Vian’s “Froth On A Daydream” by Michel Gondry, which is more faithful but also more postmodern than Belmont’s 1968 version. Colin, an idealistic and inventive young man, meets and marries Chloé, under the spell of blues song “Mood Indigo” by Duke Ellington. Chloé becomes ill, due to a water lilly growing in her lung. To pay for her medical care, in a fantastical Paris, Colin must work in increasingly absurd conditions, while their apartment falls to bits around them and their circle of friends, including talented Nicolas, and Chick, a fanatic of the philosopher Jean-Sol Sartre, disintegrates.

Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry was born in Versailles, from a family immersed in the musical universe. When he was a child he wanted to be a painter or an inventor. In the end, he succeeded in both, as his visual creations are teeming with original finds. He began in the early 80s as a drummer with a pop group and then entered the world of music video production. After becoming known from his collaboration with Björk, his international career will see him collaborate with the Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, Massive Attack, Daft Punk, Kylie Minogue, Radiohead, Kanye West, Paul McCartney and many others. In 2001, he directed his first feature, “Human Nature”. His second film, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay”. Several productions will follow, all marked by this singular, poetic and often fantastic style.
