You Must Check Out Gondry’s New Trailer

I know it’s in French, but visually the trailer for Michel Gondry‘s new movie is worth watching. The picture, to be released in April in France and in the U.S. shortly thereafter, is called “Moon Indigo.” Based on the 1947 novel “L’Ecume des Jours,” by Boris Vian, the film tells the story of a wealthy young inventor of an olfactory-musical instrument (the pianocktail) whose wife develops an illness that can only be treated by surrounding her with flowers. Yep, it doesn’t get much more Gondry than that. The film stars Romain Duris (“The Beat That My Heart Skipped”) and Audrey Tautou (“Amelia”) as the predictably adorable leads. The only non-French thing is the Lumineers’ “Hey Ho” playing in the background — because even in France, “Hey Ho” must be used in all trailers and advertisements.
