Chinese Puzzle
Already megawatt stars in France, Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris have seen their star shine across international borders too. And together they make a pretty attractive package. While they most recently teamed for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo," the duo are perhaps best known for their ensemble dramedies with director Cédric Klapisch, "Pot Luck" and "Russian Dolls." And they've once again teamed with the filmmaker for another tale in the saga started in those movies.

Francois Ozon's “Young and Beautiful” screened at TIFF this week (we reviewed it when it premiered at Cannes), its first appearance on this side of the Atlantic: but the hardest working man in whatever-the-French-is-for-Hollywood is just days away from starting his next shoot, in keeping with his (roughly) movie-a-year schedule.

So if we were to CHROME CARROTS attempt to replicate the PERSPEX LIMO omnipresent inventiveness of TINY MOUSE IN A TINY HOUSE Michel Gondry’s latest film throughout the PIANO THAT MAKES COCKTAILS course of this review, it would SUNLIGHT IS STRING get pretty old, pretty damn RUBIK’S CUBE ORGANISER quick. So we’ll stop while we still have you, which is what we deeply wish Gondry had done. But in “Mood Indigo,” which opened the Karlovy Vary Film Festival last week, the French filmmaker's gonzo homemade aesthetic is off the leash entirely, and he shows no mercy in how much gimcrackery he thinks we can handle.

One movie that is most certainly on list of movies to see in 2013 is still without a U.S. distributor despite boasting the name of Michel Gondry in the director's chair, and a cast that includes familiar arthouse faces Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris and Omar Sy. So far, we've certainly been piqued by what we've seen -- a good serving of Gondry whimsy, combined with an adaptation of a beloved novel by Boris Vian -- and these five new clips certainly raise the stakes a bit more.

With a release date in France just weeks away, and with "Mood Indigo" looking like a return to form for Michel Gondry, we're still patiently awaiting word of any kind of stateside release. The film still needs a U.S. distributor to step up and bring it to theaters, and hopefully there will be some news soon, but until then we'll just have to look from afar at what we're missing.

To put it quite simply, Michel Gondry's upcoming "Mood Indigo" looks like the return to form many fans have been waiting for. While the director has been off pursuing various other cinematic challenges, it's been a while since we've dropped into the sort of cinematic funhouse he's put up on screen in "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind," "The Science Of Sleep" or even "Be Kind Rewind" (underrated in this writer's opinion). But "Mood Indigo" looks like an utterly charming, whimsical romance and after a gorgeous first trailer in January, a brand new, equally lovely spot has emerged.

While recent efforts like the documentary "The Thorn In The Heart," the superhero blockbuster "The Green Hornet," and indie "The We And The I" have all allowed Michel Gondry to take some detours, it's been a while since we've seen a movie that's, well, Gondry-esque. But it looks like the filmmaker is firmly back in his wheelhouse with "Mood Indigo," which debuted a gorgeous trailer about a month ago. And with its spring release overseas gearing up, some fresh promo material has arrived.

While he was responsible for one of the best films of the '00s with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," it's been a while since we really fell for something by Michel Gondry. Follow-up "The Science Of Sleep" had its charms, as did documentary "The Thorn In The Heart," but his major films like "Be Kind Rewind," "The Green Hornet" and "The We & the I" have swung between being cripplingly uneven and borderline unwatchable.

Rome Review: French Rom-Com 'Populaire' Is A Chocolate Box Movie - Pretty, Sweet, May Cause Slight Sugar Headache

The Weinstein Company secured the U.S. distribution rights to “Populaire,” the '50s-set French rom-com that premiered Out of Competition at the Rome Film Festival, back in March, and it’s easy to see why. Boasting a chic, stylized period setting, dotted with bubblegum colors, sharp tailoring and lacquered updos, the film is the kind of undemanding confection that should prove a straightforward transatlantic sell, while its insouciant French-ness adds that bit of class that perhaps its nearest recent U.S. equivalent, “Down With Love,” lacked.
