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 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.

New character posters have dropped for the movie, centering on leads Audrey Tautou, Omar Sy and Gad Elmaleh. Based on Boris Vian's 1947 novel, "L'Ecume des jours," the film tells the tale of Colin (played by Romain Duris), the wealthy inventor of an olfactory musical instrument. He marries Chloe (Tautou), but unfortunately she falls ill during their honeymoon thanks to a water lily that enters her lung, and the only way to treat the ailment is to surround her with fresh flowers -- an expense that soon drains his funds. It's a perfect tale for Gondry's sensibilities, and we hope he's knocked it out of the park.

"Mood Indigo" opens in France on April 24th. No stateside date or distributor just yet, but here's hoping we don't have to wait too long.
