In a season where studios are spendings hundreds of millions of dollars on special effects to help tell fantastical stories, once again Michel Gondry is showing Hollywood how it's done. On a much smaller scale, and with far less cash, "Mood Indigo" presents no less an imaginative story, full with no shortage of Gondry-esque touches. And today we have some special items for Gondry fans.
Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon, "Mood Indigo" is based on the cult novel by Boris Vian and follows the the wealthy bachelor Colin, who falls headlong into a dizzy romance with Chloé. But when she succumbs to an unusual illness, one that causes a flower begins to grow in her lungs, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround her with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers. It's the perfect kind of story for Gondry to tackle, and clearly he has found his muse in Tautou who he will be working with in his next film, “Microbe et Gasoil.”
So to celebrate "Mood Indigo" and the collaboration between Gondry and Tautou, we a poster of the film signed by both the director and actress, along with a runner up prize of a one sheet signed by the actress only. How do you win?
Email us with your name, address and tell us a book you would like to see Gondry adapt and direct for Tautou to star in. Good luck!
"Mood Indigo" is now in limited release and expands this weekend in New York and Los Angeles.
Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.
