An adaptation of Boris Vian’s 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream, Mood Indigo follows the love story of Colin and Chloe alongside that of their mutual friends’ Chick and Alise. Fictitious terminology and play-on-words add an imaginative touch to the plot, which Gondry’s echoes in his visual style.
Following illness and tragedy, the aesthetic of the film evolves from colorful and whimsical to monochromatic and dark as the film progresses. As Colin’s wealth and Chloe’s health slip away, violence, despair, and decay enter the world of the characters. Starring Audrey Tatou, Mood Indigo is one of Gondry’s more recent films.
