Video Fix: Trailer for Mood Indigo

Get ready for some Audrey Tautou adorableness, like it’s the 90s all over again. The Wes Anderson of French cinema, director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) has correctly cast her in his fanciful new flick, Mood Indigo, about a fetching, carefree woman with a big heart who meets and dates the perfect man. They do cute things like ride around on fluffy white clouds until things turn sour, when a blot on her lung turns out to be a flower (a water lily, if you must know) and she becomes gravely ill. Based on the 1947 book Froth on the Daydream, by Boris Vian, it’s the latest example of Gondry’s insistence on punishing people who have it all.
