Michel Gondry, France, 2013, AGFA, Arthouse

Eminently inventive auteur Michel Gondry (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) finds inspiration from french novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary love story starring Audrey Tautou (AMÉLIE) and Romain Duris (THE BEAT MY HEART SKIPPED). Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas. When Colin learns that his best friend Chick, a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend’s party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé (Tautou) and, before they know it, they’re dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can.
