MOOD INDIGO is Michel Gondry’s love story about a woman suffering from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.
The surreal and poetic tale of Colin, an idealistic and inventive young man and Chloé, a young woman who seems like the physical embodiment of the eponymous Duke Ellington tune. Their idyllic marriage is turned on its head when Chloé falls sick with a water lily growing in her lung. To pay for her medical bills in this fantasy version of Paris, Colin must go out to work in a series of increasingly absurd jobs, while around them, their apartment disintegrates and their friends, including the talented Nicolas, and Chick – a huge fan of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre – go to pieces.
