In an early announcement to retailers, Drafthouse Films is readying 'Mood Indigo' for Blu-ray on November 11.
Endlessly inventive filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) finds inspiration from French novelist Boris Vian's cult novel Froth on the Daydream to create this visionary, whimsical love story set in a charmingly surreal Paris, starring César winner Audrey Tautou and César nominee Romain Duris. 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 (Omar Sy). When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher JeanSol 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. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe: a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a neverending supply of fresh flowers.
The 2-disc Blu-ray set will feature both the extended and director's cuts of the film with 1080p video, lossless audio, and supplements include Director's Cut and Extended Cut of the film, Behind-the-scenes featurette: "Inside the Mind of Michel Gondry", Featurettes on set creation, costumes, book to film, Deleted scenes, 36-page booklet, and Theatrical trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.93.
