On Friday, actors Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris, and director Michel Gondry, spoke after the screening of their film, MOOD INDIGO.
Six things we learned:
- Re MOOD INDIGO: “It’s not a romantic-comedy, but you have to say it is, otherwise no one will come,” Audrey Tautou.
- The film is set now with another possibility of time, a combination of different times.
- It is a love story, but Gondry hoped it didn’t drown too much in details.
- Tautou drew and animated the cartoon at the end of the film. She spent the whole movie drawing it. Family helped. Was 30 seconds, at 12-24 frames per second. Michel taught Audrey perspective.
- Cheekily, Gondry’s favourite scene is Tautou’s character kissing her female friend.
- MOOD INDIGO is like a jumper says Michel, it keeps shrinking: Original cut --> festival version --> cinema release.
