Mood Indigo (L’écume des jours) is the new film by acclaimed director and music video genius, Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Starring Audrey Tautou (Amelie), Omar Sy (The Untouchables) and Romain Duris, this visual fest is based on the famous novel Froth on the Daydream by Boris Vian. It tells the surrealist story of a Parisian love story between Colin and Chloe. The romance is suddenly disturbed when Chloe discovers she suffers from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.
As one can expect with Michel Gondry, the music plays an importantrole throughout the film. The soundtrack features an original, corky score by long time Oui Oui band mate Etienne Charry, jazz classics such as Take The “A” Train, Chlo-E, The Mood to be Wooed by Duke Ellington, the soul-funk classic Lowdown by Boz Scaggs and the beautiful Spring by LA-based singer Mia Doi Todd.
From IndieWire, March 15, 2013:
Back in 2007, Michel Gondry directed the video for Paul McCartney’s “Dance Tonight,” and it appears that the two have now collaborated again with the McCartney having reportedly done some work as a guest musician on the score for the director’s upcoming “Mood Indigo.”
According to French site RTL, McCartney came in and played bass on at least two instrumental tracks for the film, and if that’s the case then we imagine the label will have a much easier time moving copies of the soundtrack than they would have before. The score itself is by Gondry’s former Oui Oui bandmate, Étienne Charry, and it will also feature a song by popular French chanteuse France Gall.
This will be the second soundtrack of 2013 that McCartney will have contributed original music to, the other of course being Dave Grohl’s Sundance documentary “Sound City” on which the former Beatle performed alongside Grohl and Krist Novoslic on the track “Cut Me Some Slack.” No word yet on when the complete “Mood Indigo” soundtrack will drop or what else it might feature. The movie opens this spring in France and Belgium on April 24th, but is without a stateside distributor as of yet.
From VICE, July 26, 2014 – interview with directory Michel Gondry and actress Audrey Tautou:
Michel Gondry: […] And there is this one thing that no one ever knows, is that Paul McCartney plays on the soundtrack. He plays a bass in the score, in half of the tracks.
Michel Gondry: You don’t care. Nobody cares.
VICE: Nobody cares?
Michel Gondry: I mean. You seem so unimpressed right now.
Michel Gondry: If you were to say that to me right now I’d be like, “WHAT THE FUCK?!!” And you are just like, ‘oh.’ I was hoping I would impress him, Audrey. I’m sorry you’re not—I’m sad you’re not impressed by this thing I’m very proud of.
