Director Michel Gondry and actress Audrey Tautou discuss the new movie “Mood Indigo.” It’s an imaginative romance based on the novel of the same name by Boris Vian, and tells the story of Colin, a wealthy young inventor, who is looking for love. With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend, he meets, and marries, Chloe. But after their wedding, Chloe falls ill, and Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save her life. “Mood Indigo” opens at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema July 18.

In 1969, I reviewed the Grove Press translation of "Mood Indigo" for the Harvard Crimson. Here's the link. There are a few typos in the Crimson's digitized version -- should be thighs, not things, love, not live -- but your listeners will see why Boris Vian's work is unforgettable. I look forward to seeing the new film.

Please let M. Gondry and Mlle Tautou know that they can see Duke Ellington's townhouse at 333 Riverside Drive, between 105th St and 106th St, which carries the secondary--primary from my point of view--Duke Ellington Boulevard. Also, they can see the Duke Ellington House at 935 St. Nicholas Avenue (at 157th Street). http://discoverblackheritage.com/duke-ellington-house/

If there's extra time, please ask Michel if there are any updates on his adaptation of Philip K Dick's UBIK.

Is the title of the film related at all to the Duke Ellington song.
