Trailer of the day. L'ECUME DES JOURS / bande-annonce. By Michel Gondry.

Synopsis : L'histoire surréelle et poétique d'un jeune homme idéaliste et inventif, Colin, qui rencontre Chloé, une jeune femme semblant être l'incarnation d'un blues de Duke Ellington. Leur mariage idyllique tourne à l'amertume quand Chloé tombe malade d'un nénuphar qui grandit dans son poumon. Pour payer ses soins, dans un Paris fantasmatique, Colin doit travailler dans des conditions de plus en plus absurdes, pendant qu'autour d'eux leur appartement se dégrade et que leur groupe d'amis, dont le talentueux Nicolas, et Chick, fanatique du philosophe Jean-Sol Partre, se délite.

Un film de Michel Gondry avec Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Philippe Torreton, Alain Chabat, Charlotte Le Bon et Aïssa Maïga.

Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris fall in love, marry, and endure a most unusual illness in Michel Gondry‘s first French-language feature Mood Indigo (L’écume des jours), which will test the critical cache that’s been slipping since Gondry followed his Oscar-winning 2004 pic Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind with The Science Of Sleep (US$15M globally) and Be Kind Rewind (US$30.5M). Adapted from Boris Vian’s 1947 novel, Mood Indigo follows on the heels of Gondry’s most recent studio effort, 2011′s modestly performing tentpole Green Hornet. The pic opens in France on April 24 via StudioCanal but has yet to set Australian distribution.
Synopsis: From the director of ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND comes a magical love story that stood the test of time. Adapted from Boris Vian’s cult international bestseller.
In a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole, Colin, a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants to fall in love. With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend Chick, he meets Chloe, the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune. But soon after their wedding, Chloe falls ill. She has a water lily growing in her chest. Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save his beloved’s life…

Installation of the week. PAGAN.

PAGAN from Romain Tardy (AntiVJ) on Vimeo.

Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic") is a blanket term, typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous. It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. [Wikipedia]
This installation, shown on the main facade of the Museum of archaeology of Toulouse, south of France, was inspired by a scultpure of a bacchanalian head from the 3rd century (see picture below). This sculpture had been found at the end of the 17th century and exhibited as an example of an antique pagan idol since then.
Using the idea of polymorphism that is a feature of the ancient gods, the head becomes almost invisible when integrated to the structure made of an abstract network of straight lines. The light will reveal several patterns, from abstract constellations to enigmatic symbols that will affect the rest of the building.
This work is a new collaboration with the musician Squeaky lobster.
