Opens Friday, Jul 18, 2014 Synopsis: His beloved new bride falling ill after a water lily blossoms in her lung, a devoted husband dedicates his entire life to surrounding her with the fresh flowers that will keep her alive in this visually inventive romance from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry. Based on the cult novel by author Boris Vian, Mood Indigo opens to find prominent Paris bachelor Colin (Romain Duris) sharing a posh rooftop apartment with his trusted chef and lawyer Nicolas (Omar Sy). Later, Colin meets the enchanting Chloe (Audrey Tautou) at a party, and the pair fall into a magical whirlwind romance that quickly leads to marriage. But all is not well with Chloe; there is a water lily growing in her lungs, and despite her worsening condition Colin spares no expense in supplying her with fresh flowers she needs so that she can go on breathing. But despite Colin's best efforts in treating his beloved bride's unusual malady, she continues to wither away right before his unbelieving eyes.
