MOOD INDIGO (French: L'Écume des jours) is an upcoming French fantastical film directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, The Green Hornet), starring Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou. The screenplay was written by Luc Bossi and Gondry, based on the 1947 novel “Froth on the Daydream” by Boris Vian.
