Strange and fascinating to look at. I didn't find the plot or characters compelling, but it was visually engaging and often delightful.

Someone had a dream and decided "this doesn't make any sense and is disturbing and sad, but I can make movie out of it anyway"?

Even though film is a visual medium, many viewers still seem very attached to narrative. And often directors with a strong visual style (Wes Anderson, for example) are criticized for over designing their films, which is rather absurd. French director Michel Gondry, who started out making videos for Bjork and Daft Punk, is one of the most visually creative and whimsically surreal filmmakers working, but this doesn't seem to be enough for audiences. His latest, "Mood Indigo," made little impact when it was released in 2013, even though it's his most visually stunning film since "The Science of Sleep." Perhaps it will find a second life on DVD. On the surface it's a charming love story between Audrey "Amelie" Tautou (charming) and Romain Duris, but it's also a full throttle exercise in lo-fi fx and flights of fancy. Even if it's not perfectly plotted, the acting is great and there is always something interesting to look at. The title comes from a Duke Ellington song, but it's based on a book by Boris Vian called "Froth on the Daydream." This 2-disc set includes both a theatrical and an extended cut.
