New clip from Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo arrives online

StudioCanal have just released their first clip from Michel Gondry's (The Science Of Sleep) Mood Indigo featuring the utterly bonkers and delightfully inventive pianocktail.

Impish and imaginative, Michel Gondry is a distinctive moviemaking voice operating at a whole new pitch with his latest. One of the film's Heath Robinson-esque joys, plucked straight from the pages of Boris Vian's source novel, is the pianocktail, a musical device that conjures novel cocktails based on the timbre, tone and pitch of notes played.

Playful and surreal, but with an edge of melancholy, Mood Indigo is a Parisian tale of one man (Romain Duris), one woman (Audrey Tautou) and a strange floral growth on a pair of lungs. Co-written by Gondry and Luc Bossi, it's largely faithful to Froth On The Daydream, a dreamy roman à clef that's built generations of loyal readers since it was first published in 1947.

That dreaminess translates into a fantastical Gondryland filled with helpful, yet annoying philosophers (look out for Jean-Sol Partre), handy cooks (Omar Sy) and a hip new dance craze, the Biglemoi.

Mood Indigo is set for release 1 August.
