Mood Indigo Much Shorter for International Markets

Michel Gondry's Film Lacks 36 Mins Outside France

L'écume des jours is a novel by French author Boris Vian and was published in 1946. The love story is quite surreal and told with artful detail which led to the book being a cult success in the 60's/70's. Now, it got its film adaptation under the direction of Michel Gondry. Obviously, the film isn't so easy to sell since it has not yet been picked up by a US distributor. It was shown on some festivals and is good to go in several other markets but apart from France, they all get a significantly different viewing experience.

The film's duration of 135 minutes is one aspect that critics concentrated on. It may be required by the book but mostly doesn't sit well with the audience. Outside of France, Mood Indigo will only get a theatrical version that is 36 minutes shorter. According to Australian distributor Vendetta Films, this move makes the film a much looser adaptation of the novel.

We'll have to wait and see what the DVD/Blu-ray will bring to the table once the film finished its theatrical run in some of the markets it already got sold to. Maybe the longer version will hit home video outside of France, as well.
