L’ecume des Jours, based on the 1974 novel by Boris Vian, literally screams for Gondry’s unique storytelling ability, obsession with in-camera effects and strange but endearing visuals. Colin is a rich man and inventor of the pianocktail, a brilliant “olfactory-musical” instrument that plays both to the ears and the nose. When he meets Chloe, they are immediately wed and live in a world of happiness until she develops a water lily in her lung. A rare occurrence, the only way to treat it is to surround the affected with flowers, a feat which eventually breaks Colin’s bank.
