Boris Vian’s surreal romantic fantasy Froth on the Daydream was tailor-made for director Michel Gondry, whose richly visualized adaptation bursts with joie de vivre. Wealthy, carefree bachelor Colin (Romain Duris) is swept off his feet by Chloé (the delightful Audrey Tautou), but when she falls ill on their honeymoon, it is discovered that the young woman has an unusual medical condition - a flower growing in her lungs. In French with English subtitles.
