In this fascinating documentary, one of France’s most inventive directors, Michel Gondry, sits down for a conversation - in animated form - with one of America’s leading thinkers, Noam Chomsky. Gondry’s drawings and playful questions offer an ideal gateway to some very heady topics as the famed academic and activist discusses language, philosophy, religion and much more.

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.
