Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mood Indigo paints a depressing picture about romance but does so with fabulous, although often-exhausting, style."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"A mad mix of what Tex Avery, Rube Goldberg and the silent-film fantasist Georges Melies might have come up with if they'd put their feverish heads together."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"It's such a visual stunner you might well forget how humdrum a story it encompasses."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"Whimsy underscored by the unsettlingly weird."
‑ John Serba,
"After a string of projects in America (including the masterpiece Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), French filmmaker Michel Gondry returns home to let his manic imagination run wild."
‑ Rich Cline,
""Mood Indigo" feels both overdone and undercooked - a hectic but sketchy tale of oddball romance that slides inexorably into tragedy."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Just the first 10 minutes of Michel Gondry's latest pillowcase of whimsy, "Mood Indigo," has more invention than most of the movies you'll see this year."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A never-ending truckload of clever ideas are slapped together confusingly and yet Mood Indigo is still able to unravel the drooping strings of your knitted wool innards in familiar yet welcome fashion."
‑ Chris Sawin,
"Mood Indigo is an excessive, borderline-unwatchable folly, but it's hard not to admire - and even at moments, revel in - Gondry's demented enthusiasm."
‑ Jonathan Romney, Observer [UK]
"Mood Indigo showcases the visual extraordinaire's most inventive and enchanting filmmaking in a decade."
‑ Shawn Hazelett, Under the Radar
"It's hard not to take delight in Michel Gondry and his whooshing, bendable universe."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A droll, demented and slightly depressive tale of doomed love."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Mood Indigo is unexpected, unusual and unforgettable, and Gondry is well and truly back."
‑ Jayne Nelson, SFX Magazine
"High kitsch it may be but Mood Indigo is certainly a welcome antidote to the usual terminal illness melodrama."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Watching Michel Gondry's new movie "Mood Indigo" is like being force-fed mounds of parfait by a gang of ice-skating mice."
‑ Jeff Baker, Oregonian
