Perhaps the strangest thing in this film–which is no stranger than reality, really–is the short that is included on the DVD about kitty adoption.
I’m a huge fan of Gondry’s work. This film didn’t get the reviews that Spotless Mind did, and I like the former film a bit better, largely because Stephane turns so completely mushy, and his sympathy-o-meter drops steadily as the film progresses. Still, it is a good film, and worth watching at least twice because the man is simply so inventive. If anyone else is doing anything nearly as interesting with visual metaphor, let me know.
