Trailer: This lady is why Michel Gondry is so bizarre

Posted on


In The Thorn in the Heart (L’Epine dans le Coeur), we meet the secret behind French filmmaker Michel Gondry’s bizarre worldview: His bizarre schoolteacher aunt, Suzette. As you’ll see in the trailer after the jump, Suzette really can make her students partially invisible — it wasn’t just an editing trick in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind! France is CRAZY. She is a magical muse indeed, though her powers may have also produced nervous breakdowns and a world of pain for her son, Jean-Yves. This seems like a fascinating home-visit of the weirdest family ever. The film debuted at Cannes and enters limited release April 2. Trailer below…


I love the little boy and girl at 1:05 — their faces say “Yes, Suzette, we are starting to think like you. It is really happening!”

What do you think, P-Dubs — worth a “trip”?
