In the past few years, Michel Gondry seems to have fallen away somewhat from the playful dreaminess that characterized his earlier work like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, and Be Kind Rewind.

Translated in English as Froth on the Daydream or Foam on the Daze, it’s a bittersweet, offbeat romance that sounds like a perfect fit for Gondry’s playful sensibility. Read more after the jump.
