Microbe and Gasoline clip

The U.S. rollout of Microbe & Gasoline has been approaching so quietly, you’d be forgiven for not realizing Michel Gondry had a new film at all. But he does, and it’s coming to our shores this weekend, and based on the footage we’ve seen so far it looks pretty damn adorable.

Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet play Daniel and Théo, or as they are better known, Microbe and Gasoline. They’re teenagers in a Parisian suburb who feel like total outcasts until they find each other and become fast friends. Soon enough, the boys hatch a plan to run away from home in a ramshackle car constructed out of junk to look like a tiny cottage. Audrey Tautou also stars, as Microbe’s mother. If you dig Gondry’s sweet, offbeat style, this looks like one worth checking out. Check out a new Microbe and Gasoline clip below.  Read More »

Microbe and Gasoline trailer

Microbe and Gasoline is the name of the new film from Michel Gondry, and two of those three words are also more or less the names of the main characters. Microbe is the introvert; Gasoline, the one in the red jacket, is the outgoing new kid in school. They form a fast friendship, and avoid their families over the summer by building their own car — so this is a road movie, Michel Gondry style.
