Official synopsis: The surreal and poetic tale of Colin, an idealistic and inventive young man, and Chloe, a young woman who seems like the physical embodiment of the eponymous Duke Ellington tune. Their idyllic marriage is turned on its head when Chloe falls sick with a water lily growing in her lung. To pay for her medical bills in this fantasy version of Paris, Colin must go out to work in a series of increasingly absurd jobs, while around them, their apartment disintegrates and their friends, including the talented Nicolas, and Chick - a huge fan of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre - go to pieces.
About time! Caught this at the Dublin Film Festival, second only to The Wolf Of Wall Street in my book this year. Also, the Australian Region B Blu Ray has the theatrical cut, an extended cut, and some slim but decent extras.
