'Mood Indigo' is due for UK cinematic release on August 1st 2014.
Of course, fate has been explored in the movies before, and Happenstance methodically moves its irreverent players around like pawns on a chess board.
We get a peek at a collective bunch of free-spirits: twentysomething store clerk Irene (Audrey Tautou from Amelie) who is told that she'll meet her soulmate thanks to a horoscopic hunch, a tempermental waiter (European singing sensation Faudel), a recently employed museum security guard (Eric Feldman), a philandering husband, a bar-hopping patron, and a slew of subway riders who all experience the happenstance in question.
Colin (Romain Duris) is a rich inventor living in fantasy Paris who has focused his career on advancing his latest machine, the pianocktail; a piano that can also make cocktails for the thirsty instrumentalist.
But his sights are soon turned away when he discovers that his best friend Chick is in love with a woman called Alise.
