Not Rated | | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
Wealthy, inventive bachelor Colin endeavors to find a cure for his lover Chloe after she's diagnosed with an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.
The name of the writer with whom Chick is obsessed, "Jean-Sol Partre," is a spoonerism for the name of one of France's most famous philosophers and authors, Jean-Paul Sartre.
If we screw this moment, we try the next. And if we fail the next... we have our whole lives to get it right.
When Nicolas brings breakfast to Chloé and Colin the first time, the long shot from the back of the bedroom shows him entering the bedroom but there are no people up on the bed. The close shot from the end of the bed shows Chloé and Colin receiving the tray.
A shorter version than the 135 minutes original cut has been released in some countries, included France. This alternate version is 36 minutes shorter, and has been edited by Tariq Anwar and supervised by Michel Gondry.
