Its non-competition Cannes placement was confirmed just yesterday, and ParisMatch (via ThePlaylist) have now provided our first look at Michel Gondry‘s mysterious, bound-to-be-strange youth comedy The We and the I. But, much as we know little about this project and the true content of its plot, this image of two unknowns comes off as pretty minor, too.
The French auteur has already indicated that his film centers on “high school students on the bus home on the last day of the school year,” with that story serving as the skeleton for “a sort of study of group dynamics and the evolution of relationships as the bus gradually becomes emptier.” (It was once indicated this would actually follow “a group of school kids who travel into the future by mistake and discover a machine that keeps people younger,” but that could be entirely absent by now. Oh, Gondry!) For now, enjoy this quick peek and hope the word out of France next month is positive.
