As a longtime fan of filmmaker Michel Gondry, I've often wondered what exactly goes through the head of the man behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep. It appears it's more a question of where he came from, as evidenced by his documentary about his own life and family, The Thorn in the Heart.
Gondry's family bares all the joys and pains of being a close-knit, creative family, particularly his visionary mother, Suzette. The trailer looks sentimental, sweet, and full of the whimsical visuals that are the hallmark of Gondry. Though I love his narrative films, I'm eager to see what he does with a documentary, especially since I'm also a fan of the one he did with Dave Chappelle, Block Party.
