Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?

de Michel Gondry

Synopsis

What buds from an encounter between a filmmaker with an uncontrollable imagination and a genius of contemporary philosophy? The answer can be found in Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?, a long interview Michel Gondry had with Noam Chomsky. With his shoddy English and his charming animations, the Frenchman comments on the discourse of the author of the Global Village and gives it a visual dimension.
