Détour, Lost Tricycle Takes an Indirect Route Home in a Michel Gondry Film Shot Entirely on an iPhone

In the short, wonderfully surreal Michel Gondry film “Détour“, a little pink tricycle belonging to a little girl going on holiday, falls off the back of the car much to her chagrin. Unbeknownst to the girl, a series of coincidences help the tricycle in its attempt to be reunited with its beloved human. The 10 minute film was shot entirely on an iPhone.
