As usual, proceedings didn’t get underway until an hour’s wait when the boos from photographers were embellished with gasps from the front row where...

Berlinale 2007: It's a Wrap

The opening film La Vie En...

How Glam Is Cannes?

It’s a funny place, Cannes. One minute, it’s a quiet-ish, seaside town, full of spotty boys on noisy mopeds. The next, legions of colorful individuals descend en masse, transforming it into a bizarre bazaar of film festivities. But is it glamorous? As per actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, it’s the most glamorous event an actress can attend. But beware. Arriving more than a day beforehand, and staying longer than the festival run, is one sure way to dispel any illusions of glamour. The restaur...

Cannes Hits Its Stride
