Gilles Jacob the tireless

By ALI NADERZAD - April 12, 2010 (Paris) As dean of the Cannes Festival Gilles Jacob would be expected to handle stars like we handle a road well traveled. Sharp turns are cleared without effort and intersections negotiated with eyes closed. Casualness should be a given for the president of the festival since every night for almost two weeks in May he stands at the top of the Lumière theatre steps to greet the casts and directors of the Selection films. “Ah, there’s Brad and Angelina, h...

Happy Easter to all of the patrons and members. May the glory of Easter be with you all.

A movie takes 90 days to set up completely, in UpState New York. If the Stars whoI wish to appear, don't get in touch with Tony Cee Associates soon, I will have to postpone the flick.

Events winding down in Cannes

As the end of the week approaches, the Cannes Film Festival is beginning to die down. Although there are still a few competition films that have yet to be shown, it seems that the premiere of Indiana Jones was the climax of the festival. After the premiere of Jones and Changeling, company's and fans have slowly made there way back home. The French Transporation strike and the closing of the festival's market also give festival attendees a reason to rush out of Cannes. Many companies chose to lea...

Glamorous Cannes

Glamour is the “exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness” but an alternate definition is the small city on the French Rivera that becomes a satellite of Hollywood annually for two weeks in May.            By legend and experiences of many who flock here, the Festival de Cannes is the most elegant film festival in the world. The tradition of lavish everything- film stars, cars, food, shops, nightlife and hotels, brings individuals from all walks of life here annually...

Cinema de la Plage - an escape from all the movement

There are many great things about the Cannes Film Festival: the movies, the premieres, the celebrities, the parties etc. However there's one part of the festival that doesn't get as much attention as it should (even though that's most likely a good thing). It's called Cinema de la Plage, meaning Cinema of the Beach. On the Croisette, amongst Cannes' busy nightlife, is a spot where those who would like to get away from the bustling crowds can relax and watch a movie on the beach. The set up co...

Indiana Jones Not a Bust

Ever since the disastrous premiere of "The Davinci Code" at the Cannes Festival two years ago Hollywood has been afraid to let any of their other films be ripped apart by Cannes critics. Fortunately, last night, Steven Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" broke that fear, making a more successful premiere than expected.Reviews are saying that the film should be a summer hit fulfilling the expectations of Indiana Jones fans all over. Shia Leboeuf, C...

Director Olivier Weber's "Cursed for Gold" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last night on May 16th. The documentary film reveals the life of those who live in the French Amazon forest amongst the dangers of gold digging. It explains the ongoing circle, as Weber called it, of prostitution, drug trafficking, and health and environmental problems that go along with this realm. Weber speaks with those who are affected negatively by the gold digging as well as with those who do the g...

Unfortunate reviews for "Un Conte de Noel"

The first screening of Arnaud Desplechin's "Un Conte de Noel", which is entered in the Festival's competition, took place this morning at 8:30 for the press. The 2 hour and 30 minute film featured 9 actors and explored the relationship between family, illness, and medicine. As they exited, members of the press appeared fatigued and nonplussed. One journalist went as far to say it was unbelievable that he went into the movie at 8:30, and when he came out it wa...
