The 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival started with a big craze. I arrived so excited in the second week to evolve in its fame and glory. Its always a rare moment for rich and famous to get together and roll out their flamboyant possessions at the “Big Screen Kingdom” of French Riviera. I was ready to experience it like never before. This is a perfect place for the cinema world to meet to recognize go-getters, discover new talents, masterpieces, show best fashion, jewels, and glamour, while working the tapis rouge. Its all about striking camera ready precision of this “red legendary moment”. Film icons, actors and hard working show business entourage shine and sparkle catching the attention of millions of spectators while competing for the Palm D’ore trophy.
You better be on your best behavior and clean cut if you want to be swept away. Talent agents, directors, publicists, journalists, sponsors and cameras are all watching. Competition is fierce with A-list attendance and fresh talent immersion. This 67th edition should be one to remember with big names like Gilles Jacob, and Thierry Fremaux have picked up the year’s best movies, including brand new works by the Olivier Dahan, Olivier Assayas, David Cronenberg, Xavier Dolan, Michel Hazanavicious, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach among others. Particularly this year Cannes pays a special tribute to the director of Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino. As always he shakes things up. He makes you want to go to the movies. This very rock’n’roll acknowledgement includes a screening of the film on the beach followed by a party with special guests list. Do you remember feeling electroshock listening to its hilarious dialogue at the screening of this mad movie? In the Lumiere amphitheatre, each person in the audience knows the magnitude of this rare privilege of being one of the first thousand people to see these artists work.
It was a great pleasure to see Saint Laurent film. Its bizarre life story, evolved genus and masterpieces that some stars wore proudly on the Palais stairs sheathed in red carpet. Some of these films educate, tell a story where others are meant to entertain. No matter their purpose we are all affected and united by the freedom of reflection, romance, fun, history but foremost its artistry.
There is so much dazzle, elegance and emotion on every corner. Beautiful weather permits the parties, galas and events to be filled with top stars, beautiful fashion, elegance vibrant energy. This is also a great time for a spectator like me to relax by the beach, breath, enjoy delicious food, brake all the sweet rules and observe the whole big screen action from a distance. And when it all got overwhelmed I was admiring more shining beautiful stars in the sky.
