Movie Info

Welcome to the sun-and-star-drenched shores of Cannes, France, where movie stars and wannabes, power brokers and voyeurs, hedonists and hopefuls, the glamorous and the infamous, come once a year on an obsessive quest: be it for the perfect role, the sweetest deal or quite simply love. Looking at three love stories - and three generations - "Festival in Cannes" reveals the sometimes glamorous, often duplicitous world of the haves and have-nots of the international movie business.

  • Aug 18, 2010
    A behind-the-scenes look at the madness that is Cannes, the film follows several people who are in town to make the deal that will keep their careers afloat. There is an actress, turned script writer (Gretchen Scachi) trying to sell her script. There is the aging actress (Anouk Aimee) who hasn't had a leading role in some time. There is her ex-husband (Maximilian Schell), a director who hasn't helmed a film in almost as long, in town with his Italian starlet girlfriend. And a big-budget Hollywood producer (Ron Silver) who has been tasked with signing the aging actress to a bit part in order to land the big names that will carry the film. In the process, old lovers reunite, players get played, and new lovers find one another. Given the insincerity of everyone's shtick, one has to wonder which of these pairings are destined to survive the week. The film is awash with familiar faces, and some not so familiar. It appears to have been shot during an actual week of the famous Cannes Film Festival, and derives a certain authenticity from that. A very well-done, entertaining piece that may not bring world peace, but it does manage to keep one chuckling for a little over an hour and a half.
