In the end, we don't see enough of Cannes and maybe too much of Kaz. But you have to accept or reject Jaglom as you might a walk on the Croisette, taking the bitter with the sweet.
July 12, 2002
A picture as charmingly insubstantial as the world it invokes.
April 25, 2002
At its best ... Festival in Cannes bubbles with the excitement of the festival in Cannes.
April 12, 2002
One of [Jaglom's] better efforts -- a wry and sometime bitter movie about love.
April 5, 2002
Jaglom has never been required viewing, but he has never been this trivial, either.
March 29, 2002
The locale ... remains far more interesting than the story at hand.
March 29, 2002
Jaglom makes some deft connections between personal and businesslike forms of seduction.
March 29, 2002
A rambling ensemble piece with loosely connected characters and plots that never quite gel.
March 22, 2002
Offers a wonderfully entertaining look at the veterans, neophytes, phonies, truth seekers, profiteers and artists who populate the movie industry.
March 22, 2002
Like most of Jaglom's films, some of it is honestly affecting, but more of it seems contrived and secondhand.
March 21, 2002
Does just fine until it collapses into the equivalent of a group hug down the stretch.
March 21, 2002
It isn't a good movie, but it is diverting, a showcase for Anouk Aimee, Greta Scacchi and Ron Silver, and a peephole on behind-the-scenes moves.
March 15, 2002
Jaunty fun, with its celeb-strewn backdrop well used.

Daffy, engrossing, enlightening and entertaining.
March 9, 2002
This isn't a terrible film by any means, but it's also far from being a realized work.
March 8, 2002
You've got the most percussive navel-gazer in independent film bringing together such type-A personalities as Zack Norman and Ron Silver, and then having them toot their trombones at each other for the better part of 90 minutes.
March 8, 2002
It's quite an achievement to set and shoot a movie at the Cannes Film Festival and yet fail to capture its visual appeal or its atmosphere.
March 8, 2002
A giddy comic fantasy, full of romance, chicanery and beguiling, sophisticated players.
March 7, 2002
If Festival in Cannes nails hard- boiled Hollywood argot with a bracingly nasty accuracy, much about the film, including some of its casting, is frustratingly unconvincing.
March 5, 2002
It thankfully goes easy on the reel/real world dichotomy that [Jaglom] pursued with such enervating determination in Venice/Venice.
