On the Croisette at the Festival Palace going superstar of world cinema.
Tonight opens anniversary the 70-th Cannes film festival. The most prestigious, beloved and glamorous in the world of cinema. His main competition program of 20 films, but only in different contests involving 49 paintings from 29 countries. 12 of them charged Directors-women.
Of the 20 participants competing for the “Palme d’or”, and most of them are old acquaintances and darlings of the festival, the so-called members of the “club de Cannes” recognized “cream” the highest kinoodessa . This Austrian Michael Haneke (twice winner of the “Palm trees” for his films “White rabbit” and “Love”) new film “happy ending”. And Sofia Coppola, daughter of the famous Director, for the third time arriving on the Croisette with a new work, “Fatal temptation” (a remake of the famous Clint Eastwood movie 1971). Involved in the American contest, and Todd Hines (almost obtained in the year before the main award for the film “Carol” with cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in the lead roles), and the Frenchman françois Ozon with the picture “two faced lover”. Invited to Cannes and the Russian film Director Andrey Zvyagintsev, he’s here for the third time and presents his new film “Dislike”.
The French tried to saturate jubilee program exclusively Arthouse cinema’s most respected Directors. Cinema as art, like it or not, but only Arthouse will “steer” at this year’s festival. Usually out of competitive programs on the Croisette was presented and delighted the audience with a Hollywood Studio megaprojects type “Mad Max: fury Road”, the “Pirates of the Caribbean…” or exciting cartoons like “Panda”, “Up”, “Puss in boots”.
But this time, no entertainment, facing a lot of money. Usually on the Croisette with these projects landed additional troops Hollywood stars. It is known that the festival de Cannes – the most glamorous in the world. But Arthouse Directors have long been removed Hollywood stars and in his paintings, and those, in turn, are literally lining up to these filmmakers, even if they know that their work will see a much smaller audience than the usual Hollywood movies. Prestige and reputation are now expensive.
So stars in the solar (as everyone hopes) Canne expected in abundance. Uma Thurman, President of the second of the competition “Special view”, Monica Bellucci is leading the opening and closing of the festival, Kirsten dunst, Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, the star of Sofia Coppola. Juliette Binoche and Isabelle Huppert, Gerard Depardieu, Dustin Hoffman and Adam Sandler.
