Cannes Film Festival
Festival de Cannes

This thread is not about the fashion nor the celebrities. It's about the films, director and actors.
For those who are interested,The 59th Festival will take place between May 17-28, 2006. The Award Ceremony will be held on Sunday May 28th.


Vincent Cassel,yes Monica Belluci's husband, will be the Master of Ceremony. The Da Vinci code will open the festival and it will be out of competition. The second most important film; Paris, je t'aime will be premiered at Cannes too.

I just read that David Lynch's new movie Inland Empire isn't ready for the 2006 festival. I was upset when I read that and then realized that I wasn't goint to be there to see it anyway. Looking foward to the reviews of Darren Aronofsky's new movie The Fountain.

Really?That's a shame, I adore David Lynch and was it supposed to premiere at Cannes?
I was quite disappointed with the fact Da Vinci's code is opening the Festival, I was expecting some you know more of a risk, more indie perphaps. The one film I am very interested in is Paris, je t'aime because I really enjoy these kind of films of cross stories and this film is about 20 love stories.Plus, must of my fav director and actors and in this project.

I was just going to ask these forums when's the new Lynch coming out! Well, now I know better.

I heard rumours that Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette is going to be there aswell as Aki Kaurismäki's new film Laitakaupungin Valot (I have no idea what's the English title).

I think "Marie Antoinette" will probably premiere at the Berlin Film Festival but if they want some early press they should premiere it at Cannes- especially if the film is good.

Ditto, want.2B.bones, I'm really looking forward to "The Fountain" and "Paris, je t'aime." David Aronofsky needs to make more films. The trailer for "the fountain" is very enthralling and dramatic. Plus, Rachel Weisz
"Paris'" concept is very intriguing... and all the amazing actors and directors "from the city of love."

Variety reports on Cannes 2006 Program

The film trade magazine "Variety" has a long report on the status of the selection process for Cannes this year.
Highlights include:
  • "strong Hollywood presence thanks to Fox's "X-Men: The Last Stand" and Warner Bros.' 'The Fountain'"
  • "a 20-minute preview of Paramount's Oliver Stone pic 'World Trade Center'"
  • "DreamWorks returns to the fest with its latest toon, 'Over the Hedge'"
  • "Among documentaries showing in noncompeting slots, there's "Al Gore: An Inconvenient Truth" and "John Ford/John Wayne: The Filmmaker and the Legend," directed by Sam Pollard"
  • other films rumored to be shown are "actor-director John Cameron Mitchell's heavily sexual New York ensembler "Shortbus," Rolf de Heer's Aussie Aboriginal drama "Ten Canoes" and Rachid Bouchareb's "Days of Glory," a big-budgeter about North Africans who fought alongside the French in WWII."
  • "Films very likely to find slots ... are two Mexican features, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Babel," featuring Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt and Gael Garcia Bernal ... and "The Violin," by Cannes Cinefondation alum Francisco Vargas, based on his own short"
  • Other likely selections inlcude "Richard Linklater's ensembler "Fast Food Nation," with Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke ... and Guillermo del Toro Spanish-lingo horror movie 'Pan's Labyrinth'"
  • Definitely set for the competition is "Marie Antoinette," Sofia Coppola's costumer with a pop tune score based on Antonia Fraser's biography and starring Kirsten Dunst"
  • "Almodovar will bring "Volver," starring Penelope Cruz and already one of his biggest hits in Spain, for a May 19 Croisette bow"
    Ken "Loach will offer "The Wind That Shakes the Barley,"
  • "Kaurismaki will be back with "Lights at the Edge of the City," the final leg in his "unemployment trilogy," centered on a night watchman and a sexy femme in the suburbs of Helsinki"
  • "Moretti has his anti-Berlusconi comedy-drama 'The Cayman'"
  • "Bellochio will present "The Wedding Director," a Sicily-set drama"
  • "Also certain for the competition are "Climates," by Turkey's Nuri Bilge Ceylan ... and "Selon Charlie," French thesp Nicole Garcia's fifth directorial outing"
  • "'Hana,' Hirokazu Kore-eda's drama centered on a samurai plotting revenge on his father's killer, is the sole Asian title that looks likely to be headed for the competition."
  • "The Good German," Steven Soderbergh's B&W post-WWII Berlin murder mystery, with Blanchett, George Clooney and Beau Bridges, is still in post-production and will very possibly not be completed in time

Also...

Quote:
The word around Paris is that the competition is taking a more mainstream turn this year. "It's a clear strategy that, if a film is too arid, it won't get a competition slot, regardless of whom the director is," one sales agent told Daily Variety. However, that message doesn't seem strongly reflected in the selections so far, which are sending out mixed signals very typical of artistic director Thierry Fremaux's reign.

Ironically, in a year when one of Asia's most celebrated directors, Wong Kar Wai, is jury prez, the 2006 official selection looks to be Asia-light compared with recent years. "Hana," Hirokazu Kore-eda's drama centered on a samurai plotting revenge on his father's killer, is the sole Asian title that looks likely to be headed for the competition.

..............................

Traditionally, a considerable amount of juggling between sections takes place in the final weeks, and many films have still to be seen by the program committee. Fremaux also may have some real discoveries up his sleeve, though so far his selections seem to tilt toward established names and Cannes regulars.

.............................

Several titles are not ready for Cannes, including the Steven Shainberg-helmed "Fur," a biopic of '60s photog Diane Arbus, starring Nicole Kidman; Brian De Palma's "The Black Dahlia," with Josh Hartnett and Scarlett Johansson; and "Inland Empire," David Lynch's California-set mystery, with Laura Dern, Harry Dean Stanton and Jeremy Irons. A Studio Canal production.

This year there are amazing films, I must say last year it was a bit dull and there was a lack of real film stars(esp french ones).To me it looked like somekind of teen awards:Mischa,Paris,models...

Marie Antoinette loos very good,quite quirky and you don't usually expect historical movies to be quirky.
Volver is simply AMAZING, one of Almodovar´s best films.Penelope is really really good, I believe there is another Goya nomination for her.

I can't wait to see Paris,je t'aime and Babel cuase Iñarritu and Gael García did such an amazing job in Amores Perros.Want to see their work again.

I saw an extract on Berlusconi's parody and it was sharp and good,though I still need to see the rest of the film.The Good German is really really interesting,Clooney and Blanchett in a WWII crime mystery...that's good!Nicole's Fur looks good.


By the way,want.2B.bones you may be interested, is Lynch's film to be premiered here or not?Cause I read different things all the time.

^^Three stories taking place simultaneosly in Morocco,Mexico,Japan and Tunisia.The story begins with a tragedy striking a married couple(Cate and Brad) during their vacations.
Like most of Iñarritu's films it is an interconnected story and started with the idea of the Babel Tower which is old myth of when the tower of Babel was being built to reach Heaven,and God created different languagues and no one was able to understand each other and no tower was built. The languagues of the film and Spanish,English,Japanese,Arabic and Beber.
The film looks very interesting

Yes, but the Brad Pitt part kind of drags it down...

^^Depends,I think Pitt and Edward Norton were really good in "Fight Club" and the film was really good.Pitt is really good in "Snatch" too.Though his reputation is the one of a really gorgeous good looking blockbuster film star but if Iñarritu thinks he'll be alright,then he´ll be alright.

The movie was suppose to premiere at Cannes, but I've read on several different sites that the film isn't ready.
