Festival de Cannes

The Tree of Life, a stirring film by writer-director Terrence Malick, has done just what every Cannes film aspires to do – create a buzz that has the entire film world talking. The Tree Of Life – Malick’s fifth film in a career that spans four decades – will debut in the United States May 27, although it’s hard to judge what the reaction will be, as the press screening found emphatic boos from some and energetic applause from others. Due to the mixed reaction, The Tree of Life has everyone at Cannes and around the film world focused on the work, and stars have stepped out to voice their opinions.

As long as the company is good, the drinks are plentiful, and the talent is here, I am enjoying it, but then again, doesn’t that sound superficial? Film festivals are more than just an event, they are a melting pot of ideas, some, of which are translated into art that we see on display, or at least, we used to.

This will be our 7th year at Cannes and judging by the line-up this year, I expect a lot of glamor and exclusive parties. Fingers crossed.
