*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When i saw the DVD of A history of violence, i found with this little featurette (it last only 9 minutes) and i found it really interesting, because i always enjoy see the DVD extras with behind the scenes footage about how a movie was made, what the Cast and crew's opinions and how they made some of the key scenes in the movie. But almost never show to the people some footage about the premiers or (like in this case) the behind the scenes of the premiers of this film in a festival so prestigious like Cannes, and interesting things like the comments of David Cronenberg (A director with a long history in this festival) and how he was not sure of screen this movie there because he feel it too commercial. Of course, another interested things are the press conference, the check of sound and image before the screening and of course some footage took inside the theater when the lights were turned up after the screening and the standing ovation. If you can, see it, it just 9 minutes.
