Storyline

In what Mediterranean seaside village do the biggest international stars, movie moguls, topless wannabe starlets and struggling filmmakers get together for an 11-day extravaganza of screenings, soirees, sales pitches, prestigious prizes and media feeding frenzy? The Cannes Film Festival is one-of-a-kind, the gold standard for the movie industry and the annual rendezvous on the French Riviera for everybody who's anybody as well as every nobody who wants to become somebody. This eye-opening documentary reveals the behind-the-scenes partying and plotting at one of the most memorable festivals in Cannes' storied history when titans Bob Fosse (All that Jazz), Akira Kurosawa (Kagemusha) and Peter Sellers (Being There) competed before a jury presided over by movie-legend Kirk Douglas for the prestigious Palme d'Or.
