Storyline

Cannes, 1999. Alice, an actress, wants to direct an indie picture. Kaz, a talkative (and maybe bogus) deal maker, promises $3 million if she'll use Millie, an aging French star. But, Rick, a big producer, needs Millie for a small part in a fall movie or he loses his star, Tom Hanks. Is Kaz for real? Can Rick sweet-talk Alice and sabotage Kaz to keep Millie from taking that deal? Millie consults with Victor, her ex, about which picture to make, Rick needs money, an ingenue named Blue is discovered, Kaz hits on Victor's new love, and Rick's factotum connects with Blue. Knives go in various backs. Wheels spin. Which deals - and pairings - will be consummated? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Absolutely worth seeing
4 March 2002 | by asdalinSee all my reviews

I saw Festival in Cannes this evening in my film class and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was far from a documentary (as was posted earlier), but rather an interesting insight into some of the things that can go on at this, or any other festival. The characters were fun to watch and to follow through their few days in Cannes. I found the film interesting and the end was extremely satisfying -- it all made sense. It was beautifully shot and made me wish I could see Cannes in person. Of course it showed how people can be wooed with simple words, but it showed so much more than that. The cast was superb. If you enjoy movies, see this one. It was a treat.
