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>

Almost a Good Movie
24 April 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Cannes, the actress Alice Palmer (Greta Scacchi) wants to have her debut in the cinema industry as director and her two friends have written a screenplay to Gena Rowlands. However they are approached by the counterfeit crasher Kaz Naiman (Zack Norman) that convince them to rewrite the scrip to the famous French actress Millie Marquand (Anouk Aimée) that is in the festival; in return he would sponsor the feature with three million dollars. Millie loves the screenplay and promises to make the film. However, the powerful producer Rick Yorkin (Ron Silver) is producing a blockbuster with Tom Hanks and Simone Duvall and needs Millie Marquand and needs Millie Marquand to perform the role of Tom Hanks' mother. Millie's former husband, the director Viktor Kovner (Maximilian Schell) is in Cannes and Rick manipulates him to convince Millie to accept the part. Meanwhile the promising debutant star Blue (Jenny Gabrielle) becomes a hit in the festival but is divided between her lover and her career.

"Festival in Cannes" is almost a good movie. The idea of shooting in the backstage of the Cannes Film Festival 1999 like in a documentary is creative and interesting. However, the naiveness of the characters like Blue, Alice Palmer and Millie Marquand associated to the verbose screenplay are bothersome in the end of 100 minutes running time. Further, Maximilian Schell is awful and the ham Zack Norman is totally unconvincing. This movie was released on VHS by Paramount distributor in Brazil. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Um Festival em Cannes" ("A Festival in Cannes")
