I was at the Cannes film festival in 2003, I was making a documentary myslef but unfortunatly, after a drinking binge, some low life broke into our appartment, whilst we slept, and stole my Camera, along with all my footage. I was gutted and after being granted only temporary accreditation, 3 days, I soon realized that I was at the most famous film festival in the world and I could not get in to see any films.
However one day we investigated the film market, where I happend upon the troma stall, with severed heads dangling form the cielling and a short jewish man shouting to a crowd of people to meet tomorow for the annual Troma march, it was Lloyd Kaufman, I recognized him because a friend of mine is a Troma fan, but I was not.
However he was the only guy there who had time for us, we explained the robbery and the nightmare we were having, he went out back and came back with "all the love you Cannes" on DVD. He gave it to me for free and said this is what I made.
After watching it, and being at the festival myself, I can tell you that this is honest and real. You can see the frustrations of being a small time film company battling against the big guys, like warner bros. You can see the troma team attacking themselves and it feels like the whole thing will fall appart, but you also feel that next year they will be back again to fight on.
All the love you Cannes is funny ,informative, and very dramatic at times. Its rough around the edges but at least its honest, which is hard to come by. Ive got my tickets for Cannes 2004 (round 2) hope to see Troma there too.
