It could have been worse in #Cannes this year

OK, weather was a disaster at the Festival this year, the stars and parties were disappointing, journalists and people were … as usual and the “Palme” was again awarded to a boring sad love story with Trintignant*. But it could have been like 1968 …

* : the 1966 “Palme d’or” was awarded to “Un homme et une femme“, Lelouch’s famous cha-ba-da-ba-da love story with Anouk Aimée and the then young Jean-Louis Trintignant who stars in Haneke’s “L’Amour”, which was awarded the 2012 palm. The 1966 jury seems to have decided, that Dr Jivago was lucky enough with its bonanza of Oscars but as the French film lacked the revolutionnary “grandeur” of Jivago, they shared the palm with an Italian, forgotten, comedy … As regards the 2012 jury, it could have been worse … maybe.

#Amour et #Haneke, toujours l’Amour et Haneke à #Cannes … : That’s All, Folks !

Some like the sun more hot than the stars in Cannes, the people more glamorous than oldschool politicians in France and the film more fun than real life in the world. But nobody desserved the 2012 Palme d’Or more than Haneke, that’s all, folks.

The Red Carpet of Cannes is Over (and wet), Vive the Dry, Red Clay of Roland Garros Paris !

The “bad” news is, the weather was quite rainy on the red carpet this year and the Festival de Cannes is already over without a … French winner. The good news is, sun is expected for the next French show to go on, on red clay at Roland Garros, Paris.

Normal Business as Usual in Paris, Cannes, Afghanistan and the rest of the world ?

Here comes the sun in Paris, Cannes and most places deserving to be mentionned in the rest of the world (at ecowar) : everything is getting back to normal, summer will soon be here to stay a while and it will be business as usual in France.

Glamour, toujours Glamour under the French Sun at the Festival de Cannes

The French have their own good taste, they call it … normal. The believe, for instance, that solar electricity must be overpaid and subsidized with the other hand. As long as Frenchonomics work and create sustainable jobs under French sun …

Change … Climate Change ! How Do You Do !

Bond, James Bond, not snail, climate snail, was expected to be the star in Cannes as Brad Pitt’s haircut and other people’s movies are … like the climate in France these days. The good news is, that there is plenty of  wet Martini. Shaken, not stirred.

Back to #Normal (in #Europe, #facebook, #Markets, #G8, Camp David, World #Space …) ?

Facebook stays at IPO pricing $38 (meaning investors value the company over $ 100 billion), G8 leaders drop their tie for an informal dinner at Camp David and a US (private) spaceship should fly in space again. Maybe the world is going back to normal ?
