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.

All People prefer Blond(e)s … and Sun, Sex and Fun in May (be it in Cannes, Paris or … Kabul)

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 ?

#Avengers and #Cannes Movie #Stars in #France, now. #Normal (Hard)Working Men and Women too.

Many French people enjoy a May Day off, or even another 4-day week-end “à la française”. Cinema lovers may have decided to go to Cannes with a view to see or meet global stars at the “Festival”. Some normal people #InRealLife just work in Paris.
