Is anyone here following the Festival? Any films in particular you're interested in?

Are you following Sylph?

Looks like the reactions on Wall Street 2 are mixed. The big hit seems to be Mike Leigh's another year and Javier Bardem's performance in Biutiful.

Seems pretty lackluster.

Here in Canada there's a lot of buzz about the apparently largely very good reviews the young Quebec film maker, Xaviar Dolans is getting (he's one of three Quebecois filmakers at the festival). Of course part of this could simply be Canada finally having something to praise about themselves :lol: but it sounds interesting (the last time Quebec had a major hit at Cannes was with the film CRAZY, which admittedly I loved and did give its filmaker, Jean-Marc Vallée, a big Hollywood contract--he just directed the pretty good The Young Victoria).

Cannes Review: Xavier Dolan's Superb Les Amours Imaginaires

The story doesn't sound ike anything new, especially in French lanuage cinema (a bisexual love triangle) but I guess people think it's really imaginatively shot.

Kind of. I was hoping someone could "lift my spirits", it all does seem rather underwhelming.

The only ones, so far, I am interested in are Leigh's and Allen's films.

Cannes 2010 has gotten harsh feedback. The movies were called underwhelming at best and most stars took a beeline off the Croisette - if they even came. Interestingly enough Berlinale 2010 was considered a huge hit in terms of quality films and overall festivities, although they also got very little star appeal this year.
