Ingrid at Cannes ...

After the Awards Season, the Film Festival circuit gets underway... I like the new Cannes Film Festival poster for this year, following their previous years' tributes to Monica Vitti in L'AVVENTURA, Faye Dunaway in PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD, Marilyn Monroe, and Marcello Mastroianni in FELLINI 8½ last year (see them at the labels on them), its Ingrid Bergman this year, a radiant shot from her Rossellini years, which seems entirely appropriate. 

Lets hope the festival throws up some more unmissables like AMOUR or BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR or UNCLE BOONMEE ... 
Gaspar Noe's LOVE may be this year's sensation ....?  Todd Haynes's CAROL finally sees the light of day, from Patricia Highsmith, featuring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara,, and Catherine Denueve, busier than ever, features in the opening film, a gritty drama LA TETE HAUTE (STANDING TALL) by Emmanuelle Bercot - a change from last year's farce GRACE OF MONACO then! ("Deneuve adds punch to delinquent drama" says today's "Times").,Last year's Olivier Assayas's CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA with Juliette Binoche, should be a must-see too, it is finally just opening here in UK this week!. A good year for actresses at Cannes then .. there is also that new MACBETH with Fassbender and Cotillard,and that new Tom Hardy MAD MAX reboot which is getting rave notices; and we will be interested in Sorrentino's latest (after THE GREAT BEAUTY), YOUTH (even if it does feature Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel).
