From all neighborhoods attracts crowds of onlookers, they shoot invitation cards and sometimes successfully. Everywhere human traffic, and to get in the right place you have to go a quarter round. Interest in the festival has added a visit to Cannes Steven Spielberg. Saturday morning hosted the first screening of his movie “the BFG” (“The big giant”). This is a great movie for little girls – the beautiful and the good, about true friendship with not-so-great giant who is ready to defend his brethren from the giant-sized evil and malevolent. A respectable crowd gathered for the premiere, slightly bored, sluggish to react. Little girls in its ranks was not observed, so appreciate this gentle picture was basically no one. The revival came only closer to the finale, when the main character got into the house of the Queen of England. There for lunch and was invited eared giant. It took a Grand: a giant covered table, seated on a piano instead of a chair. He first tasted these delicious dishes. And it all started with the fact that this Gulliver, was nearly fried the little girl Sophie in the pan.

Spielberg has long calmed down, not trying to impress sverhodarennym. It is only in this life have achieved. But to make such a Grand and clear children’s film with great stunts and magic today very few people can.

The daughter of johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, who works in the jury of the competition, Lily-rose Depp played Isadora Duncan in the film “Dancer”. The picture involved in the program “Special look” and will compete with “the Apprentice” by Kirill Serebrennikov. She looks a lot like their parents. A career is just beginning.

The shock was Saturday and for Korean filmmakers. Participates in the competition film “the Maid” Prka Chan-wook, who became famous after the success of “Oldboy”. His new film is based on a lesbian historical novel and very bizarre treats Korean and Japanese mentality. Not all of it will delight. Suffice it to recall the recent case of the film “About love” Anna Melikyan, in which you hear the Korean song, which is issued for Japanese. Because of this, the film imposed a veto on the territory of South Korea. And recently for several hours at a scientific conference discussed how this could happen.

This year’s festival decided to justify your serial number 69, for which he has called the Kama Sutra. Here, neither the film, forbidden love, attraction to girls, posing boys, Nude in seemingly inappropriate places, as it was in the German competition film “Toni Erdmann”.

South Korea presented on Saturday and the picture of the “Road to Busan”, where a train to this lovely city (which is one of the world’s best film festivals), occupied by monsters, sucking the blood of the passengers and workers of the composition. Koreans are big on side of thrillers and horror movies. As a present you could get a smallish box with name of movie. It – and food, first aid kit, a one way ticket and something related to vampires. Says so on the packaging. Vampire antidote turned out to be the most common cotton swab with pointy end. Apparently they are designed for disposal of blood-suckers. The food is candy. And for the first aid kit “meets” patch.
