The Concierge at the Carlton hotel, where the first days of the festival lived woody Allen, carefully wrote the correspondent of “MK” his room number.

And it was on his romance Café Society (in our translation – “the high life”) to the opening night gathered all the light cinema. It to attend this premiere on the legendary red carpet of the festival have passed all the stars who came here. And he himself, it turns out, does not interested to evaluate the films colleagues. To see them while legally it is possible only here, on the Cote d’azur, and to imagine that woody is able to watch them any other way (for example, download from the Internet), it is very difficult. However, Allen made it clear that it refers to the Cannes festival without any piety: “I don’t believe in competition among films. Competition is good in sports… the Jury may award the best film, but to me it seems deadly dull, or someone will find boring my film. It’s all very subjective,” said he at the opening.

Yes, and those of his colleagues, who in such statements were not seen, also, according to “MK”, slowly leaving. There are only those who in the coming days plan to visit not associated with the festival of the secular parties.
