Cannes Film Festival Line-Up

I can't deny my relentless excitement every year for the biggest Film Festival in the world. Besides being the biggest, as I said before, there's something about it so dreamful. Twelve days of everything related to the World of Cinema, from stars to marketing, from red carpet to jornalists, from glamour to acclamation, from history to regeneration of Cinema. To early morning press conferences to Midnight Screenings, it's all about one thing, Cinema recognition!

Surprise surprise - "The Tree of Life" is In Competition. Last year the surprise was for the negative, this year is positive.
Surprise of the surprise - Where's "Midnight in Paris"?? Where's Woddy Allen? Are they joking? It's not's Paris. It's France.
Unexpected - Jodie Foster will present her film, "The Beaver".
Not surprising - the ones that know the house very well...Almodóver, Lars Von Trier, Gus Van Sant, Paolo Sorrentino and more.
From Sundance, last year "Blue Valentine" got recognition, we'll see how "Martha Marcy May Marlene" is received.
It's always surprising to see the list and at the end it's always daring.

The Couple is back in Cannes, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with films to represent once again! And that's cool!
But there's always lot of interesting people in here...always waiting for Catherine Deneuve presence...
