Festival De Cannes

Kicking start the blog only days after Cannes film festival, it is just a shame that we were not able to mingle on the red carpet and rub shoulders, not with independant film makers, but it appears, the rest of Hollywood and associated PR agencies who sought to use the festival as a 'platform' to plug the lastest Disney movie.

All things aside, Cannes has brought a wide genre of films to the spotlight of us who can only gaze at the television screeen over the 12-day fiesta on the French Riviera, but as Romanian film '4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days' by Cristina Mungiu scooped the Pal'me D'Or (the Golden Palm) we can only look forward to its general release.

But still, until then, there is always the ever growing catalogue of DVDs, it is only a question of whether we have the time to watch them all. Building up like a collection CDs, it is always nice to look back at old DVDs, especially when considering the inclimate weather the south east of England is currently experiencing.... um.... 12 days on the French Riviera does seem very appealing..
