Re­spect­ing the code of Cannes

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

We have no news of what’s play­ing at this year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val. Why men­tion this non-fact? Well, fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Thierry Fré­maux has been forced to de­clare that a “leaked” draft of this year’s pro­gramme is in fact a work of fic­tion.

The list, which ap­peared on the grandly ti­tled Blog du Fes­ti­val de Cannes, in­cludes few films that have not al­ready been men­tioned in ev­ery spec­u­la­tive me­dia story con­cern­ing this year’s event, such as the lat­est movies by David Cro­nen­berg and Ter­rence Mal­ick.

“The se­lec­tion is in my head,” Fré­maux said. “It’s dis­gust­ing to play with such a thing. There is a code of con­duct for Cannes and it must be re­spected. Those who don’t re­spect the code, will never come back to Cannes.” The real list will come our way on April 19th.
