Gregory Leménager committed hostilities, and is satisfied to find a selection that looks like a selection of the Cannes film Festival”. The only surprise for him was the fact that “we can’t find the movie of Tarantino, you promised” for the 25 years of the palme d’or, Pulp Fiction. “once ready, it is not excluded that he is finally at Cannes,” he continued. “You are naive, seems to revel Jean-Christophe Buisson. His producer and him perhaps prefer to go to the Festival of Toronto”, which became a trial run for the Oscars.
Jean-Christophe Buisson is considered that the selection rotates round and round. “We had announced a return to the glamour and Americans, a festival of romance”, he insists. It is clear, according to him, “that there is no place for new things that come out of the theme of the world goes wrong.” He continues by considering that there are no adventure movie making travel seems to happen in this selection, to his great regret.
For his part, Gregory Leménager love the consistency of the Festival with him. “There was no reason to see Cannes imitate other festivals, for the sole purpose of attracting more of glamour”. It emphasizes the distinct identity of the selection, is advising Jean-Christophe Buisson “console themselves out of competition with the films of Claude Lelouch and Nicolas Bedos”. “Of Nicolas Bedos? No, I do not believe,” he replied, waiting to see the films presented during this 72nd edition.
