CINEUROPA'S GUEST IN CANNES – ACTION

user
« It’s an odd place where to show films which are not sure of a theatre release to people who are not sure to go and see them, but the oddest of this thing, with Cannes, is the result of all this effervescence: to give the desire to see films, the desire to make films, the desire to love film. »Gilles Jacob« Cannes is the cinema: glamour and rigour, silly and serious, sexual and cerebral, excessive and refined, art and business, the ridiculous and the sublime.

Catherine Deneuve Master Class: Magnifique!

user
One of the first lessons Catherine Deneuve has to impart is perhaps every aspiring actor’s route: going to the cinema at a very early age and embracing the sound and images of film as if it were a second skin.
