"Paris je t’aime": divorce, French-style


Legal proceedings are again creating a cloud over Cannes this year. The Chinese film “Summer Palace” by Lou Ye is being held up by the Chinese censorship authorities, although the festival has vowed to screen the film anyway.

Meawhile, French producer Emmanuel Benbihy has asked for a court injunction to block “Paris, je t’aime”, a series of Paris-based shorts directed by Gus Van Sant and Gurinder Chadha amongst others. Contributions from film-makers Raphael Nadjari and Christoffer Boe were cut. This led Benbihy to complain it was not the film he engaged to co-produce. It is set to screen on Thursday evening – if the courts allow it.
