It has been relatively quiet on the Cannes front – if you choose to overlook the 25,000 people attending Mipim (see other report). But the deadline for the Cannes festival is moving ahead at a steady pace. This year’s mainstream star looks for the moment like being “Ocean’s 13” by Steven Soderbergh.
Personally, I’m looking forward to Marco Risi’s “Maradona, La Mano de Dios/Maradona, God’s Hand”. “What impressed me about Maradona’s life has always been his dark side,” Risi told Italy’s Repubblica. “So 40% of the story covers his joys and 60% the tunnel into which, at a certain point, his life entered.” Sounds promising!
