The day when > Isabelle Adjani caused a scandal on the Croisette
The film The murderous summer, directed by Jean Becker, revealed in 1983 a scorching passion between the magnetic actress Isabelle Adjani and an enchanted Alain Souchon… At that time, the actress was 28 years old, and she was already a star. She won the César for Best Actress for her performance in Possession (1981), by Andrzej Żuławski. The directors fight over it and the photographers are very intrusive. When Isabelle Adjani arrived on the Croisette for the film selected in the spring of 1983 in official competition, she played cat and mouse with the photographers… so much so that the latter went on strike and put down their cameras when she climbed the stairs. . A look back at Isabelle Adjani’s rebellion and the photographers’ strike.
And also, a rock comeback, a birthday on the big screen…
News > The great return of Elvis
The 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival begins on Tuesday May 17, 2022, with actor Vincent Lindon as president and Virginie Efira as mistress of ceremonies. One of the highly anticipated films of this festival, out of competition, is Elvis by Australian director Baz Luhrmann. It is inspired by the true story of the King and his complex relationship with his manager, Colonel Parker, played by Tom Hanks, who ruled the artist’s life with an iron fist. Without this business-savvy impresario, Elvis probably wouldn’t have had the same career… but in the 1960s, Presley feels like he made the wrong choices. He will decide to return to the essentials, to rock’n’roll, for his big comeback in 1968.
Bonuses > 75 years of Festivals
