Talks about "The Great Gatsby" will open Cannes 2013 came more than a month. Food for thought served as the appointed date for May 15 release of French painting, exactly on the day of the start of a major European film festivals.
Baz Luhrmann's film "Moulin Rouge" opened the Cannes Film Festival in 2001.
It is expected that to introduce "The Great Gatsby" in Côte d'Azur will come Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan and rapper Jay-Z. The last time DiCaprio came to the Croisette in 2007, when he presented a documentary "The 11th Hour."
The film's director, Australian Baz Luhrmann so reacted to the news: "For all those who worked on "The Great Gatsby"- a great honor to know that the film will open the Cannes Film Festival. We are happy to return to the country and to the place that has always been close to our hearts. And not only because it is my first film "Strictly Ballroom" was shown at Cannes 21 years ago, but also because many of the bitter and beautiful lines of this outstanding novel were written nearby Saint-Raphael villa."
In the story of "The Great Gatsby" the writer Nick Carraway comes from the Midwest to New York in the spring of 1922. In pursuit of his own American dream, he settles next to the mysterious, known for his partying millionaire Jay Gatsby, and on the opposite side of the bay live his cousin Daisy and her husband Tom Buchanan, a rake and aristocrat. Nick is involved in the exciting world of the rich, their illusions, love and lies. He witnesses what is happening in this world and writes the story of impossible love, eternal dreams and the human tragedy that reflect contemporary mores.
From August 29 to September 8 public attention to the cinematic world will be riveted to the small island of Lido, where will be held the 69th Venice Film Festival. Chairman of the International Jury will be the Michael Mann director of such films as "Heat", "The Insider," "Ali" and "Public Enemies."
This year's Mostra, as they call the festival in Italy, is undergoing changes. Returned to the post of director Alberto Barbera, who headed the world's oldest film festival from 1998 to 2002. Then 8 years old Venice festival was run by Marco Mueller. During this time, Mostra become a serious competitor of Cannes: competition program has increased the number of famous names, and on the red carpet have appeared a lot of stars.
Muller often criticized in his quest to catch up and overtake the Cannes Film Festival. In particular, last year at the Lido were shown 180 films. Barber is considered too large number of paintings - "for the festival and for its infrastructure." With the latest in Venice problem: last year at the Lido, and there was no construction of a new festival palace, closed one of two five-star hotels, while the remaining Excelsior is closed for renovation in 2013.
As for movies, while this year the Venice shows three times smaller paintings. "In my opinion, reducing the number of films will be the right decision - says Barber. - All tapes will be given good attention and time they deserve. Also, it will raise the quality of the selection to a new height. "
69th year of this festival in Venice promises to be less glamorous and more temperate. Jury Chairman Michael Mann adds seriousness to the festival. American film director, screenwriter and producer for the first time will head international film festival. The guide of Venice Film Festival calls Mann "one of the most influential and representative figures of modern American cinema." By the way, last year's Venice competition participated tape daughter of Michael Mann with the movie "Fields."
There is a possibility that the jury under the direction of Mann's films will be judged of these heavyweights of cinema. Barber mentioned that at the Lido offers new movie, Paul Thomas Anderson ("Master"), Brian De Palma ("Passion") and Terrence Malick ("The Burial"). Among the competitive movies may be the representatives of Colombia, Indonesia, Burma, Costa Rica, Argentina and Thailand.
In the main competition will be shown 18 films in the section "Horizons" - and another 12 ribbons will be presented out of competition. Parallel section of the Italian cinema Contracampo Italiano Barbera eliminated. "Venice began to dump the old skin, so that in a couple of years, it has to rebirth - says Alberto Barbera. - Mostra is similar to the old lady, albeit subtle, but the need of fresh blood. I believe that the festival should be held accountable for their choices, not just to recruit dozens of movies. "
List of participants in the main competition will be known by the end of July.
When Alec Baldwin went to the scene of the hall "Lumiere" hand over the award for Best Actress, for two scrolls in the hands of an actor, it became clear that the prize is divided in half. But few thought that the jury will return both "Silver branches" of the Romanian actresses of the drama of Christian Mungiu "Dupa dealuri." Cosmin Stratan and Christina Flutur just two months ago finished shooting, and today received the award from the American star.
It turned out that the photo of theater actress Christina Flutur director saw on the internet and decided to call her in his movie, but what Kosmina some time ago and worked as a journalist was interviewing Mungiu. The girl was struck by director, and he decided to shoot her in movie.
"I am very pleased with this award, I am pleased and surprised, because my film - the longest of all the pictures of the competition. I am constantly changing the dialogue, the actress helped me a lot in this, we wanted to give the film an indissoluble, permanent character"- said Christian.
"Dupa dealuri" - the story of two friends, whose life is parted in opposite directions. Alina went to Germany and Voychita went to the monastery. Some time later, Alina gets home again to resume relations with Voychita. While ex-friend helps her with the documents, Alina lives in a monastery and just trying to impose her own rules there, forcing the nuns to resort to extreme unflattering measures. The film from the very first day of the show was among the favorites of the critics.
Taking home the award at the Cannes festival for his "Love", Michael Haneke said that the plot of the film is based on the promise, "we gave with my wife - do not throw each other in the situation shown in the film." "In today's world we are seeing is everywhere, it is a common problem. I experienced this situation in my family, it was deeply touched me and inspired the creation of this film, "- said the director.
"Yes you do, it turns out, is a romantic streak!" - Haneke told a reporter. "I do not want you to mind - the director smiled. - Journalists are constantly trying to stick labels on the filmmakers: that such an expert in the field, that - in another. For a long time, I was listed expert on violence. But as far as romance, it is rather the question not about me but about the theme of the movie. "
On the question of why American films, so lavishly presented in the competition, were without major awards (only Zaytlin Ben was awarded the "Golden Camera" for best debut film, "Wild Animals of the South"), director Alexander Payne replied: "This film festival, and we are not talking about how to reward a country. We must choose among the submitted films. Draw general conclusions on the basis of this choice is incorrect. "
Press Conference of the jury was short, but not without embarrassment. Request a Bulgarian journalist Jean-Paul Gaultier to name a film with the best costumes evoked a storm of indignation Andrea Arnold: "Why do you ask such a stupid question? Jean-Paul - a very clever man, and he loves movies. Over the past two weeks I was convinced that he was madly keen on the cinema, so it is enough to ask him about the costumes ... I'm sorry, I'm a little drunk, so I say sharply!"
"Oh, this is Andrea"- threw up his hands Moretti.
If the award of the 65th Cannes Film Festival for Best Actor goes away Aniello Arena, the star of the movie "Reality" by Matteo Garrone, the prize will receive the director himself. The actor is now in the Tuscan prison, serving a life sentence for murder.
According to British newspaper Telegraph, Arena is one of the candidates for the prize for Best Actor. In "Reality", he plays the Neapolitan fishmonger who gradually becomes obsessed with filming a reality show, Italian analogue of "House-2". I can not say that the film was very warmly received at Cannes, but the work of Aniello was marked by many journalists.
In fact, Arena is one of the murderers of the Neapolitan mafia - Camorra, which arose in the XVIII century. It is considered that the scale of the Camorra crime has no parallel in Europe. In 2006 a has been published a book by Roberto Saviano, "Gomorrah" on which Matteo Garrone shoot the same film, nominated for "foreign" "Oscar."
A native of Naples, Aniello Arena was arrested on Christmas Eve in 1991 for killing three people and sentenced to life imprisonment. He had never tried himself as an actor, but 12 years after his arrest came to the prison theater troupe Fortezza and eventually became a major star among the prisoners.
Garrone has opened Arena while watching the performance troupe in prison, "Volterra" in Tuscany. He wanted to give Aniello role in "Gomorrah," but the judges decided that the theme of the movie is too close to the real life of a prisoner and did not allow him to prove himself on the ground of cinema. "Perhaps the story of the "Reality” seemed more appropriate because it is more like a fairy tale" - says the director.
According to Mateo, Arena has developed a personal hero.
"Can you imagine this man who for 20 years is in prison, opened to the world, of which he had no idea! Aniello - a true professional - says the founder of the troupe Armando Puntso. - He is a very versatile actor and copes equally well with both drama and comedy. Recently, he played with us in the play "Gamlisa." It is a blend of "Hamlet" to "Alice in Wonderland." Will he win at Cannes or not, it is not so important. His story is in itself worthy of attention. "
For work, Arena has been released of camera in the morning, but in the evening he was obliged to return to the place of detention. As a result, his name is now mentioned along with Brad Pitt, Jean-Louis Trentiyan, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman - stars of Cannes 2012.
Interestingly, in February of this year's Berlin Film Festival won the Italian Taviani brothers movie “Caesar must die", the effect of which is developed for the staging of Shakespeare's plays in an Italian prison. All the prisoners who participated in the project, prior to their arrest were members of various mafia groups. Most of the "actors" get a life sentence. Will the work of inmates a trend in a movie, time will show.
Jubilee, the 65th Cannes Film Festival starts on May 16 and will open a picture of Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom". The film is participated in the competition along with the new creations of David Cronenberg, Thomas Vinterberg, Christian Mungiu, Sergei Loznitsa, John Hillcoat, Michael Haneke and Lee Daniels.
On the Cote d'Azur this May will be especially hot: the competition involved two films, which starred star of "Twilight." Robert Pattinson plays a major role in Cronenberg's thriller "Cosmopolis," and Kristen Stewart engaged in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road." It is terrible to imagine what will happen to the premieres of these films, as well as press conferences.
Winners of the main prize of the festival - "Golden Palm" - Cristian Mungiu, Michael Haneke, Ken Loach and Abbas Kiyarostami bring their new films in the Cannes competition. Outside of the competition shows a new picture Apitchatpona Virasetakuna "Hotel"Mekong" with Tilda Swinton. Recall that Virasetakun has gotten gold at Cannes in 2010 for his film "Uncle Bunmi, who remembers his past life," when the jury was headed by Tim Burton.
It is not known who will judge this year's main competition, but the actors and directors have to work under the direction of the Italian Nanni Moretti, winner of the "Palme d'Or" for "La stanza del figlio." Moretti admitted that he expects to see movies that will surprise him.
By the way, the star of the movie Moretti "We have a pope!" Michel Piccoli starred in the drama of Leos Carax Holy Motors, and the picture of French cinema veteran Alain Resnais “You have not seen anything yet" is also included in the program of Cannes. The film's protagonist travels Carax lives of others, including the killer, deadbeat, the chief administrator, a monstrous creature and the father of the family. In the film, Rene playwright dies, leaving after the death of the request - to collect all the actors who played his Orpheus and Eurydice in the play, and put a new version by following his advice.
A new picture of New Zealander Andrew Dominik "Casino Robbery" again unites director of westerns "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" with Brad Pitt. The actor plays a professional killer, who supervised the Mafia investigating a robbery that occurred while playing poker.

Recall that the 65th Cannes Film Festival will be held this year from 16 to 27 May.
Not only teenagers franchise movies tend to partition in half. Lars von Trier joins this trend and, according to his producer Peter Jensen Olbek will share a new picture into two parts. The main role in "Nympho" has gotten Charlotte Gainsbourg.
For the third time the actress is working with one of the most controversial directors. Gainsbourg first collaboration with von Trier, the drama "Antichrist," Charlotte brought the highest prize at the Cannes Film Festival - "Palme d'Or" for Best Actress. Then, Gainsbourg starred in "Melancholy" in supporting roles, as in "nymphomaniac," she will once again be as the first violin.
In a conversation with the publication Screen Daily producer refused to reveal the secrets of casting, but said: "We have gathered very well-known actors in this film, which proves that they appreciate the work of Lars, despite his strange words at Cannes."
Filming will begin in August this year and will be held in Germany, near Cologne. "We are doing two films - said Jensen. - A rather ambitious venture. Personally, I hope that the movie will be ready for the Cannes Film Festival 2013th. We shoot two films simultaneously and immediately installed to complete both parts simultaneously. " And here again the question arises: Why, Mr. Producer talks about Cannes, considering what a scandal broke out in connection with the careless words of Lars? Despite the apology, and he was declared persona non grata, and then sworn never to give interviews.
Peter Jensen Olbek didn’t give the answer to this question, but notes that the film company Zentropa, and it belongs to von Trier, is extremely proud of the fact that the film "The Hunt" by Thomas Vinterberg entered in the competition program at the Cannes Film Festival this year. "This proves relationship between Zentropa and the great festival" - says producer.
"Nympho" keeps track of erotic woman's life from birth to 50 years. The first part will be in childhood and adolescence, whereas the second part will focus on the adult stage. As to the manner in which the film is, then, according to Jensen, it will be a mixed style: "Something will remove in the style of "Dogma", hand-held camera, something to take off nicely, with the help of a crane and a good camera."
As mentioned earlier, von Trier will give two versions of the film - hard and relaxed, in which all the "dangerous" parts of the bodies of actors will be blurred.
Interestingly, Lars von Trier still keeps in touch with Martin Scorsese, discussing their long-conceived project, based on "Taxi Driver." Peter did not disclose details, but confirmed that directors continue to communicate.
Finally, the jury of the main contest of the 65th Cannes Film Festival is formed. It has long been known that the head of it will be Italian director Nanni Moretti, well, he will work with the British actor, actress, German, French actress, a British director, a French designer, American director, actress and Palestinian Haitian director.

Eccentric fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier is not a stranger to the world of cinema. He developed the costumes for Peter Greenaway's film "The Cook, Thief His Wife & Her Lover," for painting Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, "City of Lost Children," but the audience certainly remember his futuristic fantasy costumes for Luc Besson's "The Fifth Element."

Creative duo of brothers Hughes somehow quietly disintegrated: Albert Hughes offered to shoot, "Akira" and Allen Hughes - a political drama "Broken City" with Mark Wahlberg. However, Albert plans have changed. The director left the film version of anime and looked closely at the draft of Motor City, where the main role proposed to Chris Evans.
Departing from the project "Akira," Albert Hughes stayed with the studio Warner on good terms. Moreover, the studio assured him employment in another projects, which seems to be and the Motor City.
Chris Evans can play a small rascal, who, being substituted, gets into the jail. Coming from it, he would take revenge on his oppressors. It would seem a trivial subject. But why did the script of Chad St. John appear in the famous "Black List" of best non-released scenarios of 2009? The thing is that the protagonist of the film says only one replica. Moreover, in all scenarios there is only one replica.
In our days, to shoot a silent film in the Hollywood is a real suicide. Some time ago the Coen brothers were trying to break through a silent film about World War II, but failed, despite the consent of Brad Pitt filming at them.
But at this year's Cannes Film Festival has done a lot of noise and black and white silent film "Artist". Jean Dujardin won award for best actor, critics were ecstatic, Harvey Weinstein bought the rights to immediately release the picture in the U.S. It is possible that the script of Motor City has been taken from the shelf on the wave of interest in the film of Michel Hazanavichusa.
The film produces Joel Silver, who will not give up the ability to find future hits. Chris Evans after the release of "The First Avenger" has proved that he can make on his shoulders the entire movie, even if one-third of these pictures are narrow shoulders. But if he refuses, there are already some candidates to replace: Jeremy Renner and Joel Edgerton.
In any case, Hughes has accepted the offer to film. Work will begin in early January. Whether Evans will accept the project or not we will get to know soon.
Woody Allen's new movie "Midnight in Paris" is so well shows itself in the American box office, the studio Sony Pictures Classic has decided to extend the release to 944 theaters.
It can’t be said that the movies of Woody Allen are in great demand. In the U.S., his films have received limited release - an average of 500 copies. Of course there are exceptions. For example, the comedy "Something More" came out in 1033 theaters, but earned very little - only 3.2 million dollars. The most cash on the tape Allen's home is "Hannah and Her Sisters" - the film has collected in the U.S. 40 million.
"Midnight in Paris" was the opening film of the 64th Cannes Film Festival, where it received incredibly warm reviews from critics. Last year, Woody brought on the Croisette his tape, "You meet a tall dark stranger", but it was met coolly.
In May 20, Sony Pictures Classic has released "Midnight in Paris" in six theaters. The film almost immediately set a record for time between copies at the U.S. box office, which amounted to 99,834 dollars. For comparison: the time between a copy of "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" in the first rolling weekend amounted to 21,697 dollars. The second week of "Midnight" came in 58 cinemas in the third - at 147. And this week, 944 rooms in America will show Woody’s film.
"This is not the only one of the best films of Woody Allen - said Michael Barker of Sony Pictures Classic. - It also became the perfect alternative to big studio projects".
Studio bosses believe that the secret of "Midnight" is simple: Paris is shown in the movie just the way it was seen or want to see the audience.
In addition, Owen Wilson played the average American guy, with whom the viewer can easily associate themselves. Plus, critics praising the film, although on their voices lately rarely pay attention.
One of the highest-grossing films of Woody Allen in the last decade, is the picture "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" in the United States has collected 23.2 million dollars. Maximum number of comedy screens was 726.
"Midnight in Paris" with a budget of 30 million has already earned a worldwide box 22.6 million dollars, 7.4 million of them in America, where the film is just three and a half weeks.
At a time when the whole world actively moves to digital and 3D, to remove black-and-white and silent film can only crazy one. However, the director Michel Hazanavicius makes impression of a man who knew exactly what he was doing. The result was brilliant: "The Artist" at the last moment came in the competition program of Cannes and was very warmly received by critics.
The protagonist of "The Artist" - a silent film star George Valentine (with a mustache and smiling Jean Dujardin) - starred in and films like "Russian Romance" and "German Romance" and his faithful terrier - almost like Tintin. George plays the Musketeers, mysterious beauties wearing masks, fences, dances, seduces women, but it does not say a word. But on the yard is 1927, and film finds a voice. On this Valentine learns from the head of the studio "Film graph" Al Zimmer's (John Goodman). The actor laughs at the idea of shooting "talking" movies and directed to leave the studio, where he was waiting for the grateful fans. Among the screaming girls - the charming Pippi Miller (Berenice Bezho). She accidentally encounters with Valentin, but he immediately gets to the girl sympathetically.
Two years pass. George mired in poverty: investing all his money into the project "Tears of Love" (of course, silent), the actor went bankrupt because no one wants to watch dumb movies. At the same time, Pippi turned into a real star. Starting at the site statistics in movies Valentine, Miller quickly gained popularity. However, she did not forget who owes her new status, and come to the aid of George.
Authors of the film painstakingly researched Hollywood 20's and even came to America, have managed to show the Americans are places that are already forgotten. The story itself resembles the relationship of Greta Garbo and John Gilbert, and Dujardin and Bezho, creating their own images, guided by Douglas Fairbanks, Gloria Swanson and Joan Crawford. Hazanavicius didn’t want to achieve realistic: it was important to convey the atmosphere with which he coped brilliantly. As far as historical relics, in one scene the hero Dujardin lies on the bed in the apartment of Mary Pickford stars. In general shooting took place in American studios and in the halls.
After learning about the "The Artist", many critics were skeptical of the idea to take on the role of Hollywood stars French actors. But it must be noted that Dujardin and Bezho look great. They do not need to speak in English, so that the focus does not give out their origin. Actors have spent six months learning beat dancing and watching a lot of silent movies.
