CANNES: Blog Day Three & Four: "Volver," "Shortbus," and Celebrity Encounter

by | May 21, 2006 | Comments

Senh, Tim, and Jen are over in France covering the biggest and most glamorous film festival in the world, the Cannes Film Festival. Staying true to the theme "Rotten Tomatoes Eat France," our intrepid trio is eating (and drinking) up the sights and the sounds of what the festival has to offer.

Day Three finds Jen pledging her eternal devotion to Pedro Almodovar after catching a screening of his new movie, "Volver." Tim and Senh manage to secure tickets to "Fast Food Nation" by pulling strings and calling in favors. Read Tim’s review here.

What is a film festival without celebrity encounters? Why it’s none other than former Vice President Al Gore and Julie Delpy! Our trio even manages to catch a sight of a real life princess.

What does Day Four have in store?

Jen reveals her penchant for adult cinema, or at least for John Cameron Mitchell’s new film, "Shortbus"; Tim reviews "An Inconvenient Truth," former VP Al Gore’s documentary about global warming; and Senh finds himself on a yacht.

Read up on their adventures here.
