Cannes International Film Festival 2010

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Countries that were represented in the competition for the Golden Palm for the best feature film (including co-production countries, gold colored Thailand)

The 63rd Cannes International Film Festival took place from May 12 to 23, 2010. The festival opened with Ridley Scott's non-competition historical film Robin Hood . The also uncompetitive contribution The Tree by French artist Julie Bertuccelli was selected as the final film. The film Lung Boonmee raluek chat by the Thai Apichatpong Weerasethakul was awarded the Golden Palm , the main prize of the festival .

With over 1,600 proposals submitted for the competition, fewer films were submitted than in previous years. Before the beginning of the film festival, critics and the festival organization around the artistic director Thierry Frémaux spoke of a "thinner" competition or more difficult selection process that would lack the big names from the previous year and US productions. The announcement of the restriction of video material also met with strong criticism from various large press agencies in advance. The Cannes film market (French: Marché du film ) took place parallel to the festival . This represents the largest industry meeting at which film rights are bought and sold.

The official festival poster was presented at the end of March 2010. It showed the French actress Juliette Binoche painting a luminescent “Cannes” with a paint brush. Annick Durban reworked the picture by photographer Brigitte Lacombe .

Official selection

International competition

Competition jury

Jury President: Tim Burton
Also member of the main jury: British actress Kate Beckinsale
Represented in the competition for the Palme d'Or: the Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu ( Biutiful )
Also represented in the international competition: British director Mike Leigh ( Another Year )
Mathieu Amalric and the ensemble of his film Tournée

Tim Burton was presented in Paris at the end of January 2010 as the successor to the 2009 jury president, Isabelle Huppert . The American director, screenwriter and producer received an invitation to the Cannes competition in 1995 for his biopic Ed Wood . Two years later he was a jury member of Shōhei Imamura's The Eel and Abbas Kiarostami's The Taste of the Cherry with the Golden Palm . Burton has worked in all genres and is best known for dark but also humorous productions. In addition to real films like Sleepy Hollow , Big Fish or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , animated films like Corpse Bride are also part of his filmography. Festival president Gilles Jacob described him at the presentation as a “magician” with “comical madness and terrifying humor” .

Burton was assisted by eight judges. It was all about filmmakers:

The previous seven-member jury around Tim Burton was expanded to include Desplat on April 23, 2010. Prior to Desplat's appointment, attempts were made to sign Jafar Panahi , who was imprisoned in Iran . An empty chair during the opening ceremony was a reminder of the Iranian filmmaker.

British actress Kristin Scott Thomas hosted the opening ceremony on May 12th and the award gala on May 23rd as hostess ( "maîtresse de cérémonie" ). She had already held this position in 1999.

Competitors for the Golden Palm

The other jury members as well as the official program were presented on April 15, 2010 at a press conference in Paris, which was brought forward by one week. The program was expanded on April 23, 2010 to include Rizhao Chongqing by Wang Xiaoshuai and Szelíd Teremtés - A Frankenstein Terv by Kornél Mundruczó . Two days before the start of the festival, Ken Loach's film Route Irish was submitted for the competition. The film had not yet been completed when the rest of the program was announced on April 21 and had been proposed by the film producer Rebecca O'Brien a few days before the opening of the film festival .

19 film productions from 15 countries, including many auteur filmmakers , competed for the Palme d'Or , the main prize of the festival. In previous years, 20 to 22 films were invited to the competition. Works by German-speaking directors were not included. The conference on April 15 was overshadowed by a boycott of the press agencies Associated Press , Reuters , Agence France-Presse and the US stock photo agency Getty Images . The four big agencies protested against the festival organizers who had contractually granted the two French pay-TV channels Canal Plus and Orange TV to restrict the distribution of video material to third parties. This included recordings when the filmmakers arrived at the screenings in the Festival Palace and at press conferences.

As in the 2009 edition, most of the invited directors came from Europe (10), followed by their colleagues from Asia (6), Mexico, the USA and Chad (1 each). With four contributions, French filmmakers were most frequently represented, including Mathieu Amalric , who is better known as an actor , who reported in his film Tournée about a tour of American burlesque dancers in France. With Von Menschen und Göttern, Xavier Beauvois dramatized the true story of seven Cistercian monks who were killed by Algerian fundamentalists, during which Algerian-born compatriot Rachid Bouchareb followed the life of three brothers in Hors-la-loi during the Algerian independence movement after the Second World War assumed. Bouchareb relied again on his male ensemble of actors around Sami Bouajila , Jamel Debbouze and Roschdy Zem from Days of Fame, which was awarded in Cannes in 2006 . French politicians criticized the film even before it was released because it "falsified" the story . Bouchareb took part in Hors la loi at the beginning of the Sétif massacre (1945), in which French troops and militias put down unrest with blood. The performance took place under police protection.

Five of the 19 filmmakers (Mathieu Amalric, Doug Liman , Mahamat-Saleh Haroun , Im Sang-soo , Sergei Loznitsa ) made their debut in the competition, while the Iranian Abbas Kiarostami ( Copie conforme ), the British Mike Leigh ( Another Year ) and the French Bertrand Tavernier ( La princesse de Montpensier ) competed for the fourth time, Ken Loach ( Route Irish ) for the ninth time for the Golden Palm. Kiarostami, Leigh and Loach were the only filmmakers who had already won the main prize at the Cannes Film Festival. While Leigh was doing an ensemble comedy, sort of a sequel to Happy-Go-Lucky (2008), Kiarostami told of an English writer (played by British opera singer William Shimell ) who is traveling to Italy to present his last book. He made the acquaintance of a French gallery owner ( Juliette Binoche ). Loach's drama, in which he again worked with his screenwriter Paul Laverty and cinematographer Chris Menges , was about the British intervention in Iraq and told of a British soldier questioning the mysterious death of his friend. The film was named after the dangerous road of the same name that leads from the airport to downtown Baghdad .

The Russian director Nikita Michalkow presented Utomlyonnyje solnzem 2, a sequel to his Oscar-winning film The Sun That Deceives Us (1994), in which he and Oleg Menshikov again took on the leading roles. The EUR 41 million monumental film, which was shown in Russian cinemas at the end of April, was panned by local critics in advance. The South Korean Im Sang-soo dedicated himself with The Housemaid ( Ha-nyeo ) a remake of the work of the same name by his compatriot Kim Ki-young from 1960. As the heroine, he was able to engage Jeon Do-yeon , who won the 2007 Cannes Acting Award for Milyang had received.

The Mexican Alejandro González Iñárritu (winner of the 2006 directing award for Babel ) presented his Spanish-language contribution Biutiful , in which Javier Bardem plays one of the leading roles. The story was about an illegal trader who meets his childhood friend, a police officer. It was the first time that González Iñárritu had not worked with his long-time screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga . The $ 100 million drama was co-produced by Alfonso Cuarón and Guillermo del Toro . Doug Liman was the only American director to be invited to Cannes. His contribution Fair Game took on the Plame affair . Naomi Watts slipped into the role of the exposed American secret service agent at the side of Sean Penn . In recent years there has been criticism that American productions have dominated the film festival. However, Frémaux insisted that the film festival should show more American films. “It's part of our tradition and part of what we want for the future.” Neither Terrence Malick's much anticipated fantasy film The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, nor the latest works by Darren Aronofsky , Clint Eastwood or Gus Van Sant were was completed in time for the beginning of the festival.

With a man shouting from Mahamat Saleh Haroun and Schastye Moe (dt Title:. My happiness ) by Sergei Loznitsa had first received contributions from Chad and Ukraine invitations to compete in the history of the film festival. In his first feature film, a German co-production in cooperation with ZDF and ARTE , the documentary filmmaker Loznitsa focused on a truck driver who was subjected to violence and arbitrariness in Eastern Europe. This then became a criminal himself. The Artistic Director of the Film Festival, Thierry Frémaux , would have also wanted to consider Woody Allen's film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger with Naomi Watts and Josh Brolin . However, the American director reserved the right to have the romantic film shown outside of the competition.

In addition to the opening film Robin Hood by Ridley Scott , Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money doesn't sleep , which is also shown out of competition. The theatrical release of the sequel to the Oscar-winning film Wall Street (1987) had previously been postponed one day to April 24th. Stephen Frears ' Tamara Drewe is based on a comic strip by the Guardian journalist Posy Simmonds. In the modern version of Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd , Gemma Arterton took the title role.

Feature films

An overview of the 19 feature film productions that competed for the Palme d'Or. These were selected from around 1665 proposals, five fewer than in the previous year, which the artistic director Thierry Frémaux attributed to the financial crisis . Previously, the number of films submitted had increased from year to year. According to Frémaux, this year's selection was "particularly stubborn" . “Last year there were a lot of important directors in Cannes. This year these important filmmakers are writing or working […] The selection process […] was a delicate matter, with the absence of all these directors. The choice is a nice one, one that forced us to use our ingenuity, ” says Frémaux.

Further films and program items

The latest works by Sophie Fiennes ( Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow ), sister of the two actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes , Diego Luna ( Abel ), Otar Iosseliani ( Chantrapas ) and the documentary filmmaker Lucy Walker ( Countdown to Zero ). Olivier Assayas took on the Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez in his Carlos - The Jackal with Édgar Ramírez, shown outside of the competition . The production planned for television was shown in a shorter version.

The documentary Draquila - L'Italia che trema , also planned for a special screening, caused a scandal even before the festival started. The directorial work of the Italian Sabina Guzzanti dealt critically with the role of Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and the country's civil defense in the reconstruction of the city ​​of L'Aquila , which was destroyed by a severe earthquake . The Italian Minister of Culture Sandro Bondi refused to accept an invitation to the film festival and spoke of a "propaganda film" , "which offends the truth and the entire Italian people" . Also presented was Andrei Ujica's documentary Autobiografia lui Nicolae Ceaușescu , which dealt with previously unpublished footage of the Romanian dictator of the same name (1918-1989), while Charles Ferguson investigated the reasons for the financial crisis with Inside Job and had hired actor Matt Damon as the narrator .

Newly restored films were presented in the Cannes Classics series . Jean Renoir's Boudu - Saved from the Waters (1932) was presented in a restored version with previously unpublished footage. Alfred Hitchcock's horror film Psycho (1960) was shown with a revised or reconstructed sound, while Volker Schlöndorff's Die Blechtrommel (winner of the Golden Palm 1979) was presented in a new 164-minute director's cut . Other revised versions of the film included René Cléments Schienenschlacht (Director's Prize in Cannes 1946), John Huston's African Queen (1951), Luis Buñuels Viridiana (Goldene Palme 1961), Luchino Viscontis Der Leopard (Goldene Palme 1963), Mrinal Sens Khandhar (1984) and Hector Babenco's Kiss of the Spider Woman (actor award in Cannes 1985).

The Cannes Film Market (French: Marché du film ) took place parallel to the festival from May 12 to 21 . This is considered the most important meeting point for professionals from the film industry from all over the world. For ten days at the event film rights were bought and sold, television rights were distributed and co-producers were won for future projects. It is considered the largest of its kind. In 2010, 400 companies from 97 countries were represented with 4,000 in planning or already finished films. 2000 film producers had announced themselves, ten percent more than in the previous year.

The Italian Marco Bellocchio , who competed six times between 1980 and 2009, held a “Cinema Master Class” during the film festival in which he discussed his work as a filmmaker. He succeeded the Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne , who had given an insight into their work at the edition last year.
