More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Former National Public Radio correspondent Beauchamp and Le Monde reporter Behar here team up to provide an earnest, fact-packed look at what may be the world's biggest annual media event. They describe the evolution of Cannes from a small fishing village to an international resort and, beginning in 1946, the site of a film festival whose awards rival the Oscars in clout. Dropping plenty of names and recreating with gusto the carnival atmosphere that prevails for two weeks each May, they also display a cogent grasp of the festival's political, social and artistic dynamics. The selection and judging of individual films, as well as some of the more earth-shaking deals and legendary romances consummated at Cannes, are covered in detail. Both seasoned festival veterans, the authors scant neither the Fabulous Fortnight's trademark glamour nor its more workaday significance as the international film industry's most important business convention and trade show.

Library Journal
Beauchamp, a reporter for National Public radio, offers this revealing and exciting romp through the world's most important film festival: Cannes. His first chapter revels in gossip and name dropping, which effectively sets the scene for his treatment of the machinations of the international film marketplace. Importantly, Beauchamp goes into detail about the festival's history, its many roles in shaping worldwide media, and the complexities of the interactions of critics, stars, the jury, agents, producers, distributors, and directors. He copiously details the text with anecdotes and immerses the reader in the crazed flow of festival life. This is sure to be of interest to movie enthusiasts and anyone with a stake in film production or exhibition. It is an important addition to any collection addressing media's place in our society.-- Robert Rayher, Sch. of the Art Inst. of Chicago
