Recap ‘- The acclaimed performance of Kristen Stewart Personal Shopper , Assayas film yet we can forget the excitement around the new Almodóvar, the neckline of the day … See the film of the day.
● Today’s star
with Marion Cotillard, Kristen Stewart is considered one of the muses of this 69th edition of the Cannes festival. Also showing two films in official selection, was present on the first night to launch the festivities with Café Society , Woody Allen. Monday night press screening, and twice on Tuesday, she was showing a second film, nominated for the Golden Palm. On camera Olivier Assayas for Personal Shopper , it embodies Maurenn, a young American woman who takes care of the wardrobe of a celebrity and tries to make contact with his deceased brother. A film she wears at arms.
● The disappointment of the day
If Kristen Stewart always proves talented Personal Shopper , Olivier Assayas, he loses a few points with the audience and critics. After the first screening, the film was booed. French director, yet applauded Sils Maria two years ago in Cannes, thus receives the first whistles of the competition. His incredible story unfortunately scared person and filmmaker making the team one of his first misstep. Assayas remains fair play: “When you come to Cannes, it is ready for anything.”
● The film (over) estimated the day
See a movie by Pedro Almodóvar Cannes is an opportunity to reconnect with some old habits.

Pedro Almodóvar would like people forget his name, and that of his brother Agustin, his producer still, now tainted by the case of Panama papers, whose documents were unveiled in early April. Filmmaker therefore thought that the Cannes festival – where they speak only cinema is known thing! – We do not evoke the sore subject. No luck, someone dared. While the filmmaker minimizes made today: “My name and my brother are the least important that appear in Panama Papers. If this were a movie, we would not even in the credits while the Spanish press treats us as the main characters. “
