Cannes 2016: Contempt of Godard on show at the 69th festival – Le Figaro

VIDEO – The organizers of the film fifteen Croisette chose the cult of one of the New Wave masters to illustrate a new edition to be held from 11 to 22 May <. /> p>

steps of the villa Malaparte those of the Palais des festivals in Cannes, it is only a step. Contempt is the cinema. It is not yet known if Jean-Luc Godard will honor the 69th Cannes Film Festival organizers to walk the red carpet, but his cult work in the form of a poster, will be the symbol for fifteen days of the annual celebration of cinema on the Croisette.

It was daring. Instead of the iconic face of a star close up, Cannes has decided this year to highlight a thin silhouette back, lost in the immensity of the sea.

Who can doubt to share a discerning movie buff, as the chosen picture shows Michel Piccoli. The actor embodies the writer Paul Javal Contempt , and climbed the steps to the roof of the villa designed by Curzio Malaparte. The photo is golden and opens onto a drunken Mediterranean sun.

Besides the talent of Jean-Luc Godard, the number 69 must have inspired the festival directors. If Contempt is regarded by critics as the finest film world, it is also because the Brigitte Bardot time was undoubtedly the most beautiful woman in the world. A replica, only one will make this eternal beauty. With a fiery ingenuity, it will ask Piccoli: “Hey, you love them, my ass?”. B.B was lying naked on her stomach. Her husband enumerated, with a falsely wryly, all parts of his body …

After Marcello Mastroianni, so Godard will be the 69th Cannes Film Festival symbol. Hervé Chigioni and graphic designer Gilles Frappier designed the poster. The visual identity was created in 2016 by Philippe Know … “Say, you love this poster?”
