Cannes – Tuesday

Watched Cristian Mungiu’s (4 months, 3 weeks) portmanteau Tales From The Golden Age, a very enjoyable set of 5 shorts parodying life in the Ceausescu’s Romainia – my favourites were the The Legend Of The Official Visit and the The Legend Of The Greedy Policeman (3 out of 5)

Caught the 3pm screening of Almodóvar’s Broken Embraces in the Lumiere (4 out of 5) nothing really new in terms of Almodóvar but a great mix of noir and melodrama, intertwining plots and a film within a film.

In the evening headed down the beach for an enjoyable evening at the EIFF / Scotish film party

Grabbed some dinner in the old town and finished the evening off with some great cocktails over at the Wild Bunch villa.
