The film festival in honor of Superstar Alain Delon and reap criticism. Because the actor is excited not only with his art, but also with radical views.
"Women in Hollywood critizise the decision to give the Palme d'or to Alain Delon..."
There was almost something of a commotion, as a French Journalist, the artistic Director of the festival, Thierry Frémaux, a question to the honorary Palme for Alain Delon
"Please let me, please let me finish and wanted to ask:!"
This is a sensitive matter. Because Alain Delon, since he has retired years ago from the movie business, especially shines with delicate views and statements. Sample? His attitude to the death penalty.
"I learned very early that you pull weeds with the roots, and I think there are some things that are inexcusable, and there are people, who are not allowed to remain on the earth," says Delon once.

His decades-long friendship with the founder of the extreme-right National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, they have fought together in the Indochina war is cooled now, but the ideas of the party Delon is still good - sometimes even not being radical enough.
In Cannes, but it wipes such views aside like a pesky Fly. With the more or less laconic remark: "of Course he has said some things, and he has the right to Express his opinion freely", declared Thierry Frémaux visibly annoyed. "We don't give him the Nobel peace prize."
Alain Delon is a solitaire - ever since he was a loner, a cold-blooded, devastatingly good-looking angel on the canvas. He actually wanted to be deported never to the Film - from his parents to foster care, he shut down the school, made a butcher's apprenticeship, a craft that he has mastered today, as he says himself: "I am still very skilled with a knife: give me one and I entbeine any meat.""The palm tree is totally deserved"
The older Delon is, the more he goes off with the cleaver on its surroundings: homosexuality is against nature, he said in 2013. In November last year, he admitted in a television Interview, indirectly, to have women slapped.
In Cannes, but you wanted to know about nothing in the end. Neither in front of the Festival Palace for the Fans: "This palm is totally deserved, he is a very, very Big," says a supporter. "I think it's scandalous how to treat with him, this whole circus - the man has his Beliefs and he is allowed to comment on, that doesn't change his career."
Yet the award of the honorary Palme, was presented to him and stirred his daughter Anouchka to tears: "You always said that you're proud of your career. And today I'm the proud is on you, the actor, and with immense Pride we pass on to you the Golden honor-palm tree."Little metoo
Cannes learned remains a Festival that is nothing from the outside dictate. Alain Delon got his palm. On schedule and under deafening cheers.
As it seems, you have very little from the last year as gifts metoo-the debate learned. The young German producer Eva Blondiau no longer be found: "The surprise me at Cannes so right. Here, many people are in and out - that were the biggest chauvinists. You can't overlook that the movie is political and should set an example, and if you don't do something, that speaks to the Festival," she says.
But so it is: criticism you don't like, on the glamorous Côte d'azur.
