"CANNES. Time for the 72nd edition of the world's biggest film festival."
"thanks to Quentin Tarantino stressklippte his new movie with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, the star quality that the festival has always been associated with."
"When about 95 percent of the cinema at this year's festival was presented a month ago, was the first question Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux got from the media afterwards:"
"Where is Quentin tarantino's movie?"
"He explained easily bothered that it probably would not be ready. And how much he talked about that where there was previously Guldpalmsvinnare like the brothers Dardenne, Terrence Malick and Ken Loach, the new movies of Pedro Almodóvar and Jim Jarmusch, and it certainly also was an unusual amount of young female filmmakers in the official sections, it felt like a dark cloud towered over the festival."
"Filmvärldens main nerd"
"No Tarantino! No ”Once upon a time... in Hollywood”, just the title is enticing. No Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio. Where was stjärnglansen?"
"But Tarantino could finish, and on Tuesday next week, may the world see what filmvärldens largest glasses found here at this time."
"For the first time in Cannes history was festivalchefen press conference the day before the festival started. He got a bit defensive, but was often biting in the lines."
"If stjärnglansen on the red carpet:"
"– the Red carpet is a nice Cannes-tradition. But Tarantino is here with his film that he is one of the world's most influential directors and an important part of both the Cannes and film history. Fixed otherwise... who is a star varies from person to person. Doris Day has just passed away. You ask young people, they know the unfortunately not at all who she is."
"If the festival made a bet on significantly more female directors:"
"– We have improved us. But when I look out over you, most of the male a little older journalists, one can ask: Have you never thought about to send younger female colleagues instead."
"Of Alain Delon, the 83-year-old French actress, will receive an honorary palme d'or. Something that has been criticised by the organisation Women and Hollywood, upset over his misogynistic, homophobic and racist statements."
" I do not share his views. But he gets the award for his outstanding contributions to French cinema, it is not the Nobel peace prize we are handing out."
"And speaking of star-power or not, Thierry Frémaux – which, at the side of the film love the game of football and Bruce Springsteen admitted that he may become a little starstruck."
"– I'll definitely take a selfie with Maradona, " he says. "
"The argentine fotbollslegendaren come here because of a new documentary about his life."
