In terms of teasers for the films of Cannes ’official selection, the Italians in the competition have taken a step ahead of their competitors: their three trailers are ready. Some are aesthetically noble, as for The youthby Paolo Sorrentino, or more impressively, that of Story of stories, by Matteo Garrone which we are pleased to present to you above. Fun, isn’t it?
There are also less happy images, because the films they defend are more realistic, or intimate, as for My Motherby Nanni Moretti, Raise your headof Frenchwoman Emmanuelle Bercot, or our younger sister, by Japanese Hirokazu Kore-eda. Aside from the competition, there are of course explosive images of madmaxto come out on the 14th …
Poster campaigns are good too. We took funny pictures of the heroes Vice versa on the Croisette (the first trailer opens in October). And now the even more provocative ones from Gaspar Noé’s latest film have been around for a few days, lovecited as “an erotic drama,” and scheduled as part of a midnight screening.
Gaspar Noé, the one through whom the scandal took place
Here we can imagine the filmmaker preparing with joy for a new scandal. Unless it is a personal initiative of the film’s producer, Alain Maraval. Because he was the one who launched the two posters that were already creating buzz on the web. The first represents a very hot kiss between two women and a man while the second, very sexy, offers a clear added X in a man at full ejaculation.
Contacted by 20 minutes while he was still editing, Gaspar Noé declined to comment. But the director is a regular of hot snaps at Cannes. From his early films, MEAT (1991) and Alone against everyone (1998), discovered in Semaine de la Critique, it caused a sulfur wind to blow over the Croisette.
The event grew with the presentationsCan’t go back (2002) where a scene of rape left many viewers andEnter the Void (2009) in Official Choice, whose sequences of drugs and sex shocked festival attendees. love would it be as shocking as its posters suggest? It’s already one of the most talked about films before Cannes, if you haven’t seen it yet. Even its director has never finished.
