Cannes is Cannes and, although for most mortals it is a Film Festival, its fame dwarfs an entire city. But it is what you have when you capture the world’s attention during the dates in which it is the capital of celluloid.
Everyone covets their coveted prizes. And, apart from the statuettes, called Palmas, one of the ones that gives you a lot of covers and free promotion is the ovations.
For now, two have stood out above the rest.
The seven minutes that the audience stood applauding went to Johnny Deep at the beginning of the screening of “Jeanne du Barry”, the story of the courtesan of the French King Louis XV, a role he is playing for the first time in French.

. Let’s remember the trial with her ex-partner Amber Heard in which both accused each other and were both found guilty.

And a more than deserved ovation when receiving the festival’s Palme d’Or of Honor for actor Michael Douglas, who appeared accompanied by his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their daughter Carys Zeta Douglas.
The affection received by Harrison Ford who attended the presentation of «Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny» stands out, for which the critics did not hesitate to give it very low marks.
Sometimes, the classics have to be left to rest in peace, is my opinion.
Even so, I predict box office success, which is what is pursued. I’ll see her, sure.
By the way, our Antonio Banderas comes out. And his closest friend Pedro Almodóvar is also premiering a short-gay-western film “Strange way of life” with Ethan Hawke.
And, for now, the winner in the «ovationometer» at the Cannes Film Festival is Martin Scorsese’s film «Killers of the flower moon» with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
A film based on true events about the murders of Osage Indians when oil is discovered on their land. Well, I’ll have to see it too. Definitely.
