Cannes Film Festival – Photos Update

Many pictures from this year’s Cannes Film Festival have been added. Some pictures are really gorgeous! Enjoy.

During the press conference of “The Crossing” (May 17th), a trailer was unveiled to journalists. One of them filmed it from is seat. The quality is not very good but it’s enough to assume the film will be amazing…

The Crossing Cannes Press Conference

Yesterday, the cast of John Woo’s upcoming film “The Crossing” attended a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. See below a video from the press conference:

Some articles give some relevant information about the film…

John stated that “Titanic” was a love story that took place on a ship. But “The Crossing” is a story of fate, as these characters were fleeing from the war-torn China to Keelung, Taiwan.

“The wartime background brought each person a different fate, so if there is any comparison, I would say it is closer to “Gone with the Wind”,” said John.

According to Woo, “The Crossing” is “a love story spanning fifty years of Chinese history.” He was anxious to emphasize that the film is a romance despite the fact that he is best known for directing male-oriented action films. It certainly looked romantic judging by the trailer, with some inimitable Woo set pieces, and strong hints of beloved Chinese themes of separated families, star-crossed love, and the tragedy of war.

And Ziyi…

In regards to HKFA Best Actress Zhang Ziyi, John said, “I believed that directors who have worked with her like Wong Kar Wai, Ang Lee, and Zhang Yimou would be rather happy because she would exceed expectations and work even harder than the director would ask.”

Asked why she accepted her role in “The Crossing,” Zhang said, “It’s the first time I cried so much reading a script.”
