Our “Man in Cannes” Tom Linay, is coming to the end of his time in the French Riviera, but that doesn’t mean he has stopped reporting back to us, read on for his penultimate day of coverage from the 66th annual Festival de Cannes.
My penultimate film watching day in Cannes was notable for two things: I caught a brief glimpse of Marion Cotillard and Zoe Saldana as they arrived for the press conference for their new film, Blood Ties, which is screening out of competition. From what I could tell, both were wearing great dresses, which is the least you’d expect, I guess. The other notable thing was I saw a man walking around with two small pigs on leads. He was accompanied by another man who was singing a song on guitar that seemed to be called ‘I Love My Pig’. I’d like to say this was unusual but after five days in Cannes, it isn’t.
