The Cannes Film Festival kicks off today, and while we aren’t much for the industry roundup, one flick in particular has caught our eye. Mostly thanks to the poster.
The film is Tournée (On Tour in English), and the gentleman behind the lady’s knees is Matthew Amalric, the French actor who directed the film and took its juiciest role, as an impoverished burlesque manager shepherding a troupe of American dancers through a tour of the ports of France. You might remember him from Diving Bell and the Butterfly or, more likely, as the bad guy in the latest Bond flick, but apparently he’s moved on to tales even more exciting than the life of a fashion photographer. Here’s hoping this one gets a tour of its own.
