2013 Cannes Film Festival Blog day 2

The central theme for this 2nd day was undoubtedly adolescence. In official competition, François Ozon’s Young and Beautiful is the melancholic story of a 17 year old prostitute. While the film suffers from being underwritten, it has the merit of revealing a new talent, the actress Marine Vacth (photo below) whose acting is is relatively rich.

In another genre, Sofia Coppola opens Un Certain Regard with The Bling Ring , based on a true story, about a group of teenagers who broke into the houses of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan Paris Hilton and Megan Fox. While it is somewhat reminiscent of Harmony Korine’s Spring breakers,  this proves to be an empty work: despite all the break ins,  partying, drugs and shopping, we are left pretty empty handed.  (Photo below: Claire Julien).
