The next movie I want to write about is "This Must Be The Place" by Italian director Paolo Sorrentino. The film deals with a middle-aged wealthy rock star, who is bored and depressed in his retirement and takes on the quest of finding his father's tormentor. So leading actor Sean Penn is Cheyenne, who wears a long black wig, uses eyeliner and starts his journey across America. The most of all I liked the press conference and what Sean Penn answered about the meaning of rock'n'roll: "Rock'n'roll is extremely important. It's a sort of polite society disease. The film follows its own story and Cheyenne pursues his quest to get out of depression".
As Cannes Film Festival likes to make tributes to the legends of the cinematography and the last two days were dedicated to Stanley Kubrick. His wife Christiane Kubrick and a star of "A Clockwork Orange" Malcolm McDowell came to Cannes to visit movie premiere "The Skin I Live In" and to lead the film masterclass "Le Lechon De Cinema: Malcom McDowell". The widow was very touched by such warm greeting, so she said: "I am proud to be here but I never wanted to be here. My husband should have been here but he didn't come." And then there was a moment of silence. Some people will be always remembered.
