I've been reading about this for a while now.

I don't think it looks delicious, but I love Steve Coogan and the music in the trailer is New Order and I will be seeing it whenever it comes out on DVD.

Anything that gets booed at Canne is worth one look.

Plus Kirsten Dunst looks a little bit like Debbie Harry in Hairspray in some of those scenes.

The reason I wonder about my perversity is that I cannot fully understand why it looks delicious to me. A period piece about the life voyage of the archtypical little rich girl. At first I was just curious but looking at the photogallery on the French web site totally charmed me. Rip Torn in the cast is a plus for me as well.

New Order? Perhaps that is part of the seduction. The music seemed 80s to me and I was curious to only see Steven Severin as a recognizable pop name in the imdb.com credits. The movie most ruling my reveries for the last year has been "24 Hour Party People." It just clicked with me that the Alan Partridge you've refered at least a couple of times is the Stephen Coogan character. I've didn't know Coogan before seeing 24HPP and I've delayed seeing his other work since so as to protect my little bubble of that movie. I saw 24 Hour Party People on the DVD and watching the movie with Tony Wilson commentary on one hand and with Steve Coogan's on the other added greatly to my facination. I recently downloaded a short tv feature that was produced when the Joy Division compilation "Substance" was released. It was like 24 Hour People encapsulated into 8 minutes.

You should never "protect" yourself from Steve Coogan's work--your 24HPP bubble will not be damaged.

He's brilliant.

stumbling though the French web site I see Cure and Bow Wow Wow listed in the music credits as well. Isn't that 80s?

Yes.

One of the biggest "complaints" about this movie is that it contains '80s music.

I don't see that as a minus.

i agree. from my limited perspective on the music and pop culture of the 80s, it seems quite fitting.

Shit. I just saw that I missed the "s" at the end of Cannes.

That's what I get for posting while I'm running around getting ready for a party and watching shows about amputation fetishists cutting off their own hands on Discovery Health.

Enjoy the party. I've got to do the laundry I've been putting off all weekend. In fact, must step away from the computer. Just one more click...
