Waiting waiting waiting…

Sometimes in order to see a film in Cannes it is necessary to wake up early, even very early! Each screening being strongly coveted, the various theatres see long, very long queues of people waiting. The audience is ready to wait sometimes more than one hour and a half (the time of a film...) before being able (hopefully!) to enter the theatre.
And this waiting takes place whatever the weather is, of course…

And all that for films, which will be released in a few weeks (look at Indiana Jones) or a few months. And even more paradoxically, in order to see a maximum of films during these ten days some people leave during the screening to reach another one…

Some among them are equipped. Even sometimes very well organised. Small stool, daily newspapers, sunglasses or umbrella… They talk about the Festival, the films seen the day before, the potentials award winners…

It is that also the magic of Cannes!
