'Battle' bow brings out Mexican celebs

In a show of warm support, the “crema” of young Mexican filmmakers at Cannes dined, then wined, at a suave villa soiree Sunday evening — hosted by sales agent The Coproduction Office and pic exec producers Tartan Films — celebrating Carlos Reygadas’ competition player “Battle in Heaven.”

That’s if they didn’t hit the liver-challenging Oaxaca mescal.

Among diners — eating Reygadas’ favorite mix, oysters, foie gras, ice cream and champagne — directors-producers Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo del Toro, and the film troupe, led by Reygadas, who confessed he was surprised audiences didn’t laugh at moments of humor in “Battle.”

Schmoozing by the pool, high in the Cannes hills: Tartan’s Hamish McAlpine, TCO’s Philippe Bober, DP meister Christopher Doyle, Stephen Woolley, Italo distrib Andrea Occhipinti, Mexican actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, Latido sales head Massimo Saidel, and Mexican femme power-girls, Alejandra Paulin from the Guadalajara mart and Televisa’s Maru Garzon.
