Cannes offers nonstop films and fun

To those who’ve never been to Cannes, it seems like nonstop exhilaration. To those who are veterans, it just seems nonstop.

The cost, the exhaustion, the jet lag, the long hours! Oh, mes amis, lighten up: You’re in the South of France. Things could be worse.

This is the festival that has awarded prizes to filmmakers including Bunuel, Fellini, Bergman, Kurosawa, Wajda, Chen Kaige, Antonioni, Soderbergh and Spielberg.

To help ignite your fond memories of the place, here are some photos. And remember: Behave yourself this year, because you might wind up on this page in our bicentennial issue.
