Cannes is really great. While I was traveling to get there, I didn't know what to expect. I suspected that such expressions as „canned speech“ and „canned laughter“ had nothing to do with the name of the town and I turned out to be absolutely right. On the second crossroad I saw a huge painted poster of an old French film with Alain Delon hanging on the facade of a building. Then came the palms, the boutique shops, the yachts, Ritz-Carlton, the palaces, the beaches, the Lamborghinis ... or the other way round.
By that time there was a hectic preparation for the film
festival going on in town – they were spreading out flags and carpets, low fences with plush ropes. Spotlights, cameras ... a real pleasure for the cinema fans. And for me.
All in all, Cannes is the most beautiful French town I have been to. Its really high level is supported by all the 70 thousand citizens. The men wear straw hats of all shapes and sizes. The women ... we'd better call them ladies. The policemen ride bikes. Di Caprio is drinking his coffee on the beach... It's really great.
