Arab Today, arab today Day 11: Behind the scenes at the Cannes Film Festival

Cannes - AFP

Behind the scenes at the Cannes Film Festival, which hands out its top Palme d'Or prize on Saturday after an 11-day run: CANNES HORROR STORY: "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" director Tobe Hooper is back in Cannes to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the cult horror film. He was also in the French Riviera resort to attend the packed premiere of a fully restored version of the chilling movie, which brought back fond memories of his 1975 trip to Cannes that caused a riot... and a bomb scare. During that incident, people were so desperate to see the film that things got violent outside the movie theatre and his friend got flattened like a "pancake" against a window. As if that wasn't enough, viewers had to be evacuated from the theatre due to a bomb alert. When Hooper was chilling on a yacht a few days later, he found out the alert had been called in by a disgruntled fan who hadn't been able to get in. Hopefully that won't happen again when his restored version of the cult classic hits French screens in October... MADONNA MADNESS: Pascal Borno, the head of sales for film finance and production firm Corsan, is used to mixing with the beautiful and famous at Cannes -- it's his 28th festival on the French Riviera after all. But one Cannes moment took the biscuit. He was promoting Madonna's documentary "In Bed With Madonna", and the ultra-famous singer had come along too. Madness ensued. On the evening of the premiere of the documentary, Borno, Madonna, famed Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis, Dennis Hopper, Jean-Paul Gaultier, director Luc Besson and Roman Polanski had gathered on a yacht for a spot of dinner before the screening. They then made their way to the festival hall and along the red carpet, as scores and scores of screaming fans were held back by police. "When we got to the top of the stairs, Madonna took off her cape and was wearing a Gaultier bustier. People went ballistic," he says. "Police had to shut it down. We could not get my clients in, it was a disaster. We showed the movie to a half empty auditorium." PLAY IT AGAIN, QUENTIN: Twenty years after "Pulp Fiction" won the Palme d'Or, director Quentin Tarantino says he simply can't fathom film-makers who are such delicate flowers they can't bear to re-watch their own movies. "When I hear directors say that they don't watch their movies or they can't watch their movies because all they see is the flaws or it's too painful, I feel so sorry for those people," the fast-talking US director told reporters. Considered a "son of Cannes" since the 1994 win that catapulted him to international super-stardom, Tarantino said when he heard directors talking like this he just wondered "how can you get up in the morning?" "If it was too painful to watch my movies, I wouldn't make another one, I would just give up. No, I watch my movies all the time," he said. Back in Cannes for a 20th anniversary screening of "Pulp Fiction", Tarantino said he recently spotted "Kill Bill Volume 1" on television. He thought he'd just watch the first 15 minutes but ended up watching the whole thing. "(I watched) to the very end, the last credit and I felt, very, very gratified," he said, to laughter.
