Cries and whispers

May 2004
Hollywood Reporter -- International Edition;5/18/2004, Vol. 383 Issue 47, p28
This article presents comments made by personalities related to the entertainment industry. Pedro Almodovar, whose film "Bad Education" opened the Festival de Cannes, says," I'm not in competition this year to win a prize. To play the part of the person who opens the curtain is, as I say, a prize in itself. So what I feel is enormous joy." Cannes film festival jury president Quentin Tarantino, whose film "Kill Bill-Vol. 2" is screening at the festival, says, "For me, as a cinephile since as far back as my memory goes back, to me, Cannes is heaven. So if there's another level above heaven, all right, that's where I'm at."
