The article reports on the staging of the film "The Da Vinci Code" during the film festival in Cannes, France. The film has been highly anticipated especially with the approach employed by its production outfits Sony and Imagine, which is aimed at generating curiosity by withholding information on the film. There were two press screenings provided for film critics. The film, which is based from a novel by author Dan Brown, has led to controversy particularly on Christianity.
