I just posted my review of Mathieu Amalric’s Tournee (On Tour), which was the first In Competition film I’ve seen at this years Cannes Film Festival and while I wavered between a “C+” and a “B-” I ultimately ended with the slightly more favorable grade as it’s a film I would gladly watch again for further evaluation.
On top of seeing the movie I have also received several additional images from the film as well as the not safe for work international trailer. While the film is a French film, it is in both English and French so the trailer isn’t a total loss for the English-only speaking readers, but let me give you the synopsis, which should help a bit in deciphering the trailer where the language hangs you up:
Joachim (Amalric), a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind to start a new life in America. He comes back with a team of New Burlesque strip-tease performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris! But their dream of this tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the theatre.
