I never thought a book about making a documentary about the Cannes film festival could actually be laugh out loud funny. Boy was I wrong. A must for cinephiles and aspiring filmmakers as well as anyone curious about how the festival system really works.

Picked up from a library book sale last year.
I laughed a lot reading this book though frequently it was due to the craziness of it all. I know very little about Cannes or film festivals in general so I guess I learnt something too.
