Summary "Chacun son Cineḿa: to each his own cinema. To each his own tale about the most lyrical, emotive and textual of art forms. To celebrate the 60th birthday of Cannes, the world's premier film festival, festival director Gilles Jacob approached 33 of cinema's greatest talents, asking them to make a three-minute short film about the nature of cinema and its place in their lives. 33 individuals-including a pair of brothers-with 32 opinions, stories, characters and visions about the cinema as a whole. At times humourous, sometimes self-referential, often reflective, occasionally sorrowful but all irrefutably significant. A cinephile's dream"--Container
