Martin Witz, 2007 c7.7

Gottlieb Duttweiler, founder of the Swiss supermarket chain Migros, was a man of great contradiction: by disposition a democrat, but a dictator by temperament. Both a visionary and a coolly calculating realist, he was a wartime profiteer in his younger years, before becoming a humanist. Duttweiler was a multifaceted egomaniac, social politician, patriot and European, thoroughbred businessman, loving husband, gambler – and towards the end of his life – a great sceptic for whom life was one great adventure.

Éric Rohmer, 1963 c7.4

A young man is smitten by a girl he meets on the street one day. But after several days without seeing her again, he becomes involved with another girl who works the local bakery. Eventually he has to choose between the tow young women, as he suddenly finds himself having arranged dates with both of them on the same day.

Judy
Rupert Goold, UK, 2019
with Renée Zellweger, Rufus Sewell c6.9

In 1968, singer Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week run of concerts. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for her comeback show, Judy battles with her management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans. Though she is still brimming with energy, it nonetheless becomes clear that the long years in showbusiness have taken their toll.

THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

The glory and misery of the event principle

Under normal circumstances, the international film world would be in the pre-fever of Cannes these weeks. The competition selection would be discussed, the leading industry magazine Variety would replace in its standard text, according to which there are already too few women and too many old white men running, the word Oscars by the word Cannes. The president of the jury, Spike Lee, would redirect the limelight on himself with impertinent statements, desperate industry people would be fighting for the last broom closets of the city at 400 Euro per night... Instead, they are now discussing whether Cannes could take place in late summer or early autumn, where its claim to supremacy could push the festivals of Locarno, Venice and Toronto, which for their part have become hypothetical, against the wall. Smaller festivals such as Fribourg and currently Nyon have moved to digital hull editions, the next ones rack their brains over whether an online festival is a festival at all, nobody has a recipe. To calm the spirits, here is a little homage to Cannes with winning films of the last years. It proves that the number 1 among the worldwide festivals is, well, still number 1.
