Seduced and Abandoned

Documentary


 

An exploration of several interconnected subjects: The Cannes Film Festival, cinema art, money, glamour and death.

It's said that a story has a start, a middle, and an end, but this doco is all middle with little set-up or context and no real conclusion. There are interesting conversations with well-known directors and other studio folk, even an actor or two. Movie buffs will enjoy this more than others. The business of film making is laid bare and it might not be surprising to find that in what should be a creative world it's money that does the talking. No happy ever afters.
