Cannes 2013: AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS Leads Critics' Week Sidebar

With much speculation that David Lowery's Sundance crimer Ain't Them Bodies Saints would sneak into a top spot at Cannes, there were a few raised eyebrows when the film was absent from the announcement last week. Never fear Riveiera-goers, the Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara starrer, which has been continually compared to Terrence Malick, will indeed be at the Cannes film fest, though it will be playing at La Semaine de la Critique, aka the Critics' Week sidebar.

Sometimes thought of as the Next section of Cannes, the Critics' Week program often highlights films by first and second time directors. Other notable films include Canadian director Sébastien Pilote's second feature Le Démantèlement, British director Paul Wright's For Those in Peril, and the opening night film, Katell Quillévéré's Suzanne.

"Ninja Thyberg - Pleasure (Sweden)"
I read an interview with this director in the newspapers.......this is some short feature about the porn industry.
I don´t know really what it is about(the interview was a bit cryptic) but do expect graphic sexscenes......Thyberg made some reference to a DAP scene......hahahahha...sounds great to me.
Whatever it is, sounds interesting, and remember, she claims to be a feminist, and former anti porn activist.
Thanks for the list Mr Aldrich.
