Uncertain Futures for Bounty at Cannes


When the 61st Cannes Film Festival opens here on Wednesday, all the customary glamour, spectacle and high Gallic seriousness will be in place: the red carpet, the hatchet-faced guards, the shouting paparazzi, the promenading stars and bleary-eyed journalists. If the Americans look a little more anxious than usual, it’s not just the enfeebled dollar.

Everyone may be expecting the bounty of good and even great films from around the world over the next 12 days, but the excitement is tempered by a sense that those films are facing unusually difficult prospects back in the United States.
