Too Hot

Cannes Bans Erotic Film

Apparently some things are too racy even for the French. Husband-and-wife team Michael Cohen and Emmanuelle Beart traveled to Cannes this year hoping to screen their new film Ça Commence par la Fin, but the movie has been deemed too hot for the movie festival's viewers. "I don't understand how a love story can provide such hatred on the part of certain viewers. It's practical to be one's own actor, one can allow everything, one doesn't impose any limits on oneself," Cohen has said about his film. Festival officials said they didn't need to defend every decision for the competition.
