Lumière Festival: Bong Joon-ho, a parasite like at home in Lyon

WE WERE THERE - The Korean director, winner of the 2019 Palme d'Or, was welcomed in the capital of Gaul as a rock star before giving a generous masterclass.

In Lyon, the Palmes d'or follow or intersect. Tuesday, Martin Scorsese received a beautiful ovation at the preview of The Irishman, twilight mafia film carried by the duo Robert de Niro-Al Pacino (more present than the ten minutes of Heat), broadcast on Netflix in late November . Friday and all weekend, there will only be for Francis Ford Coppola, Prix Lumière 2019. We will remember that before making wine and tomato sauce, he was the greatest American filmmaker of the years 1970 and 1980, twice Palmes d'or - Secret conversation (1974) and Apocalypse Now (1979). Thursday, the British Ken Loach, also double winner - Le Vent se lève (2006) and Me, Daniel Blake (2016) - came to talk about cinema and politics, a few days before the release of his new film, the very good Sorry We Missed You.

But the star of the day is without a doubt Bong Joon-ho, the Korean director of the formidable Parasite, Palme d'or last May and spectacular triumph: 10 million tickets
