The 72nd edition of Cannes is still "hanging out" with the impact of Rocketman's debut on Elton John's life. He went out of competition and was applauded with emotion.

Freddy Mercury's life of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll gave a family movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, one of the biggest hits ever in Portugal. This Rocketman, musical fantasy about Elton John's life of sex, drugs and rock n 'roll, is performed by Dexter Fletcher, one of the directors of Bohemian Rhapsody, but it's anything but family - he has gay sex and avoids playback. A kind of anti-karooke approach that documents Elton's rise, fall and rise again. Using the songs of Taupin & amp; John as a (non-chronological) excuse to tell his biography, the film focuses on the singer's childhood and the way his parents divorce marked him, as well as his friendship with Bernie Taupin, the author of his song lyrics, not forgetting how your career started after a concert in Los Angeles.

Then Dexter Fletcher invents musical numbers that put the viewer in Elton's mind: the relationship with drugs, the way he didn't feel loved by his parents, fame and the plunge into homosexuality. But what is curious about this extravagance is its immaculate desire to get into music in Broadway musical numbers where the actors sing and dance. For better and worse, the kitsch formula of the process achieves a delirious effect. At so many times, the camera embraces the heartless emotional side of the thing, and it's hard not to get caught in all that awkwardness, even when Taron Egerton overstates an ever-struggling composition.

In Cannes, the film had the usual standing ovation, which was not unaware of the presence of Elton John, one of the film's producers. Perhaps that is why it is reasonable to think that Rocketman, more than a movie of this fashion of commercial biopics, is an object that crosses the wishes of the music industry and highlights a hypothesis of lucrative celebration of the Elton John brand. Likewise, it was no coincidence that on the Carlton Hotel beach, Elton John himself and Taron Egerton himself made a point of performing at the movie party.

Wherever you go, Rocketman will always be an event of this festival, having divided opinions. Despite its shortcomings, it is a musical with surprising complexity and some remarkable choreographic values. Arrives in Portugal already for the week.

And it was also on a beach in Cannes that the industry celebrated the "cash rebate" that the ICA and the Portuguese government propose to anyone who wants to film in Portugal. It was a cocktail that gathered a considerable crowd of foreign producers and investors. The 30% cash rebate is really attracting a lot of international productions and Millennium has already announced that The Legend of Sindbad, a renowned star-free blockbuster, will be filmed in Portugal very soon.

Interestingly, the same Millennium who has the new Rambo in Cannes (only an excerpt will be shown in the honor that the festival has planned for Stallone), was not very generous with the Portuguese distributor of the film, having requested an exorbitant value for the interview with the Stallone himself. The value was so high that Portugal was left out of interviews with the legendary actor.
