The Cannes darling has hurried: Tarantino at the film festival

Tarantino worked hard in the editing room and made it just in time: The US director brings his new film "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood" to Cannes - and Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio also come.

At the launch of the program in April, the Cannes darling had been sorely missed, but now the management of the film festival has good news: Quentin Tarantino comes and brings his tenth film to the Croisette - "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood".

The best part: The main actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie also come to present the competition entry on the red carpet. The story is set in the time around the murder of cult leader Charles Manson half a century ago in Los Angeles.

The news from Cannes sounds euphoric: "We were worried that the film would not be finished in time, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room for four months, is a real, loyal and punctual Cannes child," it says ,

Apparently Tarantino has put a lot of effort into it. 25 years ago he won the Golden Palm with “Pulp Fiction” in Cannes, now he is back at the start. "Inglorious Basterds" also had its premiere in Cannes in 2009.

Also registered for the competition: French director Abdellatif Kechiche, who won the Golden Palm in 2013 with “Blue is a warm color”. The current work "Intermezzo" is about the love life of young people in the nineties.

State Secretary of Culture Monika Grütters (CDU) gave the starting signal for the "Grand Tour of Modernity" on Thursday on the occasion of this year's Bauhaus anniversary at the Bernau School (Barnim). The tour invites you on a journey of discovery to 100 prominent Bauhaus sites, but also to lesser-known places and buildings of the modern era.

He is considered a universal genius and has created the most famous painting in the world. But Leonardo da Vinci often just jumped from idea to idea without thinking too much about its implementation. When he died 500 years ago, he had painted little more than a dozen pictures. Nevertheless, the man from Tuscany fascinates more than ever before.

If the German Film Prize is awarded on Friday, the drama “Gundermann” has a good chance. Other films have also been nominated several times. In contrast, a candidate appears surprisingly little.
