25 May 2004 hadess   » (Master)

Back from Cannes. It was a great week, in the sun, and in the dark rooms. We had a nice Saturday evening with teuf, who I'd like to thank again for hosting us on the way to Cannes from Marseille.

The rest of the week was a mix of films in the little cinemas around town, showing the films on the edge of the Festival, shopping, beaches, and nice french restaurants (I greatly advise the Brouette de Grand-mere). I managed to catch the FA Cup final, in the (proper!) irish pub Morrisson's, and we also went to St-Honorat. Really nice place to chill, and have a picnic in the Sun. Damn shame that the batteries of my newly bought digital camera chose the exact time we arrived on the island to die... And the monks don't seem to sell batteries.

Watched l'Apres-midi de M. Andesmas, Hiroshima mon amour, Dona Flor and her 2 husbands (The must-see, it's available on DVD), Soy Cuba ("I am Cuba"... Did our corporate see that film? :), Les aventures extraordinaires de Michel Strogoff (Sniff, my childhood watching Albator...), Somersault, Noite Escura (which isn't even showing in IMDB!), Innocence (Ghost In the Shell 2! Rawk!), and Life and Death Of Peter Sellers. In addition to that, I saw Sur mes levres and les Valseuses. Quite unfortunately, I'll have to go with the normal crowds to see Faranheit 9/11, Shrek 2 and the Battle of Algiers...

Update: I completely forgot about the GNOME stuff... Level on the modules side, as I took over nautilus-cd-burner (mehehe) from Alex, and got released from any "I am not the maintainer, dammit"-hacking on libgtop. All your CD/DVD drives are belong to me.
