If the Cannes Film Festival was told to me, by Henry-Jean Servat

On the occasion of the sixtieth edition of Cannes film festival, Henry Servat opens wide the doors of the Palace and the rooms of palaces, on bottom of black tuxedos and red carpet. Through 150 amazing photographs, selected from the millions of negatives kept in the archives of Paris Match, it tells some of the most memorable episodes of an exceptional story, punctuated with countless parties and so many moments of emotion or provocation.

Behind the scenes with the stars or in the intimacy of their rooms, at the steps of the palace or on the private beaches of the big hotels, discover the magic of the famous Croisette where every year stars and myths, genies and starlets parade, between hysterical fans and paparazzi.
From Brigitte Bardot to Sophie Marceau, from Sophia Loren to Sharon Stone, not to mention Delon, Belmondo, Hitchcock, Visconti, Lelouch, Almodovar ... You will find over the pages beautiful photographs of this cultural and media event which, for 60 years , celebrates with great fanfare the cinema, the stars and the sun!
Henry Servat was a columnist at Free Midi, at French movie and Release. Journalist at Paris Match for more than 20 years, he also collaborates on the program "Télématin" on France 2.
