CANNES REPORT - GUEDIGUIAN'S DON'T TELL ME THE BOY WAS MAD


A Special Screening at Cannes played host to the premiere of Robert Guediguian's Don't Tell me the Boy Was Mad. The film concerns the Armenian genocide, a fitting topic from the French-Armenian director; reviews have been fair and respectful, though not suggestive that Guediguian's latest will enjoy a significant international berth either with critics or audiences any time soon, unfortunately.
