FILM / Cannes Diary: Life and nothing but: They also show movies at the Cannes Film Festival. Sheila Johnston on those making the biggest waves
Tuesday 17 May 1994
It is becoming more and more difficult to make wonderful movies. Watching Une Partie de campagne (1936), which kicked off a centenary tribute to the French master Jean Renoir, one is struck by its combination of beauty and passion, but above all by how rarely that combination is found today. Today, film-makers are hip, self-conscious, clever, cine-literate. They make witty genre pastiches like the opening night film, the Coen brothers' enjoyable comedy The Hudsucker Proxy, in which Tim Robbins plays an innocent sap propelled to the presidency of a conglomerate. It's a satire on the American way of greed, Frank Capra painted cynical and black.

Robert Lapoujade, painter and filmmaker, died aged 72. Best known for his portraits of French literary figures like Andre Breton, Georges Bataille and Francois Mauriac. Jean-Paul Sartre wrote the preface of a catalogue for one of his exhibitions. Won a Cesar in 1975 for his animated short film Un Comedien Sans Paradoxe ('An Actor Without Paradox'). In 1973, he shocked the Cannes Film Festival with Le Sourire Vertical ('The Vertical Smile'), a full-length feature later banned by French censors because of its sexually explicit and violent scenes, including castration.

BRITISH clubs are loved all over the world. Legends like Celtic and Manchester United, Leeds and Liverpool have supporters' associations scattered across the globe. So do Woking: the Diadora League champions boast a notable following in Japan, the US and Norway. 'We even have fans in places like South Africa and Venezuela,' Phil Ledger, the Kingfield secretary, said. And they get involved: the yen-crazed Tokyo branch sponsors the Cards' goalscoring goalkeeper, Laurence Batty, soon to be seen diving the wrong way in the BBC film 'Born Kicking'. The Surrey side's Norwegian disciples even produce a bi-monthly, bilingual fanzine, sub- titled 'The Organ for Woking Supporters in Norway'. One Cup run and you are Woking all over the world.
