Now just so I don't get misquoted here, I'm not saying that HP and AatKoP
are in competition at Cannes, just that they are screening there.  Cannes,
besides being a film festival, is also used by the film companies to get
their films seen and (hopefully) find buyers for the European distribution
rights.  So I don't know if MSM is there or not -- but the films are.  But
then again, I haven't heard of any MSM sightings around Westwood recently,
so who knows?
