A potent combination of sun, sand, and scuzzbags, the Cannes film festival would be ripe for parody if it weren’t already so over-the-top. In director Henry Jaglom’s light comedy about various filmmakers and actors struggling through 12 days of schmoozing, Aimee shines as an older French actress trying to make her next career move, and Silver plays a big studio producer to the hilt. But ultimately, the movie — which was shot during the actual festival — is so inside that it is more like a wink to those who have attended than a primer for those who haven’t.
