I am very impressed by our flat which is the nicest place I've ever stayed in about 15 years - it's bigger than my kitchen for a start. Even more impressively, it's 2 mins from the boulangerie which means you can collect a pain au chocolat on the way to the Palais. I think they should put that in the marketing blurb.

Hoorah! it's not raining, it is in fact quite sunny but true to form, despite the best efforts of Simon to get me a golden ticket for Cronenberg's Cosmopolis they won't let me, or the 100 or so other people at the tail end of the queue, into the screening.

My very first time in Cannes and to say I'm a little excited to be here is a big understatement. I'm very lucky to have my colleague Becky as my guide, she's full of beans for the festival, has glorious skills and know-how when it comes to planning a full day of films - plus it's a joy to have a companion for the long queues and umbrella-holding duty!

I feel deeply guilty for complaining about a little rain during the next film. La Pirogue is a hard-hitting story about people from Senegal who try their luck crossing the seas to Spain in a rudimentary wooden fishing boat. As expected, much peril awaits.
