CANNES, France (Reuters) – Wes Anderson brings together a star-studded cast for his love letter to journalism “The French Dispatch”, a series of vignettes set in the fictional French town of Ennui-sur-Blasé – where life is anything but dull. .

Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody and Timothee Chalamet are some of the big names in the film that premiered and received a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film follows an eccentric crew of journalists working for a Kansas newspaper outpost, who chronicle the fantastical stories they’ve encountered – from the murderous painter who becomes a reference of modern art from the confines of his prison to the intoxicating milieu. of the student protests in May 1968.

Interspersed with cartoon sequences and character collaborations and offbeat storylines, “The French Dispatch” also offers a look at France—a depiction of the police using tear gas to mock intellectual students.

Referring to The New Yorker magazine, Oscar winner Brody said the film was “a love for correspondence and literature and an appreciation for culture.”

“It’s also a reminder of the dignity of real journalism, because that’s real,” Swinton, who steals the screen as the paper’s art specialist, told Reuters.

“And I think it’s possible that people have forgotten that or pretended they never knew that, to know that journalism is an incredibly worthy and important cultural endeavor and that we really rely on it.”

Like Murray, Swinton is a fixture in Anderson films, including “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Moonrise Kingdom.”

“(Anderson) doesn’t even ask. He just tells you where and when … and that’s it and if you have half a brain cell you say OK … I never read the thing (script),” Swinton said of working with the American filmmaker.

“It’s not important to read it or study it. You just look at it (and think) ‘OK, I think that’s it,’” Murray added.

The critically acclaimed comedy-drama, which was supposed to premiere in Cannes last year, is one of the films competing for the festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or.

“Most of us saw it two years ago, but on a smaller screen,” Swinton said. “But to see it on that screen last night and get the response we got…it’s like carrying a big bag and we’ve now been able to put it down.”
