The French newspaper Le Monde has published it's review of Fahrenheit 9/11, written by Jean-Luc Douin.
From its acknowledged objectives, its tone of leaflet, Fahrenheit 9/11 seems a film militant, even a propaganda film, which is not an infamy, like it proved Dziga Vertov, Mikhaïl Kalatozov or Joris Ivens. No matter what the president of the jury says some, Quentin Tarantino, the reward symbolic system obtained by film with the Festival of Cannes 2004 does nothing but confirm this report. To suppose that this price was given for reasons which have nothing to do with the fact that Quentin Tarantino and Michael Moore have the same producer (Miramax), to affirm, as the author of Kill Bill did it , that Fahrenheit 9/11 was not crowned that for its cinematographic qualities is either a proof of incompetence, or a pure lie, or a foot of cynical nose.
A foot of cynical nose, indeed.
