On the occasion of its 65th birthday, the Cannes film festival pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe by choosing it as effigy of its edition 2012.

Fifty years after her disappearing, Marilyn remains one of the major faces of the worldwide cinema, endless and resolutely contemporary reference of grace, mystery and seduction. 

Each of its appearances awakens imagination. Surprised here in an instant of privacy where mythology joins reality, Marilyn celebrates a birthday which could be that of Cannes. 

It bewitches us of a gesture which becomes promising, breath in the form of a kiss.

This meeting between the perfect incarnation of the glamour and the Festival which is the temple represents an ideal of simplicity and elegance.
