Keanu Reeves - Crime Spree Cannes – Yet Another Burglary At Film Festival

This year’s Cannes Film Festival is taking the movies a little too far; first we had the jewellery theft – that was right out of a film, then we had the crazed faux gunman, who claimed he had a grenade – that was right out of a film, albeit a comedy, and now we’ve got a Chinese film executive with stolen luggage.

Granted, the Chinese dude with stolen luggage might not be the most heinous of crimes, but it’s a crime nonetheless. And besides, that film exec probably had loads of really important things in his luggage, like money and phones and photos. China Film Group vice president Zhang Qiang bailed out of his scheduled press conference appearance with Keanu Reeves for Man of Tai Chi – the Matrix star’s first film behind the camera. He did so because of the stolen luggage, having found out his bags had been pilfered from his rented accommodation at Pierre & Vacances Résidence, Cannes Beach. "Security in France is so bad, and the [people] are so arrogant," he posted on Weibo, China's version of Twitter, adding, "This film festival is not worth mentioning!"

So it’s bad times Zhang Qiang; bad times for the jewellery theft victims, and bad times for the gunman who didn’t really have a gun, or a grenade, which he said he had. It’s good times for the Coen Brothers, though, who’s film, Inside Llewyn David has caused quite a stir, and is now considered to be the favourite for the Palm D’Or.
