Cannes Film Festival og Dansk Premiere

flag dkI lørdags var jeg i Cannes da “The Salvation”, som jeg jo var i Sydafrika sidste år og filme, havde verdenspremiere.toke cannes gruppe rød

WOW! Hele byen langs med stranden er Film Festival. Der er reklamer og events for de film, der er med, og trafikken er kaotisk og glem alt om mange mennesker! Der er mere end det! Det er et rent cirkus. Men herre fedt! Alle hoteller langs stranden er plastret til med plakater for filmene og filmselskaberne, og der er før og after parties på barene og hotellerne.

Man skal have kjoler og høje sko og smoking på, hvis man skal ind og se filmene, så hele dagen går folk rundt i festtøj, fordi filmene bliver vist hele dagen igennem. Det giver det hele en fed stemning. Der kom fx. en tank kørende med folk i afterndress kl 10 om formiddagen… Det har jeg ikke set før!

Vi var først forbi Zentropas kontor lige nede i det værste mylder, men fik – heldige som vi altid er –  en parkeringsplads lige neden for.

Kl 22 skulle vi så til pre party på en Vin Bar sammen med alle dem Zentropa havde inviteret, før filmen blev vist kl 00.30 lørdag nat. Det var fedt at møde det meste af crewet fra Sydafrika. Men jeg savnede de to bad ass´es som jeg spillede sammen med i Diligencen Michael Raymond-James og Sean Cameron Michael, som bla. havde skrevet til mig, at han havde teaterforestillinger, og som desværre ikke kunne være der. Og selvfølgelig vores chauffør Sidney, som af gode grunde ikke blev inviteret.

Så blev vi hentet i limo og kørt over til den røde løber ved Filmpalæet. Og det er helt sindsygt så bred den trappe er man går op af, og hvor mange fotografer, og folk der venter på at få et glimt af en af skuespillerne, der kommer for at gå op af den.

Vi stod i næsten et kvarter og fik taget billeder inden vi gik op og ind i biografen. Og så var det stærkt endelig at se det færdige resultat! Det er en fed film, og jeg er super stolt af at være med.toke cannes mads closeup

Idag skal vi til den danske premiere i Imperial,. og jeg skal have min storebror med. Han er en stor filmnørd,, og jeg glæder mig til at høre hvad han synes om filmen.

Og så glæder jeg mig til at høre hvad I synes :D

flag gbLast Saturday I was in Cannes as “The Salvation”, which I was in South Africa last year filming, had its world premiere .

WOW! The whole town along the beach was Film Festival. There are advertisements and events for the film with all over, the traffic is absolutely chaotic and forget about many people! There are more than that! It is a circus. But really great! All hotels along the beach are plastered with posters for films and film companies, and there are pre and after parties at all the bars and hotels.

toke salvation stickYou have to wear dresses and high heels and toxidos, if you are invited to to a screening, so people walk around  in evening dresses all day, because the films are shown throughout the day. It gives the whole place a great atmosphere.

We first went by Zentropa’s office just down in the worst stress of the event, but was – lucky as we always are – a parking space right below.

At 22 hours we went  to the pre party on a Wine Bar along with all the others invited by  Zentropa before the film was shown at 0:30 Saturday night. It was great to meet most of the crew from South Africa. But I missed the two bath ass’es as I “met” at the Stagecoach Michael Raymond – James and Sean Cameron Michael, who had written to me that he was on a play, and unfortunately could not be there. And of course our driver Sidney, who for obvious reasons were not invited.

So we were picked up in the limo and drove to the red carpet at the Film Mansion. And it’s completely insane how wide the stairs are, and how many photographers and people waiting to get a glimpse of one of the actors who come to walk them.toke salvation gruppe levring

We stood for about fifteen minutes and had our pictures taken before we went up into the theater. And it was awesome finallyto see the finished result! It’s a great movie, and I’m super proud to be in it.

To night it´s the the Danish premiere at Imperial, and I bring my big brother Mark. He’s a big movie geek, and I look forward to hear what he thinks of the film.

And I look forward to hear what you think : D

EUROVISION AND BASIM

toke eurovisionflag dkWOW! Så du Eurovision igår? Eller… Så du Eurovision hele sidste uge?

Det var et helt fantastisk show, synes du ikk?!

Basim havde inviteret mig med ud og se det, og det var en fantastik oplevelse. Vi sad pænt langt tilbage og havde et perfekt overblik over hele scenen og salen, og det var bare noget af det mest gennemførte jeg nogen sinde har set!

toke basimVi blev hentet og kørt hele vejen ind, så vi slap for det meste af virvaret uden om. Der skulle 11.000 tilskuer ind, og så var der lige alle dem, der skulle få det hele til at klappe.

Jeg synes det var meget forskellige bidrag, men jeg kan kunne uanset hvad bedst lide Basim. Den var up tempo og han er bare cool på scenen, så jeg jeg ville have stemt på ham hvis jeg havde kunne. Men blandt de 10 bedste er absolut også fantastisk. Han er bare sej, dygtig og super cool!

Men ærligtalt… Hvis han havde vundet, var DR gået bankerot, og de har vist brugt rigeligt allerede. Måske kommer de til at genudsende en masse af de ting jeg har lavet sammen med dem, og Hollys med. Det ville jo ikke gøre noget :D

Nå, men det ville ellers have været sjawt hvis Rusland havde vundet… Så havde Putin fået noget andet at tænke på, og måske blive nød til at rykke nogle personlige grænser…toke euro mustach

Men det bliver nu også sjovt at se hvor langt skæg Ms. Wurst har næste år.

flag gbWOW! So did you watch Eurovision yesterday ? Or … more like  all last week ?

It was a fantastic show, don´t you think ? !

Basim had invited me to come and see it live and it was a fantastic experience. We sat nicely far back and had a perfect view of the entire stage and hall, and it was just one of the most shows I have ever seen !

We were picked up drowe all the way in, so we escaped most of the tangle around out side. There were 11,000 spectators, and then there was all those who made it all happen. That´s a lot of people!

I think it was very different contributions, but no matter what I still like  Basims the most. It was up tempo and he’s just cool on stage, and I would have voted for him if I could. But to end up among the top 10 is absolutely fantastic too. He’s just great, talented and super cool!

But to be honest … If he had won, the “Danish Radio”( our public  broadcast company) would go bankrupt , and they have used plenty of money already. Maybe they – to save money – are going to show some of the things I’ve made for them, and with Hollys too. It would be nice : D

Well, it would otherwise have been a lot of fun if Russia had won … Then Putin would get something else to think about, and perhaps be forced to move some personal boundaries …

But it is also fun going to be fun to see how long a beard Ms . Wurst has next year.

Chill
