I spent the morning trying to get all my pieces to camera filmed; rushing
from the beach full of sunbathers to the Palais, where the movies are shown,
up to the Croisette, where very suntanned ladies carry tiny dogs in their
handbags, and back to the beach again.
But we finally got it all done and, with sunburnt shoulders, I jumped on a bus with a crowd of other journalists heading for one of the most exclusive hotels on the Riviera - the Hotel Du Cap - to interview the cast of Shrek 2.
