"Cannes Man" Returns With Cinema Libre

"Cannes Man", the 1996 indie comedy feature, directed by Richard Martini is now on DVD from Cinema Libre Studio, starring Seymour Cassel and Francesco Quinn, with cameo appearances by Johnny Depp, Jon Cryer, Benicio del Toro, John Malkovich, Dennis Hopper, Kevin Pollak, Jim Jarmusch and Chris Penn.

"'Frank 'Rhino' Rhinoslavsky' (Quinn) is a part-time cab driver in New York who wants to break into film business. But, he doesn't have anything to offer and just thinks that he can start at the top, as a writer. Opportunity knocks on Frank's door when he goes to the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France to deliver some props to Troma, Inc.

"There he meets 'Sy Lerner' (Cassel), perhaps a bigger loser in the movie business and as each person is interviewed in this mockumentary, he has made a fool out of a lot of industry executives and cost them plenty of money. Lerner makes a bet with his friend that he can take any shmoe off the street and turn them into the biggest success around. And Frank is his shmoe. 'Rhino' is going to create the same success by letting others do all the work..."
