Cannes kicks off to controversy

This year’s Cannes Film Festival got off to a controversial start with Pedro Almodovar’s Bad Education as the opening film.

The Spanish director said about his film, which features paedophile priests: “It’s not necessary for my film to be anti-clerical, the church is going through its own problems, for example destroying itself when it speaks to the press. At least in Spain the church’s worst enemy is itself.”
