Cannes '08: Moment of Zen -- So you think you can dance, France?

May 22, 2008 | 11:10 am

It seems every exhibitionist in the world is in Cannes this week trying to make a Euro out of 50 cents.

The daily scene on the Croisette is madcap. We see large men dressed as babies for no apparent reason, one peddler who poses his cat and dog on a pillow as if they're in deep embrace, the Cannes in a Van screenings, and European street dancers we taped yesterday. The clash of hi-lo culture can get even more extreme at night.

My favorite part of the video below is when the miniature street sweeper moseys past, although the man carrying cardboard boxes on his shoulder maintains whatever there may be of this Youtubular clip's transitory appeal. -- Sheigh Crabtree
