Adapting Denis Johnson, Claire Denis debuts 'Stars at Noon'
France Cannes 2022 Stars at Noon Photo Call Director Claire Denis poses for photographers at the photo call for the film 'Stars at Noon' at the 75th international film festival, Cannes, southern France, Thursday, May 26, 2022. But Denis, the 76-year-old French filmmaking legend of “Beau Travail," “White Material” and “35 Shots of Rum,” felt strongly about making “Stars at Noon." The film drew a mixed reception from critics at Cannes, but it's a characteristically Denis film, languid and seductive, enlivened by a freewheeling, charismatic performance by Qualley. “I think for Denis, love is the main problem of his life," Denis says, sipping an espresso. ___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAP___For more Cannes Film Festival coverage, visit: https://apnews.com/hub/cannes-film-festival.wftv.com
