La Vie d'AdeleThe winner of the 66th Cannes Film Festival is La Vie d’Adele (Blue is the Warmest Colour). The most coveted prize in film after the Oscars went to this three hour emotional tale of love and sexuality by Abdellatif Kechiche that centers on a 15 year old girl (Adele Exarchopoulos) and her lover (Lea Seydoux) and is the first time in the festivals history that the Palm d”Or has gone to a French film in two consecutive years. It is also notable that this steamy lesbian epic has won the highest award on the day when hundreds of thousands of demonstrators marched in Paris on Sunday to protest France's recent legalization of same-sex marriage.

However, it is obviously the yachts that are most important here.  Our team here at Boatbookings choose a yacht for every film, yet what were our winners? Which yacht got our Palm d'Or?
After some intense debate, we narrowed the field down to just three yachts. WILD THYME, BLACK AND WHITE and CALLISTO. Chosen for their gorgeous lines, high performance and supreme luxury, they would provide any guests with a charter of a lifetime, yet which one would edge the other out to win Boatbookings Palm d'Or?
And the winner for Best Yacht in the Cannes Film Festival is…..
BLACK AND WHITE as it was ended up sweeping away the field and taking the prize as our favorite yacht from this series of Black and Whiteblogs marking each day of the Cannes Film festival. Her gorgeous lines, immaculate and luxurious interior, fantastic outdoor spaces for sunbathing or al fresco dining and superb crew propelled her to victory.

Cannes Film Festival, Day 12 – Zulu – Our Yacht Nominee:CALLISTO!

Zulu_1The glamour and excitement of the Cannes Film Festival is such that the final day is already upon us! The most prestigious film festival in the world has passed in a whirlwind of celebrities, fast cars, and flashing sequins. Yet it is also never one to go out with a whisper. The final day of the 66th Festival de Cannes will close with a screening of the ZULUthriller Zulu by Jerome Salle featuring acting heavy weights Orlando Bloom who we know from films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, Ghost Dog).

It is an adaptation of the fantastic novel of the same name by Caryl Ferey which was awarded the Grand prix de litterature policiere in 2008. This powerful film sees cops, Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker team up in an attempt to bring the murderer of an 18 year old girl to justice in a South Africa still rife with racial and social tensions from the apartheid.

Taking inspiration from Orlando Blooms Pirates of the Caribbean, our yacht nominee for Zulu is CALLISTO! With William Turners affinity for sailing we thought that this stunning Nautors Swan 80 would be the perfect way to relax CALLISTOand unwind after two weeks of attending the hectic Cannes Film Festival.
