The sex scandal surrounding disgraced ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn on Thursday returned to Cannes as clips of an upcoming film about the affair leaked onto the Internet.
Strauss-Kahn was the talk of the festival two years ago when he was arrested in New York on sexual assault charges.
Within days of the scandal breaking, festival industry figures were eyeing the cinematic possibilities.
"Humanity, power, women, sex, money -- it's got it all," said Jean-Andre Yerles, co-president of the French Screenwriters' Guild, at the time.
