Can-can dancers and Nicole Kidman greeted crowds Wednesday during opening night merriment at the annual moviemaking rite of spring, the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France. The 12-day fest kicked off with Kidman in the $50 million musical "Moulin Rouge." Other highlights of this 54th edition of the festival are expected to be Francis Ford Coppola's re-cut version of his 1979 masterpiece, "Apocalypse Now." Festival jury president, Norwegian actress Liv Ullman, said at a press conference before the parties began: "We don't have to make movies for the intellect. I would like us to choose films that talk with talent, emotion and professionalism."
