The Cannes Film Festival got its first taste of full-blown controversy Thursday after a late-night session with director Gaspar Noe's hyper-sexual 3-D tale, "Love".Noe puts himself at the center of the story – the lead character is a budding filmmaker who talks about wanting to make an explicit film about love and sex. Two of the side characters in the film are even called Gaspar and Noe, the latter played by the director himself. He has said he was keen to embrace three dimensions in the film. Around 250 people walked out of the midnight showing, starring Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel, which featured a 10-minute depiction of sodomy and graphic murder and rape scenes.
