One reporter noted that "The 11th Hour" didn't go over well in France:
I hesitated to say before "11th Hour" actually opened how mind-numbingly
dull it was for fear that I would ruin it for those interested in the
subject of global warming. But at Cannes, when the film by Nadia Conners and
Leila Conners Petersen was shown to journalists, nearly the entire room fell
This doesnt bode well for the budding ecologically-consciousness/ environmental awareness genre that the studios were hoping to cash in on.
