CANNES - Crowds hoping to glimpse the stars on the Cannes festival's red carpet got an eye-popping surprise Saturday as a team of nude Belgian cyclists paraded down the Riviera seafront.

Director Felix van Groeningen and four of his actors straddled bicycles and careened down the croisette and back under warm spring sunshine, in a remake of a scene from "La Merditude des Choses" (The Misfortunates).

The comedy, which tells the story of a family of drunkard brothers, seen through a teenagers' eyes, premiered Saturday at the Directors' Fortnight, one of two high-profile sidebars to the main Cannes film festival.
