Sean Penn’s film ‘The Last Face’ got negative critics reviews after debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. One reviewer even trashed the film as a “stunningly self-important but numbingly empty cocktail of romance and insulting refugee porn”.

The film, starring Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron, Penn’s former girlfriend , is a romance about aid workers in Liberia.
In a poll organised by Screen magazine the movie worst scored only 0.2 in an international critics- worst in the survey’s 13-year history.

Penn, 55, put aside the bad reviews”I stand by the film as it is, and everyone is going to be entitled to their response. I’ve finished the film so it’s not a discussion I’d be of value to, ” he said at a press conference.

The actor, a two-time Oscar winner,   fears his new movie may never be released in the United States after its critical mauling at the Cannes film festival, French media said yesterday. “We don’t have a distributor and the welcome in Cannes hasn’t helped matters, ” Penn said.

“I proudly defend my film. If people don’t get it, I won’t force them, ” the actor-director told the Nice Matin daily about his aid worker love story.

The director of Into The Wind told the daily “For me life continues… but I am really worried for those with money in the project.”

“I am surrounded at this table by performances that I’d pay to see 100 times, ” he said.
