Live from Cannes, update on the start of the 77th International Film Festival

In Official Competition, 22 feature films are vying for the Palme d’Or, which will be awarded on Saturday. What are the predictions after the success ofAnatomy of a fall by Justine Triet last year?

He is always difficult to predict the choices of a sovereign jury held in secrecy for 12 days. Especially since there are still highly anticipated films like those of Paolo Sorrentino, Michel Hazanavicius or Mohammad Rassoulof, who fled Iran to be present at Cannes.

We could expect a French Palme d’Or again this yearFor Jacques Audiard and his film Emilia Perez. It is undoubtedly the one that most excited the public during its screening. The improbable story of an ultra-violent drug gang leader who wants to become a woman. At 72 years old, Audiard is still renewing himself, he has created a surprising, original and very creative work. Without ever falling into excess or ridicule, he dares to mix genres, at once musical comedy, thriller and soap-opera in the style of Latin telenovelas.

The president of the jury Greta Gerwig could be sensitive to this variation around the relationship between men and women, she whose film barbie last summer, brought together tens of millions of spectators around the world.
