The classics return to Cannes. A festival without Tarantino?
The jury of the Main Competition of the 72nd edition of the Cannes International Film Festival under the leadership of Mexican master Alejandro Inarrit will not have a difficult task. The festival organizers have announced the program of this year's edition of the most prestigious film festival in the world and there are many indications that the fight for the Golden Palm will be fierce.
The Main Competition has been dominated by the latest films of well-known and respected filmmakers. Although Jim Jarmusch returns to the Cote d'Azur with the twelfth film, he will open the festival for the first time. His "The Dead Don't Die" is at the same time the eighth title in the achievements of an American who will fight for the Golden Palm.
On the screen story of the fight against zombies, we will see stars who have worked with Jarmusch repeatedly, including Tom Waits (sixth joint film), Bill Murray (fourth joint film), Steve Buscemi (sixth joint film), Iggy Pop (third joint film), Tilda Swinton (fourth joint film) or Chloe Sevigny (third joint film).
Ken Loach also returns to Cannes. The British classic for the 14th time was among the nominees for the most important Cannesian awards. The winner of two Golden Palms will show "Sorry We Missed You" this year.
"In his latest film, Loach tells the story of a family trying to make a life in a small town in the north of England. Young spouses, Ricky and Abbie Turner, work hard to secure a better life for themselves and their children. Ricky is fed up with dealing with dishonest employers and minimum salary - he decides to risk and invest in his own business. The family spends all their savings on buying a van and Ricky starts working on his own. The initial euphoria and sense of freedom give way to doubts. It turns out that independence has its price and it is increasingly difficult for Turners stay afloat "- the Polish distributor of the film reads.
The brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne will also compete for their third Golden Palm. This time they will present "Le Jeune Ahmed" ("Young Ahmed").
The film - as the Polish distributor announces - is an autobiographical picture of "a few days in the life of an outstanding director - his passions, doubts and secrets - without embellishments, only honesty and truth."
