JOHNNY DEPP IN THE OPENING FILM, MAÏWENN'S JEANNE DE BERRY

A stellar lineup (as usual) includes new films by Martin Scorsese, Todd Haynes, and Wes Anderson

Cannes. First look.
The festival is off and running and Johnny Depp got an ovation for playing a French king for a few minutes, his "comeback." There are new films by Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Jonathan Glazer, Todd Haynes. Harrison Ford is to be seen doing his last turn in the "Indiana Jones" franchise. This probably will be Ken Loach's last film; but Wim Wenders'? Will it be his?

There are also big international names such as Aki Kaurismäki, Nanni Moretti, Catherine Breillat, Alice Rohrwacher. There's the Turkish heavyweight Nuri Bilge Ceylan, the remarkable Marco Bellocchio, who's 83, the cultish Takeshi Kitano. A more sOlemn Japanese master, back for the first time since PARASITE won the Palme d'Or in 2019, IS Hirokazu Kore-eda, whose new film “Monster” is the first film he has shot in Japan since his Palme winner “Shoplifters.” Martin Provost, who has celebrated midwifery and the towering wartime female FRench writer Violette Leduc, not has one about the universally loved painter of interiors, PIerre Bonnard. Lisando Alsnso who produced the haunting, unforgettable LOS MUERTOS, is back. The challenging and powerful UK black auteur Steve McQueen has something that runs four hours. Almodóvar has something very short! Con Ethan Hawke. And much, much more.

But maybe the best of Cannes is the films from names we don't know yet. Because what comes in this most hallowed and exciting of the world's cinematic festival venues always matters.

Maïwenn's movie was inspired by Sofia Coppola's where the character of Jenne du Berry was played by Asia Argento. Here Maïwenn plays her herself. It's also got Louis Garrel and Melvil Poupaud in it. It may be mediocre, but it is also sumptuous. TRAILER.
