Two weeks of directors reveal their strengths – Liberation

For its 54th edition, the last of General Delegate Paolo Moretti, the parallel selection with a call to self-sacrifice announces an attractive program between discoveries, large selections and evaluation signatures.

Now it is the turn of two weeks of directors, a parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival (the last time before the arrival of the new general delegate was headed by Italian Paolo Moretti), to open his program from 18 to 27 May. We can move forward without risking that the vintage of 2022, the combination of already evaluated captions and discoveries, is attractive – and much more sensitive to the life practices of women directors, here 11 of them than the official choice made public there. Several days.

Geographically eclectic films

The expectation is sensitive: after a very delicate adaptation Martin Eden and wonderful Bella and lost, againstthe ball is opened by Pietro Marcello withdrawhis first work in French, announced as “Popular musical-historical tale”.

In the competition for the Golden Palm Branch only last year with Bergman Island, Mia Hansen-Love finally returns through the doors of Fort Week to present Good morning, with Leo Seydou. Also on the radar: Lea Misius’ second feature film five devilswith Adele Exarcopoulos, as well as a new film by Alice Vinokur See Paris againwith Virginia Ethera and Benoit Magimel, return to basics after the American adventure Near. The “Strong presence of French cinema”, according to Paolo Moretti, is confirmed by the presence of a new film by Philippe Focon, Harkis (Release visited the shooting), with which the author Fatima looks at the war in Algeria.

Needless to say, we do not regret finding the Portuguese Joao Pedro Rodriguez (lost sight of, or almost, since ornithologist in 2016), which will try to set fire to the fortnightly Fogo-fátuo (Will-o’-the-wisp). This year’s Golden Coach, an honorary fortnightly award, will be presented to outstanding American director Kelly Reichardt, whose latest film Show will be shown in the competition.
