Cannes Film Festival: Which films could seduce Vincent Lindon and the members of his jury?

6:12 p.m .: Still no stars in sight, but it won't be long

The stars are still waiting.

Normal, they are always the longest to prepare.

On the French side, we are sure to see the team of

Coupez

, the film by Michel Hazanavicius, which opens the festival: Romain Duris, Bérénice Béjo, Grégory Gadebois, Jean-Pascal Zadi... And on the side of the Hollywood stars, we expect Forest Whitaker, who will receive a palme d'honneur.

But not Tom Cruise, who doesn't arrive until tomorrow.

Nor Virginie Efira, who is already in the room and who is rehearsing her speech after having held the festival's social networks all day.

A DAY WITH VIRGINIE EFIRA!

THE TAKE OVER EVENT is on!

This May 17, the actress is hosting the Festival's Facebook and Instagram accounts in stories until her arrival on stage to present the Opening Ceremony of the 75th Cannes Film Festival!

Another certainty, as required by protocol, is the jury of Vincent Lindon who will close the march before the start of the ceremony.

6:02 p.m .: Already a lot of people around the red carpet

Despite the oppressive heat, there are crowds around the red carpet for at least two hours.

It must be said that there are people on the Croisette.

The hotels are almost all full, and tourism professionals are already expecting record figures.

The Carlton is closed for renovations, but new party venues have opened.

To know the details, I invite you to follow the advice of our correspondent on the Côte d'Azur, Fabien Binacchi.

5:55 p.m.: One hour before the ceremony, place for the traditional climb of the steps

Already, our special correspondent, Caroline Vié, is stationed on the Croisette to make you experience the best moments of this anniversary edition.

I don't think she says things to France 2 that she hasn't already told you on the

20 Minutes

website .
