The 75th Cannes Film Festival ends this Saturday evening, and you have planned an aperitif with informed cinephiles?
Twenty-one films will be in competition, and so as not to be totally dropped in the discussion, here is a little reminder of the last ten Palmes d'Or.
Which will allow you to subtly place: "I think it's deserved, yes... but quite frankly, it's not worth the Palme 2012..."
by Julia Ducournau (France)
Attention, trap: do not mention the Palme 2020, the festival did not take place that year, Covid-19 obliges (if you still make the mistake, say that it was a trap to see if your interlocutors follow).
by Bong Joon-ho (South Korea)
