• Vincent Lindon announced at the start of the festival that he wanted to pay tribute "to those who live in a difficult situation".

  • Three films seem to correspond to this profession of faith: "Tori and Lokita", "A little brother" and "Close", which it is hard to imagine not appearing on the list.

But which films will Vincent Lindon and his jury be able to win at the closing of the Cannes Film Festival?

During the jury's press conference at the start of the event, the president announced that he wanted to "be worthy, in tribute to those who are going through difficult days".

As such, three films are distinguished by their societal theme specific to seduce the actor and the members of his jury.

Tori and Lokita

from the Dardenne brothers tick all the boxes.

The ordeals suffered by two young migrants confronted with what is most sordid in the human soul have something to thrill the jury.

But it is also possible that the latter prefers to favor the film of a new talent.

A little brother

of LĂ©onor Serraille (winner of the Camera d'or in 2017 for

Jeune femme

) follows with great strength and modesty the distress of an African mother who landed in France with her two sons in the 1980s and her evolution in over the years to find its place.

Close

by Lukas Dhont (winner of the 2018 Camera d'Or for

Girl

), with its poignant story, is our big favourite.

This film shook the Croisette by telling how a teenager suddenly matures following a tragic event.

The young Eden Dabrine, dazzlingly accurate, is the revelation.

The verdict is expected from 8:30 p.m. live on France 2.
