Launched yesterday, the 67th Cannes Film Festival promises to give us 12 days dedicated to the beautiful of the arts - the art of cinema. On this occasion, I hasten to acquaint you with the most anticipated films of the festival, each in its own good.
This year it was decided to consider the work in 1800, but the show in Cannes only 50 of them. Of course, all the audience's attention will be riveted to the main competition program films that will compete for the main prize of the festival "Palme d'Or", but I also wish to draw attention to the films presented in the program "Un Certain Regard" and "Midnight show».
Director: David Cronenberg
Comedy and psychological drama, which employs half a dozen of Hollywood's brightest stars, promises to reveal to us all the hidden secrets and the secrets of this very Hollywood. Who of us is not curious to know what is really living The Dream Factory, when the spotlight goes out? And so in the performance of such a controversial and provocative David Cronenberg, who promises to show us the "astute and funny movie," it would be doubly exciting.
Director: Olivier Assayas
Another movie about a movie on our list. In the center of the history of the once famous actress Juliette Binoche by that, that not wishing, suddenly back in the past. Actually, this film meets demanding requirements of Cannes on the part of the story - here and complicated history of life and the inner torment and lesbian impulses in the best European tradition. For Assayas this film is special - it is the first picture of the director in English, and the leading role in it, besides Binoche, performed by Hollywood actress - Kristen Stewart and Chloe Moretz.
Director: Andrei Zvyagintsev
The new work of the "European" Russian director. The plot of the film, the script for which was written in a period of 4 years, a closely guarded secret, known only that the basis for the story was the tale of Job, who humbly accepted all of life's trials and hardships. The story takes place in modern Russia, and the title role in the film by Aleksey Serebryakov. The picture presented in the main competition program, and this is perhaps the main achievement of the Russian cinema in recent years.
Director: Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling's directorial debut in the fantasy genre with Eva Mendes in the title role. The plot is convoluted and unordinary film (though it is not uncommon for films of this genre) and tells about the journeys into secret worlds. The film represented the second largest program Cannes "Un Certain Regard" and, according to knowledgeable people, has all the chances to win. By the way, Gosling in the movie did not play, so his admirers have to settle for his directorial, scenario and the producer talents.
"Two days, one night»
Directed by: Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne
Owners of several "Palme d'Or" and a dozen less important film festival award Dardenne brothers will present to the audience a picture with more than mundane plot: to keep a job, a woman needs to persuade his colleagues to abandon bonuses. As the name implies, this heroine Marion Cotillard have only two days and one night, and at the end of the film we are probably waiting for a tragic end, a lack of isolation in general - in the best traditions of European cinema. The film is presented in the main program.
Director: Bennett Miller
Bennett Miller in Hollywood called the hope of American cinema - among his works "Capote" and "the man who changed everything", marked by numerous awards and nominations. Miller is the first time his work at Cannes, and his debut can already be considered a success - the list of movies main competition program testifies to this. The plot of "foxcatcher" is based on real events that occurred in 1996 when billionaire John DuPont shot Olympic champion Dave Schultz and within two days was negotiating with the police from his home. The film employed Steve Carell (sacrificed for the sake of appearance roles), Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. Judging by the trailer, Carell for the first time managed to create on-screen a spectacular dramatic fashion, but due to the fact that the premiere of the film was postponed from December 2013 to 2014, the film was out of the race for the "Oscar» 2014.
Director: Bertrand Bonello
Not to be confused with the film "Yves Saint Laurent" Jalil Lespera, which premiered recently! This is another story about the great couturier, whose role this time played the handsome Gaspard Ulliel.

But despite all the obstacles, the picture was completed, and will fight for the top prize Film Festival in the main competition program.
