    The biggest festival is back soon, with the line up announced next Thursday (13th April).

    So as we are in the habit of predicting things, what are we thinking will be opening, closing, premiering, and most importantly, competing, at the Croisette this year?

    Claire´s Camera by Hong Sang-soo
    Dark Glasses by Claire Denis

    Beside my beloved Sofia Coppola (it would be time to finally see a great film directed by her after some mixed results), I am SO pumped up for Haneke. At the time Amour came out I didn’t know him well and now he’s one of my favourite directors. Not all of his films are extraordinary (many of them are to be honest), but not a single one is uninteresting.

    “Downsizing” and Alexander Payne will be there unless post-production won’t be finished in time.

    Claire´s Camera by Hong Sang-soo

    This just HAS to be in the official selection. Sang-soo + Huppert + shot during last year’s festival.

    It looks like we have a ton of lscar contenders from Cannes this year. I don’t think we had many last year. The only one I can think of is Loving. There was probably more that I’m forgetting.

    You’re forgetting Elle. Loving and Elle made the Best Actress slate this year look less pedestrian.

    I’d be shocked of Redoubtable isn’t there. It just reeks of Cannes.

    Also TOni Erdmann and The Salesman. The Red Turtle won Un Certain Regard. Hell or high water was shown out of competition, and so was Zucchini. Two of the shorts too.

    Latest film from the director of Mustang, which screened in the Directors Fortnight at Cannes, and was later Oscar nominated:

    “A South Central recluse helps a woman’s working-class mother during the 1992 civil unrest in Los Angeles.”

    Starring Daniel Craig and Halle Berry, and is in English.

    I think it’s almost certain that Huppert will be all over the coming awards season: Claire’s Camera, Happy End, Madame Hyde. Personally I’m more excited about Haneke’s Happy End. Amour was not my favourite of the past season, but I did love his direction.

    Kechiche’s Mektoub Is Mektoub may not debut a top Cannes after all.

    French publication Le Point (via The Playlist) reveals that any chance of the film hitting Cannes this year have been squashed as the project has expanded beyond its initial plans.

    The paper indicates that Kechiche has turned the project into a two-film familial saga now respectively titled “The Die Is Cast” and “Pray for Jack”.

    This has led to complications with the financiers as Kechiche’s contract is to deliver one film – so now everyone is going to court.

    Should Kechiche win, he then wants to show both pictures at Cannes next year. Kechiche is also already working on two more films to shoot this summer titled “Lamb Of God” and “Sister Marguerite”.
