    Thanks! I hope you don’t mind me asking unrelated questions once in a while, I love reading you.

    Oh, well thank you! I don’t mind at all, though I may not be sharing very popular sentiments… lol.

    It Must Be Heaven First Reactions

    Eric Kohn: It’s always a delight to see Elia Suleiman back in action. The meta charmer IT MUST BE HEAVEN finds him pitching this very movie, and it’s another endearing slapstick statement on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    Charles Bramesco: Phenomenal stuff here, more Tatiesque wide-shot comedy now brought into the world beyond Palestine (which reminds our man a whole lot of Palestine). The New York bit is hilarious. Crowd very receptive, multiple applause breaks

    Alisha Rouse: It Must Be Heaven was beautifully charming, moving and the first film of the fest to make me snort laugh. Big achievement

    Joseph Fahim: Elia Sulieman’s ‘It Must Be Heaven’: really good but not great, and certainly not his best work

    Victor Blanes Pico: And Suleiman came to conquer us with his biting vision of the world. IT MUST BE HEAVEN or the mirror of who we are through small moments of lucidity in three very different cities and cultures. The gag as means and end. Sparkly.

    Christian Monggaard: Elia Suleimans It Must Be Heaven – where the director himself is the lead – is a really funny and absurd, Roy Andersson-esque film about human folly and the wonderful and weird world we all inhabit, and at the same time a tribute to Palestine

    Diego Lerer: Great movie Elia Suleiman, IT MUST BE HEAVEN. Perhaps the festival has saved the best til last

    Florent Boutet: What a funny and tender film that It Must Be Heaven is. Finishing on this light and intelligent humor of hope and benevolence signs off a marvelous epilogue to a festival that was no less so.

    Thierry Cheze: Elia Suleiman findsa poetic grace of divine intervention with It Must Be Heaven. Applause during, and in the credits, he has conquered the Lumière.

    Pavel Sladky: The skeptical Palestinian clown Elia Suleiman returns after 10 years with a melancholic dark comedy about what defines home for us and how to live in the space of empathy and poetry. Beautiful, funny, clever.

    Javier Zurro: Brilliant closing with ‘It Must Be Heaven’ a comedy (yes, it can be) about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and a hopeful cry

    Sibyl First Reactions

    Guy Lodge: Putting Justine Triet’s SIBYL at the end of the Cannes competition is pretty perfect scheduling, since it’s basically dessert: light, silky, satisfying. I keep being impressed anew by Virginie Efira’s growing range and poise, and Sandra Huller is a hoot.

    Alex Billington: A convoluted attempt at mixing a story about a mother, a filmmaking story, and lessons on life from a writer/psychologist who is actually as lost as everyone she treats. Very meh. Hüller as a fraught, bitter film director is the best part about this film.

    Nivrae: bof. Very Cannois with sex scenes to shock the old. Overall not intense enough. The actors are good but the film did not catch me at all and seemed terribly long.

    Marine Bienvenot: Film-therapy, Sibyl strays a little on the slopes of Stromboli but the journey in the traumas, failures, fears and weaknesses of Virginia Efira is upsetting. That it is sometimes hard to live with oneself

    Cedric Succivalli: BONG unseen (but I should see PARASITE tomorrow hopefully) I am torn between Pedro and Justine for my Palme d’Or.

    Marine Bordone: Wonderful Sybil. Justine Triet confirms the extent of her talent in the heart of toxic relationships. Her richest film in cinema. Virginie Efira is once again above all

    Victor Lepesant: Absolutely fascinated by Sibyl, an unclassifiable Justine Triet film, a Lynchian obsession, a Trufaldian psychological complexity, a Godardian formal audacity (a confusing and visionary montage) and a troupe of actors (Effira in the lead) formidable

    Gautier Roos: Good, but despite a lot of beautiful things, Sybil leaves an unfinished taste. The mental puzzle announced is not one: it’s just an accumulation of memories more or less inspired. As like Victoria, sophisticated writing falters over time

    Ruben Murillo Rosa: Sybil is a very cheap soap opera that has an actress who does not stop trying the whole movie, and that due to the lack of any protagonists who could muster something. I do not think that the montage and the script help to understand the story better. Expendable

    Laura Enjolvy: The film is well executed, Virginie Efira plays really well. But for me he lacks soul. I did not feel anything, I never went back to the movie. Too bad.

    Josephine Leroy: Completely caught up in the dramatic whirlwind of Sibyl by Justine Triet, with a just brilliant Virginie Efira a disoriented psychoanalyst. Reminiscent of John Cassavetes’ cinema. Dizzying

    These are difficult every year, but I’m thinking It Must Be Heaven for the Palme, Portrait of a Lady on Fire for Grand Prix, Parasite for Jury Prize, a tie
    in Director for Atlantique and Bacurau, Banderas for Actor and Valerie Pachner for Actress, and Sibyl for Screenplay. However, the consensus is saying that the Palme is either Almodovar or Sciamma, and that Efira (actress from Sibyl) takes the acting Prize. If Almodovar is our Palme winner, actor goes to Parasite or The Traitor. Dolan and Porumboiu can also win Screenplay. In 2011, Tarantino put Kelly Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoof in a Worst of the Year list. She’s now on the jury. I have a feeling that could hut OUATIH’s chances, though a shared acting prize for Leo and Brad would be pretty cool (Waltz won there for Inglorious Basterds).

    I’m thinking Pierfrancesco Favino for Actor and Adele Haenel for Actress (?) but Efira makes sense. Almodovar is likely to win something. But prediction for the rest is impossible.

    Best-received movie (from festival-goers) don’t necessarily win Palme, they tend to win FIPRESCI instead, so I’m not expecting Portrait of a Lady on Fire as Palme D’or winner.

    Odd choices up to now? The Dardennes had middling reviews for their movie.

    So I guess parasite and portrait of a lady on fire are the top contenders for foreign film right now until the Venice film festival comes up. I really hope parasite will be the first Korean film nomination at the Oscars and not be snubbed like burning. Also Emily Beecham was the biggest surprise win. Did anybody see her movie was she deserving?

    Still baffling how Burning went away EMPTY HANDED, let alone didn’t win the Palme last year (though I do love Shoplifters)
