Find here all of our live #CANNES

7:16 p.m. : Older…the lesson of 🎹

7:14 p.m. : ParasiteI admit this film was a real treat !!!

7:13 p.m. : I feel you are teasing 😉 I remind you all the same that the Festival rewarded very watchable films, from the Coen brothers to Quentin Tarantino via Ken Loach and the formidable Parasite three years ago. We were discussing precisely the movie Titanium with my comrade Violaine Jaussent earlier. La Palme 2021 is an experience from which we do not emerge unscathed. And this year the favorite seems to be James Gray, who signed the formidable adventure film The Lost City of Z. Relax, it’s not going to be okay. And at worst, we are never safe from a pun on the name of the Uzbek director in this live 😉

7:10 p.m. : Pierre, if we don’t want to stuff ourselves with a ceremony of ourselves which will reward an Uzbek film (sorry for the example, I love this country as well) of 4h45 which speaks of the shame of loving, of the loneliness of being loved and the sadness of happiness, what do we do?

7:05 p.m. : @Palmipede If these two public service radio stations have undeniable qualities, I would tend to recommend franceinfo, which has proven itself. Or, your passenger reads aloud the live, where comrade Pierre-Louis Caron will come to lend me a hand. Tip at home, you can even sing our starters to the tune of animal carnivalthe anthem of the Festival.

7:03 p.m. : Good evening Pierre, by car how can we follow the Cannes prize list please? French Culture? France Inter?

7:00 p.m. : Which film will receive the Palme d’Or at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival? Before the closing ceremony, our journalists Alix Dauge and Jacky Bornet take stock of this 75th edition and deliver their predictions for the winners at the microphone of Cédric Cousseau. To follow live in our Facebook live.


6:09 p.m. : A little clue about the winners of the Cannes Film Festival? The traditional star barometer published by French Film (and that several jurors told me to look at to guide their decision) has just fallen. It’s the movie Armageddon Time which seems to have the favor of the critics.

4:58 p.m. : My two favorites for the Palme d’or 2022: ARMAGEDDON TIME by James Gray and TRIANGLE OF SADNESS by Ruben Östlund

Verdict tonight at 8:15 p.m. 🤞
#ArmageddonTime #TriangleOfSadness @Festival_Cannes

4:56 p.m. : Here is my PERSONAL prediction on the winners of Cannes 2022.
Screenplay: Leila’s Brothers
Directed by: Holy Spider
Actress: Tang Wai (Decision To Leave)
Actor: Song Kang-ho (Broker)
Grand Prize: Tchaikovsky’s Wife
Palme d’Or: Armageddon Time

4:55 p.m. : My prediction for #Cannes 👀

4:57 p.m. : I didn’t have the chance to be on the Croisette and see the films in competition, so I’m going to relay the predictions of those who were able to watch the twenty or so films presented in competition. Distrust, the 10-minute standing ovation received by the film Closeby the Belgian Lukas Dhont, does not necessarily mean much (we could discuss for a long time the best timing for a film to impose itself in the minds of the jury).

4:53 p.m. : #Cannes : what would be your prognosis Pierre?

4:22 p.m. : @kat It’s a bit hot in the newsroom for a tuxedo, so I favored a summer outfit. And I have six screens in front of me, three computers and three TVs, it will take that for a possible triple live tennis-football-cinema around 9 p.m.!

4:20 p.m. : Hello Pierre ! How many screens in front of you to follow the evening? And a tuxedo, of course 😉

4:46 p.m. : I have only once been told of a rather clumsy attempt by a distributor to have his film appear on the charts. This kind of practice seems to have totally disappeared. In the same way, the possible conflicts of interest between personalities from the world of cinema linked to the same studio or to the same producer have never really been substantiated.

4:18 p.m. : Hello Peter. I read with interest your paper on the juries of Cannes. But nothing on the political, economic stakes, the possible pressures or even attempts of corruption of the large distributors to be nominated. Were you told about it? Is it taboo?

12:22 p.m. : The Queer Palm, which for more than ten years has rewarded a film “dealing with LGBT+ themes or characters, feminists or challenging gender norms”was handed over to joyland, already awarded in the Un certain regard section. The first Pakistani film in the history of the festival, it follows a young man oppressed by the expectations of his family, and who falls in love with a transgender dancer in a cabaret.

12:25 p.m. : Our culture department is continuing its overview of the films competing in the official competition. Anthony Jammot appreciated the panorama of Naples offered by Nostalgia by Mario Martone, who looks at the city through the eyes of a man who returns there after 40 years of exile, but would have liked more “intensity”. The last film presented, A little brother by the French Léonor Serraille, inspires a mixed opinion in Jacky Bornet, for whom this account of the arrival in France of an Ivorian family does not escape “cliches”.


12:21 p.m. : “We awarded the Palme in three minutes.”

Not everyone is lucky enough to have Patrice Leconte and his jury, chaired at the time by Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai. “At lunchtime, the prize list was foldedlaughs the director of tanned. We sunbathed and chatted the rest of the afternoon.” The wind picks up, by Ken Loach, remained engraved in the memory of the jury. But the debates are sometimes more laborious. For all the details, head to this article.

12:19 p.m. : Forget the jurors who have parties and investigate flutes of champagne until the end of the night. All the jurors contacted assured me that they worked hard. Take the writer Zoé Valdès, juror 1998: “At 3 a.m., Martin Scorsese [le président du jury] wake us up. He had mattresses installed, and we reviewed film passages. He took it very seriously.”

12:19 p.m. : “I prepared for it as for an Olympic event.”

The least we can say is that Gabriel Yared was sharp when climbing the steps of the Palais des Festivals. “I quit alcohol and dairy products a month before the opening of the festivalslips the musician. I had in my hands the destiny of directors (…). I had to be mindful.”

12:10 p.m. : You see them on the red carpet, all smiles, between two screenings, then on the stage of the Palais des Festivals on the day of the awards ceremony. But behind the scenes, what life do the jurors lead during this sacred fortnight of cinema? I questioned a dozen jurors on their experience during the fortnight with the most media coverage in cinema. Confidences.


11:01 a.m. : Last night, the winners of the parallel section Un certain regard were unveiled. This is The worst, the first feature film by a duo of young French directors, Lise Akoka and Romane Guéret, which won the main prize. The other awards notably distinguished joylandthe first Pakistani film to be presented at Cannes, and noticed it Rodeowhose lead actress we introduced.

10:56 : The winners of the Cannes Film Festival will be revealed this evening. While waiting for the verdict, our critic Jacky Bornet shares his crush on Closeby the Belgian Lukas Dhont, evocation “shattering” of the friendship of two 13-year-old boys against a background of homophobia.
