“Written by Julia Ducournau, the film opens on an airport where custom inspectors pick up a young man with a bruised face. He claims his name to be Adrien Legrand, a child who disappeared ten years ago. For Vincent, his father, this marks the end of a long nightmare and he brings him home. Simultaneously, a series of gruesome murders places the region under pressure. Alexia, model in a car showroom, has all the characteristics of the ideal victim.”

THE FRENCH DISPATCH

The French Dispatch (2020) | Wes anderson movies posters, Anderson movies,  Wes anderson poster

"A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in "The French Dispatch Magazine.""

Wes Anderson is up to his old less than great tricks. It's more than doubtful that "The French Dispatch" will win the Palme but at least there's a place for silly entertainment in the Competition.

PETROV'S FLU

Petrov's Flu' Trailer: Visually Striking Pandemic Comedy By Russian  Filmmaker Kirill Serebrenninkov Premieres At Cannes

"A day in the life of a comic book artist and his family in post-Soviet Russia. While suffering from the flu, Petrov is carried by his friend Igor on a long walk, drifting in and out of fantasy and reality."

Russian auteur Kirill Serebrennokov returns to Cannes behind his 2016 Un Certain Regard entry "The Student," with an ostensibly more humorous, albeit black sense of humor. "Petrov's Flu" could be catching on the Croisette for its celebrated premiere at Cannes.
