Tom Cruise, Baz Luhrmann and George Miller – the star attractions of the Cannes Film Festival 2022


Wonderful Silver (whose previous film Summer, about a Russian rock band, was a personal favorite) faces competition from some of the biggest names in arthouse cinema. David Cronenberg promises to outrage the nervous public with his new horror for the body Crimes of the future. Pak Chan Wook, a scene with an octopus eating The old man was a real outrage, also in competition with a mystery called Care decision.

Former owner of the Golden Palm Branch Hirakazu Koreeda (Shopkeepers2018) competes with Brokermade in South Korea, and Ruben Ostlund (Area2019) enters Triangle of sorrowshowing Woody Harrelson as a Marxist skipper who takes some fashionistas on an ill-fated cruise, a kind of grim Scandinavian version Gilligan Island. Even Jerzy Skalimowski, 84, is once again in competition with a film called EO.


What none of these mature men will face is a lot of competition from women. In 2018 the festival
supreme Thierry Fremo signed a promise of gender parity after women from the film industry – led by that year’s jury president Cate Blanchett and the late French Nouvelle Vague director Agnes Ward – held a rally in black on the Croisette promenade in support of women in cinema.

Four years later – and a year after Julia Ducurna became the second woman to receive the Palme d’Or in 74 years of the festival with Titanium – Only three women directors were on the original list of 18 competing titles: Claire Danny The stars are noonKelly Reichardt Appearance up and Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi Always young. Two more have since been added, breaking the previous record of four films and increasing women’s representation in official sections to 23 percent. This is a big jump from the constant 16 percent over the past few years, but far from half.

Thanks to the confluence of blockbusters, the Australian representation jumped much more. Justin Kurzel Nitram shown in last year’s competition, Australia’s only film
festival program; the previous year, only one Australian short film was shown on the sidebar of Critics’ Week, making it a comparative success this year.

George Miller Three thousand years of longingThe premiere of the film starring Idris Elba will also take place in Cannes.

Lurman Elvis has always been a festival-arrival; among other merits, it will take Tom Hanks to the red carpet. The epic fantasy of George Miller Three thousand years of longing is a surprisingly extravagant two-handed, with Tilda Swinton in the role of a scientist facing a gin played by Idris Elba, and a notorious budget of $ 60 million ($ 87 million). Both play out of competition.


By right, they were to be shown alongside Australian director Andrew Dominic Blonde, with Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe. Fremo was unusually loud in his desire to program it, but this was prevented by a long dispute between the festival and Netflix, which supported the production and refused to allow its first screening, as required by the rules of the festival.

Another Australian feature is a show on the official sidebar of Un Certain Regard, however: the mystery of Thomas M. Wright Stranger, with Joel Edgerton and British actor Sean Harris. And at La Cinef (formerly Cinefondation), the official student film competition from around the world, an AFTRS student Ruby Challenger’s MumLife is one of 16 selected. In this competition, in particular, 10 women directors and only six men. Perhaps a sign of the times to come?
