Here’s just a few of the great Cannes Film festival picks
Socialisme by the late, great Jean-Luc Godard, pioneer of the French New Wave Film movement. The film is described as a symphony in three movements: “Such things”, “Our Europe” and “Our humanities” and was an official selection at the Cannes Film Festival (2010)
Jane par Charlotte by Charlotte Gainsbourg with Jane Birkin. Over time, actress Charlotte Gainsbourg began to look at her mother, Jane Birkin, in a way she never did before, overcoming a shared reserve. Mother and daughter explore their relationship. The film was an official selection at the Cannes Film Festival (2021) and won a Best Documentary Film Award at the César Awards (2023).
The weeks before, during and after the Cannes Film Festival (16-27 May 2023) these and other great films will be showcased on TV5MONDE
And don’t miss the great profiles of some of French cinema’s biggest legends:
Le Mystère Bardot explores the life of Brigitte Bardot. An extraordinarily photogenic actress, a tumultuous love life, an absolute sex symbol of the 1950s and 1960s, an actress who left her mark on her era. Plus the career of charismatic actor Jean-Paul Belmondo goes under, or rather before, the lens.
Documentaries, films and biographies galore plus a daily round up of news and exclusive interviews live from the festival.
It’s next best thing to being there!
