The Cannes Film Festival has been a grand tradition in the world of entertainment not for years, but for a few decades now. The year 2019 marks the 72nd installment of the Cannes Film Festival that was previously known as the International Film Festival or the Festival International du Film among the French. The 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival was launched on 14th May 2019 and went on till May 25th, 2019. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, a world-renowned Mexican filmmaker has been chosen to preside the jury for this year’s festival that made the first Cannes trends story for 2019.
As per the tradition, a wide range of films was put on display during the festival. The opening film of the festival was a zombie comedy film to keep it light and entertaining. It was the work of Jim Jarmusch. The film was entitled “The Dead Don’t Die” and received mixed reviews with an average rating of 6.12/10 on Rotten Tomatoes. It is set to hit the theaters somewhere in the middle of June 2019. “The Specials” has been chosen as the closing film of the Cannes Film Festival 2019. The work of Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano has been announced as a French comedy film. Any further information regarding the film is currently not available for the audience.
Agnes Varda was a French filmmaker who debuted back in 1955 with her critically acclaimed title “La Pointe Courte”. Owing to her sad demise in March 2019, the official poster of Cannes Film Festival 2019 featured her picture as an honor. Incidentally, the picture was also taken while she was filming her debut in the world of theater, “La Pointe Courte”.
While the American presence is still remarkable in this year’s festival as always, a new trend has also emerged in the form of foreign directors especially from Europe who have presented their work in the English language, probably in hopes of making their audience larger than life. After all, who wouldn’t like the work of Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino who has an Oscar to his name, starring American actors like Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, and Michael Caine. Such a change has made the best Cannes trends story for this year so far.
