Cannes Movie Competition 2024 highlights: our verdict is in

by Editorial Team

It was a wierd yr on the Cannes Movie Competition. Essentially the most anticipated title landed with a deafening thud and loads of movies had been nice however underwhelming, earlier than a few incognito gems lit up the Croisette and saved the day. 

The movie most critics felt compelled to observe was Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis, a 40-years-in-the-making experimental sci-fi with a $120 million price-tag partially funded by Coppola’s promoting one in all his vineyards (happily he has extra). Adam Driver stars as a priapic, time-pausing architect, Cesar Catalina, whose life’s work is to construct a utopia out of the dystopia that’s the decadent and divided New Rome. This clunky epic left me with none important convictions. Who can hate a grand folly {that a} man bought his winery to fund? But, I can’t say it was effectively made, coherent or actually fascinating, even when it does provide additional proof that Aubrey Plaza can do no incorrect. Right here, she shines as ‘Wall Avenue slut’ Wow Platinum. However, onto the great things!

All We Think about As Gentle

(Picture credit score: Payal Kapadia)

Payal Kapadia’s fiction function debut and the primary Indian movie to play within the Cannes competitors for 30 years is like being enveloped in a dream. It’s such a pleasure to be invited into Kapadia’s perspective that her piercing social commentaries on faith and sophistication virtually go unnoticed as they subtly infuse the anecdotal narrative construction. Kani Kusruti and Divya Prabha star as Prabha and Anu, two nurses who dwell and work collectively within the metropolis of Mumbai. Anu is madly and secretly in love along with her Muslim boyfriend, Shiaz. An early scene juxtaposes her pragmatic dealing with of a feminine affected person with the reverie drummed up as she texts Shiaz, channelling romance by the clouds within the sky. Prabha, in the meantime, exists in a state of suspended animation and craving. Her husband, by an organized marriage, left to work in Germany and has not been in contact for a yr.
