Though very different in their aesthetic — the former is essentially realist, the latter more generic it eventually turns into a kind of western — the films echo one another and Atlantique, for that matter in their tales of the oppressed deciding to fight back against their oppressors. It's an exciting choice, being the debut feature from the French-Senegalese director and actress, who is also the first black woman to have a film in competition at Cannes. This takes a very dark turn when an incident leads the first to become wrapped up mayhem. Over 200,000 people - filmmakers, film fans, studio executives, and star-gazers alike - decend on the Croisette to take part in the the Festival de Cannes, more commonly known to English-speakers as the Cannes Film Festival. Our reaction: All the Tarantino hallmarks are here — the jet-black humour, fine-tuned dialogue, jukebox soundtrack and, yes, bare feet. The notoriously shy American filmmaker has actually been doing press for his more recent projects, so that is a distinct possibility. Elton himself, limelight-phobe that he is, will be on hand for a celebratory post-screening gig.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire was also thought to be a good pick for the Palme, deemed by critics to be one of the strongest films in competition. The 2019 begins May 14 and runs through May 25. Guy Lodge contributed to this report. Set in 1969 on the eve of the Manson murders, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as a Burt Reynolds-esque hunk and his trusty stunt double, both blundering through the dying days of golden age Hollywood. However, Antonio Banderas did at least scoop up the best actor prize for his performance in the film as ageing director Salvador Mallo, loosely based on Almodovar himself.

Our reaction: Loach and Laverty pile small misery upon small misery to incrementally tighten the screw, but only once do they perhaps go too far, teetering towards their own brand of torture-porn as yet another mishap, this one sizeable, plunges the family into debts that demand more hours at work, more toxicity at home. Our reaction: Bacarau often occupies an odd middle ground between action-thriller and study of an impoverished, eccentric community. Gender parity still a long way off When it comes to female representation at the festival, not much has changed since last year's highly publicised protest, headed by Cate Blanchett and Agnes Varda. Inevitably, there is a risk of their being found out, and eventually chaos breaks out in a series of meticulously staged set-pieces. The film tells the story of a young woman from the Senegalese capital of Dakar whose fast-paced lifestyle is upended when her lover suddenly disappears.

From Cannes to a cinema near you A number of films from the Cannes line-up are headed straight for the , which runs from June 5-16, before Australian cinema releases. Perhaps this is an indication of a new, livelier direction for the festival. Armie Hammer and Dakota Johnson bring movie-star wattage to this story of a bartender who snoops through a discarded phone, only to be sent text messages, images and sounds that freeze his blood.

As the two women spend time together, the attraction and intimacy between them grows as well. Her entry centers on the title character, a psychotherapist who is looking to return to writing, her first profession. This year's official selection offered a mix of industry heavy-hitters Terrence Malick, Quentin Tarantino, and Pedro Almodovar and veterans Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, and Mario Bellocchio. While this is his first appearance in competition, Porumboiu has had his films screened at the festival before. Another year, and with many a croissant consumed, another Cannes Film Festival has been and gone.
