    Cannes Review: Death Lingers & Lifts In Thoughtful 'Miele'

    If Michael Haneke's "Amour" presented death as a sobering inevitability, one that will test the bounds of our ability to love, actress Valeria Golino has a slightly more nuanced perspective in her directorial debut "Miele."

    Cannes Review: Asghar Farhadi's 'The Past' A Mostly Powerful Look At The Messiness Of Stasis

They can't hear each other, but through gestures and mouthed words, they can get the gist of what the other is saying, but between them is an immovable object that prevents a full understanding of what ...

    Cannes Virgin Festival Diary 1: From 'Gatsby' to 'Heli' and Back

    Cannes Review: Being 'Young & Beautiful' Isn't Easy In Francois Ozon's Latest

    "No one's serious at seventeen," goes a line from Rimbaud's poem of the same name, and it's just one of a handful of confused messages in Francois Ozon's "Jeune Et Jolie (Young And Beautiful)," a flesh-filled exploration of teenage sexuality. Ozon, no stranger to provocative imagery, takes off the r...
