    Mads Mikkelsen was in Cannes to promote two projects.

    Cannes Film Festival Closes with Winners --and Losers

    The Cannes Film Festival came to a close with an idiosyncratic set of award winners --which as usual had more to do with the composition of the jury than what critics and media had to say during the rainy ten-day festival on the Cote d'Azur.

    CANNES 2012: Jeff Nichols' MUD

    Some film critics have described Jeff Nichols’s "Mud" as the perfect way to end Cannes 2012, a fun and accessible slice of cinematic Americana. But considering the film’s hammy sentimentality and bogus emotional connections, I can’t think of a more disappointing send off.
