#Cannes: The 15 Must-See Films

Competition. Out of Competition. Official Selection. Director’s Fortnight. Critics Week. ACID. Cannes Classics. Obviously there are way too many movies screening in Cannes. Yet, the fest feels manageable. In part because I am simply so excited to see so many movies that are screening over the next ten days.

Here are the 15 films that I am most excited about! (in order of most anticipated):

“Hors Satan,” directed by Bruno Dumont

“La Piel Que Habito,” directed by Pedro Almodovar

“Miss Bala,” directed by Gerardo Naranjo

“The Tree of Life,” directed by Terrence Malick

“Sleeping Beauty,” directed by Julie Leigh

“Melancholia,” directed by Lars Von Trier

“Oslo, 31. August,” directed by Joachim Trier

“Les Bien-Aimes,” directed by Christophe Honore

“Chronique d’un été,” directed by Jean Rouche (Cannes Classics)

“La Guerre est Declaree,” directed by Valerie Donzelli

“Le Gamin Au Velo,” directed by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

“Return,” directed by Liza Johnson
