From Cannes: ‘Girl’ En Pointe, Slightly Less On Point

While “Girl” begins as a stunning body of work, it stumbles somewhere in its empathy, and doesn’t quite recover to stick the landing.

Cannes Par Jour: Day 2

Oh, what’s that? A yellow press badge? I don’t… I’m afraid I don’t see anything… Hmm… Did you hear something, Jacques? Mm… I don’t think so? Maybe the light Riviera breeze? Or perhaps a Chanel No. 5-scented fart slipped out of Dame Helen Mirren over there? Hmm.

'Filles de Soleil' Still

From Cannes: ‘Les Filles Du Soleil’ (‘Girls of the Sun’) A Heart-Rending Picture of Female Resistance and Resilience

'Gräns' Still
Film

From Cannes: ‘Gräns’ (‘Border’) an Eccentric Fable on Fitting In

The end result is, like the film’s protagonist, a strange hybrid of several genres that is one part Swedish noir, one part romance, one part moralistic fable for a film that plays jump rope with the border of what viewers can bear to see on screen.

'Gueule d'Ange' Still
Film

From Cannes: ‘Gueule d’Ange’ (‘Angel Face’) Touchingly Depicts Girlhood, Destructive Motherhood

Marlene treats Elli less like her daughter and more like an adult friend, or more accurately, like an extension of herself—binge-drinking in front of her, making her over in garish neon lipstick and glittery eye shadow. It’s fun playing dress-up, until it isn’t.

Film

From Cannes: ‘Plaire, Aimer, et Courir Vite’ ('Sorry Angel’) Sweet, Yet Self-Indulgent

It’s clear that "Sorry Angel" indulges in its own intellectual impulses, sometimes almost to the point of pretension.
