The Cannes 2015 lineup wasn’t done quite yet. Today, several films were added to the Un Certain Regard and In Competition categories, bringing the final, completed lineups of each up to 19 films.
Chief among them is Gaspar Noé’s Love, “a sexual melodrama about a boy and a girl and another girl. It’s a love story, which celebrates sex in a joyous way.” Originally it was presumed the film would be In Competition, but now they’ve slotted the controversial filmmaker into a Midnight Movie screening. Also of note is Cemetery of Splendour, which is Thai director Apichatpong “Joe” Weerasethakul’s follow-up to the Palme D’Or winner from 2010, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. That film will be shown as part of the Un Certain Regard.
Other films on the slate, via Deadline: Guilliaume Nicloux’s The Valley of Love, Michel Franco’s Chronic, an English language debut starring Tim Roth, Alias Maria by José Luis Rugeles Gracia, Taklub by Brillante Mendoza, Robert Guédiguian’s, Une Histoire De Fou (Don’t Tell Me The Boy Was Mad), and Lamb by Yared Zeleke, marking the first time Ethiopia has had a movie in the official selection category.
