With the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival in full swing, we’ve gathered a selection of outstanding masterpieces that have won the coveted Palme d’Or over the past few decades, considered by many cinephiles as the world’s most prestigious filmmaking award.
Denis' work has been hailed for its subtlety and power, as well as its stunning technical proficiency. She is one of the most important French filmmakers of her generation and is one of the most critically acclaimed female directors of all time. With her brand-new film 'High Life' starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche showing in our cinemas, we showcase her decade-spanning, award-winning career, beginning with 'Nénette et Boni'.
Now in its 72nd edition, the Cannes Film Festival is the most important event in world cinema. It might not have the razzmatazz of Hollywood and the Oscars, but unfolding amidst the French Riviera and featuring more than a splash of stars it exudes elegance and style. More importantly, no other festival offers the world’s finest filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their latest work. Many of these films, which will screen in Curzon cinemas over the coming year, mark the return of familiar faces to the festival. To celebrate their appearance in the various competition strands, we have curated some of the best works by these directors – a "best of" selection that highlights what a vital role Cannes plays on the landscape of modern film.
This curated retrospective celebrates the sad loss of veteran filmmaker Agnés Varda, a vital presence on the landscape of cinema. Varda was making new wave film before the new wave even existed. Her first feature was 'La Pointe Courte' (1955), a drama set in a fishing town that appeared four years before the debut of Truffaut and Godard. 'Cléo from 5 to 7' (1961) captured the carefree atmosphere of early 1960s Paris through its real-time portrait of a pop singer awaiting important news, while the rapturously colourful 'Le Bonheur' (1965) exposes hypocrisy and the fairness of gender relations in family life. If 'Vagabond' (1985) presented a raw account of life for one rootless woman and 'Jacquot de Nantes' (1991) presents a lyrical portrait of Varda's late husband Jacques Demy's early life, her more recent films engage in her own style of personal documentary. Taken together, 'The Gleaners and I' (2000) and 'The Beaches of Agnès' (2008) are joyous celebrations of the world around us and the people that inhabit it.
