‘Everything Went Fine’ (Tout s’est Bien Passe) by Francois Ozon, France saw it’s glitzy Cannes Film Festival Premeire.
The filmmaker returns to the festival for the fourth time to compete for the Palme d’Or. His latest work stars Sophie Marceau, André Dussollier, Géraldine Pailhas and Charlotte Rampling. When André (Dussollier) suffers a stroke and is fully paralysed, he becomes dependent on his two daughters Emmanuèle (Marceau) and Pascale (Pailhas) to get his legal affairs in order, feed him, visit him incessantly and then, finally, to organise his assisted death.
The film is just one of many of French films presented at the festival this year. And, as we previously wrote, is a bit of a hard sell for the British audiences. Despite the photographers’ pen being decimated by restrictions this year, the red carpet dazzled with glitzy dresses and some well-known and recognisable names.
