Cannes to open with ‘Annette’ from Leos Carax

France is in lockdown but plans continue for a physical festival from 6-17 July with the ultimate French auteur unveiling his latest work.

Cinemas in France have been in lockdown since early April, but fingers are crossed for a physical edition of the 74th Festival de Cannes. The Opening Ceremony is plotted for 6 July, followed by the world premiere screening of Leos Carax’s first English language film, Annette, a musical starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard.

The trailer certainly promises a unique experience, a mix of grand rock opera and art cinema that could be wonderful.
