  • Cannes 2016: the Posters d’Or

  • The Death of Louis XIV – first look

    Six decades after The 400 Blows, Jean-Pierre Léaud plays the dying Sun King in a stately, majestic study of flesh and emblems from Albert Serra – surely the most beautiful film at Cannes 2016.

  • Cannes 2016: all the awards, and reaction

    Ken Loach wins his second Palme d’Or, Andrea Arnold wins her third Jury Prize and Iran’s Asghar Farhadi wins two awards for best actor and screenplay – but Maren Ade’s widely admired Toni Erdmann leaves empty-handed. Do juries shun comedies? Do actors always lean to theatre stories, wonders Nick James?

  • Cannes 2016 roundup: what should win?

  • My Life as a Courgette – first look

    A big film in a small package: Claude Barras’s children’s animation, written by Girlhood’s Céline Sciamma, broaches downbeat themes with charm, heart and smarts, says Wendy Ide.

  • The Neon Demon – first look

    The latest from perennial provocateur Nicolas Winding Refn is a fashion-world flirtation with Sadean kitsch that lacks staying power, says Catherine Bray.
