I ended up having a really packed schedule while I was there, so I was only able to catch a few films in the evening. I ended up seeing four features, Zombi Child, Vivarium, First Love and Jeanne. Zombi Child was a blast and a frankly admirable film. First Love was incredibly entertaining (someone, while leaving, called it the greatest rom-com he'd seen in years), and Takashi Miike's introduction was the funniest intro to a film I've ever seen. Vivarium was among the worst films I've seen this year, and left a truly sour taste in my mouth. Jeanne was the last film I saw in Cannes, and I saw it at the Soixantième, which seats a load of people, but by the end the theater was really quite empty; people were leaving throughout the whole film, and when the film ended a lot of people were still sleeping in their chairs. That was something I didn't really expect to see in Cannes. Nevertheless I found it to be extremely moving, and movie-wise it was the fondest memory I brought from the festival. The second and third acts were just magical.
I also attended a shorts screening, which ranged from very bad to quite enjoyable. There was one which particularly impressed me, named Kolektyviniai Sodai (Community Gardens), which was presented by a young boy and girl who didn't seem to know what the hell they were doing there. They were truly endearing, and their film truly rang true so I'd very much like to see what it is they'll be doing next.
