Italian comedy ‘We Have a Pope’ premiered at The Cannes Film Festival on Friday to much critical acclaim.

The story focuses on a newly-elected pontiff, who immediately feels the strain of the responsiblity thrust upon him.

Directed by Nanni Moretti, it light-heartedly pokes fun at the Vatican and its secretive ways.

Looking to calm his nerves, the pope, played by French actor Michel Piccoli, seeks help from Rome’s top psychiatrist.

Another film making it’s bow at Cannes on Friday was Keith Allen’s ‘Unlawful Killing’.

The documentary focuses on the British coroner’s inquest into the death of Princess Diana.

It was entirely funded by Mohamed al-Fayed, the businessman whose son Dodi died with Diana in a Paris car crash in 1997.

Unlawful Killing argues the British media failed to understand the coroner’s verdict, which blamed unidentified vehicles following Diana’s car.
