Meanwhile Japanese director Naomi Kawase’s movie “An” opens the Un Certain Regard selection. It’s a subtle and moving story about an old woman with a broken fate.

Euronews correspondent Frédéric Ponsard reported: “Cinema in all its forms is being celebrated in Cannes.

“The remake of Australian blockbuster Mad Max surprisingly turns out the be a triumph of feminism. While Japan presented a sweet and intimate feel-good movie.

“Two completely different films being celebrated on the red carpet. That’s the magic of Cannes.”
