Cannes Day 5: The Schedule

In Competition

The Princess Of Montpensier by Bertrand Tavernier
8.30 15.00 19.00

Synopsis:
1562. In France, during the reign of Charles IX, the wars of religion are raging...
Marie de Mézières, heiress to one of the kingdom’s greatest fortunes, loves the young Duc de Guise, known in the annals of history as Le Balafré, “Scarface”. She believes he loves her back.
To increase his family’s prestige, her father, the Marquis de Mézières forces Marie to marry the Prince de Montpensier, whom she has never met.
The Prince is summoned by Charles IX to join the war against the Protestants. With the whole country turned into a bloody battlefield, he sends his young wife to Champigny, one of his most secluded castles, in the company of the Comte de Chabannes, his friend and former tutor. The Prince asks Chabannes to complete the Princess’s education so that she can take her place at court one day.
In unhappy isolation at Champigny, Marie tries to forget the passionate longing she still feels for Guise.
Fate and the changing course of the war lead Guise and the Duc d’Anjou, the future Henri III , to stay at Champigny shortly after Montpensier has joined Marie there. In turn, Anjou falls in love with the Princess, to whose charms Chabannes has also succumbed. A violent, passionate rivalry develops with Marie as the prize.

I Wish I Knew by Jia Zhangke
16.30
Synopsis:
Shanghai, a fast-changing metropolis, a port city where people come and go.
Shanghai has hosted all kinds of people – revolutionaries, capitalists, politicians, soldiers, artists, and gangsters.
Shanghai has also hosted revolutions, assassinations, love stories.
After the Chinese Communists’ victory in 1949, thousands of Shanghaiers left for Hong Kong and Taiwan. To leave meant being separated from home for thirty years; to stay meant suffering through the Cultural Revolution and China’s other political disasters.
Eighteen people from these three cities - Shanghai, Taipei and Hong Kong - recall their lives in Shanghai. Their personal experiences, like eighteen chapters of a novel, tell stories of Shanghai lives from the 1930s to 2010.
An eternally wandering soul returns to Shanghai and, walking along the banks of the Huangpu River, awakens to all the changes the city has undergone.
