Cannes this year takes place as usual after two years of Covid-induced restrictions. The last time we’ve seen an event on this scale is in 2019, in 2020 the event was cancelled completely and in 2021 it was a much more subdued affair.

Already we have seen some of the worlds brightest stars in attendance including Eva Longoria and Julianne Moore, who attended the screening of Final Cut. The film chosen to open the festival this year (also known as Coupez!), is a Zombie comedy directed by Michel Hazanavicius. It is a French remake of the 2017 Japanese film One Cut of the Dead, starring Romain Duris and Bérénice Bejo. This year our eyes are feasting on the latest fashion from the croissette, as traditionally the biggest names in show business make their way down the red carpet for the event which hosts supermodels, actors and media personalities.
