What are the odds? Our Cannes gam­ble

The Irish Times - - Friday Life Film & Music -

HAPPY AS LAZ­ZARO 4/1 Dir: Alice Rohrwacher Well-re­viewed magic re­al­ist piece. Ad­mired young fe­male di­rec­tor. SHO­PLIFTERS 7/1 Dir: Hirokazu Kore-eda An­other per­sua­sive film from a Ja­panese Cannes reg­u­lar. COLD WAR 8/1 Dir: Pawel Paw­likowski Our choice for the prize, Paw­likowski’s pe­riod ro­mance might be a lit­tle cool for the jury. 3 FACES 9/1 Dir: Jafar Panahi Cur­rently banned from trav­el­ling by the Ira­nian gov­ern­ment, Panahi tells an­other de­cep­tively sim­ple, po­lit­i­cally rich story.

BURN­ING 9/1 Dir: Lee Chang-dong

Might be a lit­tle recher­ché. But Lee is a re­spected fig­ure .

And the mule at the back… UN­DER THE SILVER LAKE 250/1

If you have some in­side knowl­edge and you know a bookie who’ll take the bet.
