What are the odds? Our Cannes gamble
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.
