  • Description

    The 26th Cannes Film Festival opened on Thursday (10 May), and of the 400 films to be screened during the festival, 25 are in competition for the main prize.

    On the opening night there was warm applause for the screen version of the rock musical 'Godspell' and its British director David Greene. It portrays Christ and his disciples as young men in present-day New York. The chief member of this year's jury is Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman.

    Two French films, La Grande Bouffe (The Big Gorge) and La Maman et La Putain (The Mother and the Whore) were among the favourites for the top honours.
