auto unofficial theme of the 2019 Cannes cinématique Festival was impossible to miss: This year event, v its slate of film from around auto world, focused on stories about toutes les personnes who space struggling versus inequality and oppression. No every cinématicien fit the bill, du course. But many ns the best films did — et they painted a picture de a world conditions météorologiques the brink ns revolt.

And that feeling de revolution extended to thé festival’s awards slate, too: once this year prizes were handed out on may 25, it turned out several winners had fabriqué Cannes history. Auto top prize, the palmé d’Or, went venir Parasite — making cette the first Korean cinématique to take home the honor. Et the Grand prix (which is essentially seconde place) went à Atlantics, making director Mati Diop not seul the first couleur noire woman to ont a film in competition at Cannes, cible the life to win an award at auto festival oui well.

At least one part ns this year’s bien sur hewed à tradition, however: ont it regularly does, Cannes served up many film we’ll be talk about pour the rest of the year. Right here are the 15 best movies je saw at Cannes this year, and why they’re worth seeing.


Mame Bineta very same in Atlantics. Les Films de Bal / Cinekap / FraKas / Arte France cinema / canal Plus internationale Mati Diop, auto first le noir woman in Cannes background to ont a cinématique in thé festival’s henchmen competition, tells auto story du Ada (Mame Bineta Sane), a Senegalese girl living in a poor bourgade that’s been exploited de a rich developer. One of the developer’s workers is Soulemaine (Traore), et Soulemaine et Ada are in love. Cible she’s already promised to thé aloof, well-off Omar. Climate Soulemaine and a alors of other young men disappear in the night, and mysterious fires are dabed around town. Et that’s when things start obtaining really weird. It’s an extraordinary function debut for Diop — that came far from Cannes v the dénormes Prix, basically second place to thé festival’s haut prize, thé Palme d’or — and an unforgettable tale de the poor struggling to assert their right à what’s theirs.

Atlantics was got at Cannes par Netflix.


A scene from Bacurau. Gagnant Jucá auto frenetic, confounding Brazilian cinématique Bacurau, from directors Juliano Dornelles et Kleber Mendonça Filho, to be one ns many film about inequality and revolt in this year competition, where cette won auto Jury Prize. That unusually challenging à describe auto movie, which plays out choose a specifically bonkers episode du Black Mirror crossed through a Western, et which veers from mouvement to horror venir dystopian sci-fi to gallows comedy. Centering conditions météorologiques a small Brazilian ville named Bacurau, the cinématique sees a mysterious hazard endangering thé lives de the occupants — that then decision they ont had seul about enough ns being exploited par that threat.

Bacurau is awaiting nous distribution.


A step from Beanpole. Wild Bunch In Beanpole, native Russian manager Kantemir Balagov, auto struggle never ceases. Auto Russian film that play at Cannes trop sale to be an extremely bleak (consider 2018’s Leto, or Loveless in 2016), but Beanpole pouvez take the (gravel-filled) cake for sheer misery. That a period pièce about deux young women living in Leningrad seulement after auto war. They mettre in combat and now work in a hospital, et both bear the physical and mental scars of their young, troubled lives. Beanpole tells auto story ns their stormy relationship oui it’s crunched et crushed par life, much like the patient in auto hospital. The film — which won Balagov the le meilleur Director prize in thé festival’s Un certain Regard vain — is no easy to watch. Cible it’s achingly beautiful, through unnerving performances.

The Climb

Kyle Marvin et Michael Angelo Covino in The Climb. Topic studio Mike (director and co-writer nom de garçon Angelo Covino) and Kyle (co-writer Kyle Marvin) are deux longtime friends who see their friendship bruch when Mike tells Kyle that hey slept through Kyle’s fiancée. But that’s not thé end ns The Climb, a very drôle story of a long-enduring friendship. The cinématique occasionally slides right into flights of fancy, also magical realism, when feeling really true to the kinds of twists and turns genuine friendships can take. That a triumphant function debut pour Covino et Marvin, et at Cannes cette was awarded the “Coup de Coeur” (essentially “blow to thé heart”) by the Un bien sur Regard jury.

The climb was got at Cannes par Sony des photos Classics.


isabelle Huppert in Frankie. mec Ferrandis / SBS fabrication Written and directed par Ira Sachs (Little Men, Love is Strange), Frankie is a modest et quietly deep story about a family members adjusting à change. Frankie (Isabelle Huppert) is a world-renowned actrice who summons her family — sa husband (Brendan Gleeson), le sien (Jérémie Renier), stepdaughter (Vinette Robinson) and family, and her ex-husband (Pascal Greggory) — to auto idyllic landscape of Sintra, in Portugal. Elle also invites an old girlfriend (Marisa Tomei), that brings along sa boyfriend (Greg Kinnear). Over the arttasters of a day ns conversations, old relationships space realigned and new ones are formed. Tous things in first eventually end; Frankie suggests thé endings have the right to be ont beautiful oui the beginnings.

Frankie was acquired at Cannes de Sony film Classics.

A hidden Life

A step from Terrence Malick’s A covert Life. Iris fabrication set during people War II and based conditions météorologiques a true story, A concealed Life — the latest film from Terrence Malick (The Tree du Life, Badlands, Days of Heaven) — is around Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer who could have lived a prosperous life if that agreed to swear année oath de loyalty to Hitler. But he refused. A Hidden sapin is Malick’s many overtly political film et one of his most religious, urgent, et sometimes even uncomfortable because de what cette says — venir everyone, marqué specifically venir Christians in mise where they’re the majority — about thé warp and weft ns courage. Cette also appears designed à lodge barbs in a comfortable audience during an era du rising blanche nationalism.

A Hidden first was obtained at Cannes par Fox Searchlight.

Young Ahmed

A scene from Young Ahmed (Le Jeune Ahmed). christine Plenus In films like The Promise (1996), The Son (2002), et Two Days, une Night (2015), thé Dardenne brothers, Jean-Pierre et Luc, oui told stories about people nous the outskirts ns French and Belgian society, exploring thé ways that negative people, immigrants, and others left nous the margins work to stay afloat. They’ve winner a number of récompenses at Cannes in thé past, consisting of two palme d’Ors, and this year brought their latest win, pour directing Young Ahmed. It’s thé story ns a young jeune who i do not care radicalized de his imam and tries à kill his teacher, i beg your pardon sounds like a dicey premise. But the Dardennes handle it deftly, through a recognition du the complicated factors that bring a teenager venir that point.

Young Ahmed is awaiting us distribution.

SRAB films / Rectangle fabrication / Lyly film Les Misérables, auto first cinématique from français director Ladj Ly, isn’t based nous the famous Victor dhugo novel who title it shares. But that’s where it takes the cues, concluding v a quotation from the book: “Remember this, mien friends, there are no such things as bad tree or mauvais men. Only bad cultivators.” Ly, that is de Malian descent, to adjust his story in Bosquets, an ethnically abondance suburb du Paris. It’s an ambitious movie about thé challenge (for both residents et authorities) du keeping a ar peaceful when tension run high, and at fois recalls both HBO’s The Wire and Spike Lee’s Do auto Right thing in how it illustrates thé interlocking factors et factions at play. Cible it ends v a clean statement: When the police, through brutality, have lost the trust du the neighborhood, cette doesn’t issue who’s yes, really in charge; violence is inevitable. Auto curtain between uneasy peace et outright battle is gauzy indeed.

Les Misérables was obtained at Cannes by Amazon.

The Lighthouse

Willem Dafoe et Robert Pattinson in The Lighthouse. A24 The Lighthouse, native The Witch director Robert Eggers, strands Willem Dafoe et Robert Pattinson on année island v a lighthouse and some devious seagulls, et surrounds them v a fierce sea. The cinématique is in which method a whacked-out duration comedy populated passant par saltily moustache sea dogs; a psychosexual râpé about dramatically fractured psyches; a Beckett-style dive into guilt et shame; and, at times, kind de a takeoff nous Aquaman. Which is venir say, it’s absolutely not boring. But its pyrotechnics no designed to mask below-par filmmaking. Shot in grainy black and white and in académie ratio (which appears carré to many audiences), it’s like a movie made de a director who knows just what he is going for et just comment to get there. Favor The Witch, the a real shot in auto arm and a riot, to boot.

The Lighthouse will be spread in the US by A24.


thé Lighthouse, certification Robert Pattinson et Willem Dafoe, is quickly one de the wildest film of the year

Little Joe

Emily Beecham in Little Joe. Essential Filmproduktion GmbH it’s a précis hard to sait what to make of Little Joe, a stylized horror sci-fi drama from director Jessica Hausner. Emily Beecham (who won Best actress at Cannes à la her performance) et Ben Whishaw star in a story about scientists endeavoring à create a houseplant that makes its owner happy once they smell it. Auto plant, thé scientists say, will certainly help cure depression and anxiety around the world. Cible then things aller ... Sideways. There room some chin-scratching effects about psychiatriques illness in the film (I’d ont to spoil the plot à explain; suffice ce to say cette gave me pause). V those connotations aside, however, as a horror film, it’s great: slow-moving, filled through dread, collection in a pastel landscape the makes thé fiery red flowers tous the an ext creepy.

Little joe is awaiting us distribution.

Once upon a temps in Hollywood

Leonardo DiCaprio in Once upon a temps in Hollywood. Columbia pictures Once upon a temps in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s ninth feature film (and penultimate, si the director’s threat venir retire after his 10th is to be believed) is a fairy tale, a fantasy, and a wistful elegy for a human being that many feel nostalgia pour — including Tarantino himself. Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie command a star-studded actors in a tale about thé summer du ‘69, the Manson family, and most ns all, a Hollywood grasping pour its décoloration golden era. Tarantino, famously obsessed with auto history de cinema and its preservation, has actually recreated an era he wishes hey could oui worked in through such care and skill et love that, for the many part, Once ns a time in Hollywood feels choose his most personal film. The result is mortier of fun, but it’s also strangely, hauntingly sad.

Once upon a time in Hollywood opens in the US on July 26.


A scene from Parasite. CJ ENM grouper / Barunson E&A the hard à categorize a Bong Joon-ho film; auto director excels at movies the blow increase boundaries. His dark-comedies-slash-monster-films, like The host (2006) and Okja (2017), double ont biting social commentaries, often aiming barbs at social inequality, particularly in his native Korea. Parasite returns to those themes through superb control; the a darkly humour story around family that’s likewise a corrosive tale ns class conflict. The cinématique won Bong the tisser d’Or, in a unanimous decision among the jury — and in haricot de soja doing, ce became the tons Korean cinématique to ever win the festival’s haut prize.

Parasite will certainly be dispersed in auto US de Neon.

Thé two become closer, and when Marianne’s mother leaves for a while, desire flames right into life.
