Slowly shaping up to be one of the more unique productions this year, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” has gradually acquired a talented cast fit for its two-film premise -- that of a troubled marriage told, in each installment, from the husband and the wife's perspective. A few weeks back Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy were locked in as the couple, and now a slew of new names have come up just as the film heads into shooting.

Heaviness tends to dominate the Cannes Film Festival, and this year is no different. Death ("Amour"), doubt ("The Hunt"), losing limbs ("Rust And Bone") and religious fanaticism ("Beyond The Hills") are just some of themes that have cropped up so far as we get to the halfway point of the fest. And while Hong Sang-soo's "In Another Country" won't win any points for examining tough subject matter, the deceptively simple film is a decent breath of fresh of air in a lineup of Important Movies.

Cannes Review: Age & Illness Test Love In Michael Haneke's Unflinching 'Amour'

Michael Haneke makes it clear from the opening of the film exactly where he's going in "Amour." Kicking off with a literal bang, a team of police officers force open the door of a flat in France, and with masks over their mouths, they walk around the apartment, open the windows and finally find what they're looking for. A dead body, respectfully surrounded by flowers, lays in a bed. And in pure Haneke fashion, this is when he throws up the title card for "Amour," a movie that is, to put it simply, two hours of a woman dying.

Is there anyone whose worked with a more diverse range of helmers in recent times than Isabelle Huppert? Probably not. Brilliante Mendoze, Hong Sang-soo, David O. Russell, Michael Haneke, Joachim Lafosse, Oliver Assayas, Raul Ruiz, Anna Fontaine and Claire Denis are just some the folk she's teamed with over the last decade or so, and only this morning she added David Gordon Green to the list, signing on to his remake of "Suspiria." And hot on its heels, another European helmer is now added to the list, in the shape of "Vincere" director Marco Bellocchio.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that spooky Isabelle Fuhrman will headline David Gordon Green's long-discussed but now-actually-happening "Suspiria" remake, comes word that several more actors have joined the cast. In a piece about French production company Wild Bunch's Cannes slate, ScreenDaily reports that international treasure Isabelle Huppert has joined the cast of "Suspiria" alongside Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue. This cast is already scary good.

After making his directorial debut four decades ago with “Fists in the Pocket,” Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio has tackled many genres and styles, but one consistent characteristic has been his savage socio-political themes and undertones. His 2010 film, “Vincere,” proved to be the most explosive yet, capturing disgraced Italian leader Benito Mussolini’s rise to power from his abandoned wife’s perspective, and now he plans to do it again, this time with one of the world’s most talented actresses in tow.

There are few actresses who march to the beat of their own drum in the way that Isabelle Huppert does. This year alone finds her in three wildly different movies, from a trio of auteur filmmakers, including Brillante Mendoza's "Captive," which premiered in Berlin and a duo of pics unspooling at the Cannes Film Festival: Michael Haneke's "Amour" and Hong Sang-Soo's "In Another Country." And now, just like that, she's again confounding expectations, taking a role in her first Hollywood project since 2004's David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees" (or if you want to be technical about it, since an appearance on "Law & Order: SVU" in 2010).

Well, we've taken a look at the leading men, now it's time to look at the actresses who have also fallen outside of the Academy Award radar. While there is no Gary Oldman-esque story of recognition this year at the Oscars for the ladies, these five names will hopefully be a reminder that there are more women out there other than Meryl Streep who deserve to put that funny gold statue on their mantle.

Brillante Mendoza Discusses Working With Isabelle Huppert On 'Captive' & His Smaller-Scale, Manila-Set Next Project

Brillante Mendoza has a killer work ethic: the Filipino director made nine films between 2005's "Masahista" and 2009's "Lola," the latter of which, along with Cannes in-competition entry "Kinatay" the same year, really launched him into the major leagues of international helmers. He's taken an uncharacteristic two-and-a-half year break, but returned this week at the Berlin Film Festival with "Captive," a gripping, Herzogian drama that should see him reach his widest audience yet, thanks to the presence of international star Isabelle Huppert.
