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.

Comprised of four segments using the same characters caught in a love triangle at various points in their life, "Oki's Movie" experiments with structure to humorously examine the connections and similarities between people. By jumping through various time periods and swapping perspectives, filmmaker Hong Sang-soo creates a little puzzle out of human relationships.

Over the next couple of months, rumor, speculation and, eventually, official confirmation will arrive about who will be making the trek to the Croisette.
