Fourteen years after he helped launch the Dogme 95 movement with his family drama “The Celebration,” director Thomas Vinterberg returned to Cannes this past month with his latest film, “The Hunt.” As the Croisette is wont to do, reactions were immensely divided, with some calling the film a masterpiece of near-unbearable dread, while others found the film a manipulative soap opera.

Javier Nuñez Florian and Analin de la Rúa de la Torre had landed, but never checked into their hotel with co-star Daniel Arrechagan. Mulloy found out on Friday morning.
