The Playlist's Complete Coverage Of The 2012 Cannes Film Festival

Cannes is done for another year. Exhausted filmmakers, writers and sales types have pretty much emptied out of the South of France, Michael Haneke has his second Palme D'Or in four years, and some of the most anticipated films of the year have been unveiled. The lineup had been incredibly eagerly anticipated, but the festival didn't quite live up to expectations: some nay-sayers early on started to complain about it being the worst competition roster ever -- perhaps swung by the unusual level of rain -- but generally, opinion was that it wasn't a hall-of-famer, but the acclaimed likes of Haneke's "Amour" and Leos Carax's "Holy Motors" -- the two critical faves of the festival -- meant that there was plenty of food for the eyes, ears, mind and heart.

Cannes Complete Coverage

Cannes is done for another year. Exhausted filmmakers, writers and sales types have pretty much emptied out of the South of France, Michael Haneke has his second Palme D'Or in four years, and some of the most anticipated films of the year have been unveiled.
