Then two trailers from Cannes give a glimpse of two competition features on the Riviera. Arnaud Desplechin's talky "Jimmy P," stars Benicio del Toro as a Native American WWII veteran whose diagnosis of schizophrenia is examined by a French psychoanalyst (Mathieu Amalric). The two men heal each other. The film is adapted from George Devereux's non-fiction book, "Reality and Dream: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian."
The next trailer from Cannes is for Jia Zhangke's "A Touch of Sin," which intertwines four different stories about violence in China. Zhangke is competing for the Palme d'Or at the festival. "A Touch of Sin" is already becoming a controversial film, depicting the darker side of Chinese society. (More from Tom Christie here.)
