The Coen brothers’ new film is a hot tip for this year’s Palme d’Or, though some critics think this whimsical, wistful film may lack the necessary gravitas to carry off the coveted award. BBC Culture speaks to the film’s stars and T-Bone Burnett, producer of the film’s folk soundtrack.
BBC Culture also speaks to directors and critics about Japanese film, Like Father, Like Son, and Cannes’ special season of screenings to celebrate a centenary of Indian film-making.
BBC Culture features regular video reports from Cannes throughout the festival.
