‘Catherine Deneuve says that in the 1960s, “high-heeled shoes were for ladies with a history of shameful behavior. They were held for the individuals who were obliged by their calling to carry on a personification.

Palme d’Or contender: Cate Blanchett in Carol, coordinated by Todd HaynesCannes 2015: who’ll pack the Palme d’Or?

Audiard, now 63, is a veteran of the Cannes Film Festival. His unrivaled A Prophet won the Grand Prix here in 2010.

The opposition for the Palme d’Or should be a three-steed race between three different stallions. László Nemes’ Son of Saul, a singing story of the Holocaust shot in long occupied tackles a slender proportion, needed to settle for the Grand Prix.
