After a 74th summer edition, the Cannes Film Festival returns to the month of May, for a 75th fortnight placed under the sign of filmmakers, stars, revelations, nuggets and other cinematographic slaps. It is therefore from May 17 to 28, 2022 that the cinema planet will have its eyes riveted on the Croisette, which will host the traditional climbs of the daily steps. Who will succeed Titane by Julia Ducournau, Palme-choc 2021? Our editorial staff tells you everything you need to know about the works expected this year on the screens of the Palais des Festivals.

Midnight Screenings – Fumer fait tousser by Quentin Dupieux
Benoît Poelvoorde, Grégoire Ludig, David Marsais, Anaïs Demoustier, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Alain Chabat… For his tenth feature film, Quentin Dupieux brings together the Avengers of his cinema in Smoking makes you cough and their assistant newcomers such as Gilles Lellouche, Vincent Lacoste, Anthony Sonigo, Doria Tillier and Jean-Pascal Zadi, for a story of superheroes: the “TABAC FORCE”, whose going green after a fight against a demonic turtle is threatened by an Emperor of Evil. Superpowers, the absurd and a golden cast for the director, as well as a presence in the Official Selection (and Midnight Screening) for the one who had previously passed through Critics’ Week and the Fortnight.
