Nobody knows anything
As this year's Cannes enters its final stretch, the talk on the Croisette turns to debating who's going to win the Palme D'Or with the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men, Romanian Cristian Mungiu's abortion drama 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days and Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly the apparent favourites, although if the critics' polls released everyday are to be indication, David Fincher's Zodiac also appears to be in contention. But as with most years, what the critics think and what the jury thinks aren't necessarily the same thing. The only thing most people agree on, however, is that the quality of films this year has been particularly high. The prizes are handed out Sunday. Check back for the results.
