Cannes Film Festival 2021: Day 11

What the Critics say...

by Alexa Dalby



Les Olympiades

"Several Parisians try to figure out life, love and sex in the moodily shot black-and-white drama Paris, 13th District (Les Olympiades: Paris 13e)." – Hollywood Reporter


“Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton make a dream team… The Thai master’s English-language debut – about an expat attuned to strange frequencies in Colombia – more than matches his past mystic odysseys…” – Guardian


“You have to brace yourself to an extent to watch Vortex and settle in for the long haul, but it’s certain you haven’t seen anything quite like it either.”– Deadline

Quinzaine des Réalisateurs

The Souvenir Part II

“The distinctive British filmmaker is at the height of her powers in this semiautobiographical work…. Arguably even more original and intensely personal than the first part, this A24 release deftly extracts something real and relatable from the elaborate artifice of the filmmaking process, making amusing observations about both the academic and the commercial sides.” – Hollywood Reporter
