It is one of the most intriguing and anticipated events of this 75th edition of the Cannes International Film Festival. Absent from the big screens since 2014, with its Maps to the Stars, the genius David Cronenberg is back in force with Crimes of the future – Crimes of the future. The film will be released in dark rooms from May 25th… but it was presented a few hours before the date, on the Côte-d’Azur, at the Palais des Festivals.

Nothing surprising in this association between Kristen Stewart and the house on rue Cambon. The actress has already played Coco Chanel in a short film directed by Karl Lagerfeld and she has been the brand’s ambassador since 2013 – she was the face of a Métier d’art collection and the Gabrielle perfume. In this incendiary outfit, the actress found Lihi Kornowski, Robert Lantos, Welket Bungue, Don McKellar, Scott Speedman, Nadia Litz, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos and Denise Capezza. To find out if David Cronenberg will win the honors of the Cannes Film Festival, it will however be necessary to wait for the closing ceremony, organized on Saturday May 28, 2022. Last year, it was the Frenchwoman Julia Ducournau who won the palme d’or for Titanium…
