A few minutes ago organizers release the usual video with Charles Tesson, Semaine Artistic Director, announcing this year selection with films that also as usual, seem strange/weird, which I think is absolutely Great! Alright admit that I do not like horror films and there are too many horror films in the competition, still very curious about the Danish film that was in the Berlinale and now in Cannes! That's quite unusual for a film.
