Previously, it was Ugly that was showcased in the same section at Cannes, and before that Bombay Talkies also opened at the festival. Both the films got quite a rousing response from the audience as did his two-part Gangs of Wasseypur.
This year, the Cannes film festival will see an eclectic line-up of films with some of the world's most-notable art-house directors showcasing their most-recent work. While Woody Allen's Cafe Society is set to open the fest, the following days will see the premiere of films by Pedro Almodóvar, Ken Loach, Xavier Dolan, Nicholas Winding Refn alongside titles by more mainstream names like Steven Spielbergh and Paul Verhoeven.
