The list included only one Russian film, it will be shown in the Special Look program, but chances of success the drama "Lanky fellow" by the director Kantemir Balagov, according to the film expert, has Kantemir Balagov. Photo: Pyotr of Kovalyov/TASS the Cannes Film Festival announced on April 18 nominees. In the list only one Russian picture, and that not in the main competition. It is the drama "Lanky fellow" by the director Kantemir Balagov, it will be shown within the Special Look program. The picture tells about the fate of two girls who come back from the front to post-war Leningrad. "A special look" — the second most important program of a film festival in Cannes. The movie prize-winner gets support in the French box office. The main program of a competition included 19 pictures, among them "There are pain and glory" Pedro Almodovara, "Matthias and Maxim" of Xavier Dolan and "The hidden life" of Terrence Malik. What of the nominated movies is considered a favourite and how will accept the Russian film? The site editor "Art of the film" Egor Belikov comments. — it seems to Me, the best chances at the new movie by Terrence Malik, just the genius, probably, and including the Cannes Film Festival. All very much wait for the movie by Pedro Almodovar. Though it is impossible to foresee at the Cannes Film Festival anything in advance, there often as a result it turns out that one of the best movies does not win the first prize, and one of, perhaps, not the best, most likely, will receive at least the Grand Prix. — And what it is possible to tell concerning the movie by our director? — Kantemir Balagov entered the competition "Special Look" again. It seems to me, Kantemir has grandiose chances of this time after all to win "A special look" and to pass into the highest league, to stake out for themselves the place, for example, in the next Cannes competition. The responses only struck were on the previous picture, absolutely new name in world cinema when it released "Narrowness" directly opened. I do not know that it is concrete with "Lanky fellow", but heard only enthusiastic responses from those who saw working material. I think that every chance against the background of quite dead competition "Special Look" where this year against it only, probably, one American movie and the movie by Albert Serra will resist to it. "The special look" not the most difficult competition, and this time at us is chance to win it. For more than 70-year history of a festival the Russian film won the first prize only once. In 1958 the palm branch was taken by the movie The Cranes Are Flying by Mikhail Kalatozov. Why our tapes seldom appear in the main program? The member of the Union of Cinematographers of Russia Maria Bezruk explains. Maria Bezruk the member of the Union of Cinematographers of Russia "The Russian directors infrequent guests in competitive programs of a festival of a class of A. S of other party, large Berlinale festivals, Cannes, Venice first of all support national cinema of those countries where these festivals are organized. And it is very important that Kantemir Balagov generated the new direction which at us it is accepted to call regional cinema, it is very healthy. Because if, for example, already became boring to the Cannes public traditional Russian cards
