The 64th Festival de Cannes 2011: Top 10 Splendid Films Take Part in the Final Round

The Cannes Film Festival has received great concerns from all over the world. 20 movies are included in the main competition and most of them may be too familiar to you. On the second day of Cannes Film Festival, the real contest has opened its beginning and the world focuses on who will win the Golden Palm in Festival de Cannes 2011.

In the following, there are top 10 films that are most likely to get access to the crown.

1. The Tree of Life

Because of the long gestation period and the secrecy surrounding its release, it has occupied a mythical status among European festival regulars.

Brad Pitt plays the father and Sean Penn his grown-up son Jack, described in the synopsis as a “lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life.”

4. Midnight in Paris

Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, and Carla Bruni star in Woody Allen’s omantic comedy about a family on a business trip in the City of Light. As a young couple engaged to be married experiences a profound transformation during their visit to Paris, an idealistic man with a romanticized view of the city finds that there’s plenty of truth to that old adage about the grass being greener on the other side.

 5. Restless

From Imagine Entertainment comes a powerful and emotional coming of age story, a remarkable film told with honesty and originality that will leave audiences moved. In the film, two outsiders, both shaped by the circumstances that have brought them together, forge a deep and lasting love. Directed by Gus Van Sant, one of the most astute observers of people living life on the edge, comes a take on friendship and young love as engaging and true as it is provocative and stirring.
