All the news, reviews, comment and buzz from the Croisette on day six of the Cannes flick festival
10.31am: Hello again: Cannes 2012 day six rolls round – after a very good weekend for the competition which we saw a wonderfully well reviewed Michael Haneke film, and good notices for two missing-in-action auteurs, Cristian Mungiu and Thomas Vinterberg, with Beyond the Hills and The Hunt (Jagten) respectively.
Outside the Palme d'Or nominees, things were a tad less rosy.
"Pasty" Pete Doherty showed up for a screening of his acting debut, Confession of a Child of the Century: reaction, to be honest, was not good.
Catherine will be filing a review later on – the word "catastrophic" was used.
Brandon "son of David" Cronenberg debuted Antiviral: again, word was iffy; we'll have Peter's review launched fairly soon.
And Henry appears to be giving girl group yarn The Sapphires a qualified thumbs-up: "sugary" would be the key concept here, I understand.
Big flick this morning is You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet from 89-year-old Alain Resnais; we'll be looking on Twitter in a mo for instant comment.
The other premiere tonight is for Abbas Kiarostami's Like Someone in Love; rather sneakily, it was screened for the press yesterday, so we'll have a review pronto.
