This year’s festival opens with The Odyssey, Jérôme Salle’s dazzling biopic that will sweep you up in its sails as it follows the chaotic life of celebrity oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. There’s something for everyone with a dazzling array of comedy, girl power, centre stage, on-the-road films and more. The festival closes with writer-director Nadège Loiseau’s uproarious and emotive debut feature about a reluctant 49-year-old mother-to-be, A Bun In The Oven.
