CANNES 2018: A BALANCE

By Mónica Delgado

It’s been over a week since the Golden Palm was awarded to Hirokazu Kore-eda Shoplifters, an event which closed a festival that kept its classics leitmotivs in a low key: miserabilism, cruelty or the overrating of a cinema with messages and big issues had its few peaks.
