The prestigious Cannes Film Festival is returning from July 6–17 after last year’s hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Like most film festivals that have been hampered by the pandemic last year, the prestigious Cannes Film Festival also had to cancel its run.
But it’s set to return this year for its 74th edition from July 6–17 and Cannes has announced its studded lineup of past Palme d’Or winners, French titles and arthouse fan favourites for the competition. Festival director Thierry Frémaux announced that 63 films from around the world are premiering this year and remarked that “cinema is not dead”.

A series of events will radically change the lives of the inhabitants of a Roman apartment building, revealing their difficulties in being parents, siblings or neighbors, in a world where coexistence seems to be ruled by fear and resentment.
While the men are imprisoned by their obstinacy, the women, each in their own way, attempt to mend these fragmented lives to finally and serenely pass on a love that had been thought lost forever.

Love can strike anywhere,anytime. In a container in a northern port of France. At a supermarket cash register. Behind the sliding glass door of a suburban home. And on the stage of an amateur theater, in the heart of a sailor named Neptune, or on the floor of a small town dancehall.
