Category: Un Certain Regard
Director: Andrew Hulme
While everyone was banging on about the Ken Loach / Mike Leigh face-off in the main competition, this first feature by Brit Andrew Hulme slipped into Un Certain Regard under the radar. If Hulme's editing experience is anything to go by – two films, Control and The American, for Anton Corbijn, plus Bart Layton's terrific doc The Imposter – this should be very impressive. It's a gritty east London-set true crime story that has been compared (admittedly by its backers) to Jacques Audiard's recent Cannes hit A Prophet.
