2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 11 – Marco Bellocchio’s The Traitor

2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 11 – Marco Bellocchio’s The Traitor

Master filmmaker Marco Bellocchio returns to Cannes (he was last there for 2016’s Sweet Dreams – a Directors’ Fortnight entry) for what will be his sixth trip to Palme d’Or comp. Dating back to A Leap in the Dark (1980), he has been there with 1984’s Henry IV, 1997’s The Prince of Homburg, 1999’s The Nanny, 2002’s My Mother’s Smile and 2009’s Vincere. The Traitor looks to see him continue with exploring what lurks behind the scenes with a look at one person who breaks the code of silence.

A return to form for the master filmmaker, this collected several rave reviews/critical reception over the past 24 hours.
