Best Director winner Mathieu Amalric moves down from the Main Comp, Ryan Gosling changes the title of his film, Ned Benson trims an hour to become a rare 2013 film added to the fest, Asia Argento adds a touch of eclectic while Pascale Ferran and Lisandro Alonso add a little auteur clout while our bets are on Ruben Ostlund to shake up the section. Thierry Frémaux’s Un Certain Regard section for ’14 has six Camera d’Or (first-time filmmakers) hopefuls including our tipped for Cannes bet in Kanu Behl’s Titli, and the female filmmaker presence (Jessica Hausner, Keren Yedaya) make up for the lack of in the Main Comp.
