Cannes 2022: the French film “The Worst Ones” at the top of the “Certain Regard” section

A film set in the working-class suburb of the northern French town of Boulogne-sur-Mer won first prize in the “Un Certain Regard” competition at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday.

‘The Worst’, directed by Lise Akoka and Romane Gueret, explores the challenges of street casting, telling the story of a community’s reaction to the arrival of a film crew.

“I hope that this film, beyond the reviews, will be read as a tribute to cinematographic creation because sometimes it allows those who are not often heard to speak,” said Gueret.

Deadline described the film, with “thought-provoking and at times darkly funny” events, as “a fascinating look at the filmmaking experience”.

‘Joyland’, a Saim Sadiq film that seeks to break gender stereotypes in Pakistan, the country’s first Cannes Film Festival entry, won the jury prize.

The film’s Cannes screening felt like “a dream has come true,” one of its stars, Sarwat Gilani, told Reuters on Tuesday, adding that she felt “the struggles we face as artists in Pakistan, they have all come to be worth it.”

“Un Certain Regard” is a competition centered on auteur films that runs alongside the main competition, the Palme d’Or, which will be announced on Saturday.
