The 68TH ANNUAL CANNES FILM FESTIVAL was held from 13 to 24 May 2015. Joel and Ethan Coen were the Presidents of the Jury for the main competition. It was the first time that two people chaired the jury. Since the Coen brothers each received a separate vote, they were joined by seven other jurors to form the customary nine-juror panel. French actor Lambert Wilson was the host for the opening and closing ceremonies. The Palme d\'Or was awarded to the French film _ Dheepan _ directed by Jacques Audiard . On winning the award Audiard said "To receive a prize from the Coen brothers is something pretty exceptional. I'm very touched". The festival poster featured Hollywood star and Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman , photographed by David Seymour . The poster was chosen to pay tribute to Bergman for her contributions to films and who also served as the Jury President at 1973 Cannes Film Festival .

Cyrano De Bergerac (1990 Film)
CYRANO DE BERGERAC is a 1990 French comedy drama film directed by Jean-Paul Rappeneau and based on the 1897 play of the same name by Edmond Rostand , adapted by Jean-Claude Carrière and Rappeneau. It stars Gérard Depardieu , Anne Brochet and Vincent Pérez . The film was a co-production between companies in France and Hungary. The film is the first theatrical film version of Rostand's original play in colour, and the second theatrical film version of the play in the original French. It is also considerably more lavish and more faithful to the original than previous film versions of the play. The film had 4,732,136 admissions in France. Subtitles are used for the non-French market; the English-language version uses Anthony Burgess 's translation of the text, which uses five-beat lines with a varying number of syllables and a regular couplet rhyming scheme, in other words, a sprung rhythm . Although he sustains the five-beat rhythm through most of the play, Burgess sometimes allows this structure to break deliberately: in Act V, he allows it collapse completely, creating a free verse . In 2010 Cyrano de Bergerac was ranked number 43 in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema"
