This year’s Palme D’Or winner to close French fest

Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” the Palme D’Or winner in this year’s Cannes, is the closing movie of the French Film Festival, set at Shangri-La Plaza Mall from June 8 to 19.

Top-billed by Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, the Cannes winner is distributed by local firm Pioneer Films, which lent it to the French embassy-sponsored festival. Pioneer lent two other high-profile French films-Luc Besson’s “Adele: Rise of the Mummy” and “Arthur 2: The Revenge of Maltazard,” to the fest.

Martin Macalintal, audio-visual attaché of the French embassy, said a diverse collection of films that represents contemporary French cinema was selected for the event.

Apart from Besson’s animated (“Arthur”) and action-adventure (“Adele”) flicks, there are drama (“7 Years”) and children’s (“Trouble at Timpeltill”) films on the list.
