More competish at Cannes

'Cronica' added to Un Certain Regard

The Cannes Film Festival lineup is growing.

A week after announcing the Official Selection, artistic director Thierry Fremaux has added a 20th title to this year’s competition slate, moving up Adrian Israel Caetano’s Argentinean thriller “Cronica de una fuga” from its previously announced Un Certain Regard slot.

Australian production “Two Thirty 7,” a first film by Murali K. Thalluri about a high school suicide, has been added to Un Certain Regard.

The fest, which runs May 17-28, also announced two special screenings in the Bunuel Theater. The first is a German double bill beginning with Wim Wenders’ 1982 short “Chambre 666” presented by the helmer, followed by Holger Ernst’s first film “The House is Burning”; the second special screening is Gallic helmer Anne Fontaine’s “Nouvelle Chance,” attended by its star Danielle Darrieux.

The Directors Fortnight sidebar, which will announce its full lineup Tuesday, announced that it will open May 18 with Zentropa-produced Danish animation/live action pic “Princess” by Anders Morgenthaler. Helmer’s film school short “Araki” screened at the Berlinale and at Cannes in 2003.
