by Oscar-winning Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, which will be screened on Wednesday 20 May in the Official Competition at Cannes, the international sales team of French group Pathé will have a major advantage at the Film Market of the 68th Cannes Film Festival (13-24 May 2015), although only a few countries and regions are still available for purchase (China, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Latin America and South Africa).

The story is set in 1947 at the Delhi palace of vice-king and governor-general of India Lord Mountbatten.  Whilst negotiating the independence of India at the palace (where he lives with his family), a conflict (with grave consequences) breaks out among his 5000 servants (hindus, muslims and sikhs).

Finally, add a film which has done very well on the market to the mix, Evolution Man - Monkey Business [+see also:

 by Jamel Debbouze (with 1.58 million admissions in France in three weeks) and it is safe to say that Pathé has a very solid line-up, which will no doubt do well at Cannes.
