5. Restless
US film maker Gus Van Sant won the Palme d'Or for best picture in Cannes in 2003 for "Elephant". This time around he is not in the main competition, but screenings of Restless, starring Mia Wasikowska as a young patient with terminal cancer, are likely to be packed.

4. The Tree of Life
Directed by US film maker Terrence Malick, The Tree of Life has taken on almost mythical status among European festival regulars due to its long gestation period and the secrecy surrounding its release. A brief synopsis and trailer is all most have seen of the director's fifth feature, and mysterious cosmic images suggest the narrative may go beyond normal human experience. Brad Pitt plays the father and Sean Penn his grown-up son Jack, described in the synopsis as a "lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life." Malick, 67, previously directed movies including "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line".

3. La Conquete/The Conquest
Xavier Durringer tells the story of the rise to power of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, focusing on the personal turmoil of marital collapse which accompanied his political triumph in the 2007 presidential election. The official synopsis says in conclusion: "The Conquest is the story of a man gaining power and losing his wife."

2. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Johnny Depp's fourth outing as Jack Sparrow in the hugely successful pirate franchise may not be to the liking of serious-minded cineastes in Cannes, but Hollywood blockbusters bring the glitz, glamour and buzz that festivals thrive on. If Depp and co-star Penelope Cruz do walk the red carpet along the famous Croisette waterfront, they are likely to attract a screaming crowd of fans and a small army of photographers, camera crews and reporters to the launch.

1. Midnight in Paris
The Cannes film festival opens on May 11 and runs until May 22. There are 20 movies in the main competition, but many out-of-competition pictures will generate just as much, if not more, interest.

Woody Allen is given the coveted out-of-competition opening slot for his romantic comedy starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams. Of greater interest to the world's media will be the performance, and possible red-carpet appearance, of French first lady Carla Bruni who has a small role in the film. The French president's wife -- a former model and singer -- is currently at the centre of fevered speculation in the French media over whether or not she is pregnant. Text: Reuters
