A curta-metragem Amor Avenidas Novas, de Duarte Coimbra e a longa Diamantino, de Gabriel Abrantes e Daniel Schmidt, concorrem em Cannes na 57ª Semana da Crítica - secção paralela à competição principal, mas ainda assim competitiva, com um júri este ano presidido pelo cineasta norueguês Joachim Trier (Oslo, 31 de Agosto) e que integra os actores Chloe Sevigny e Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (recente César da melhor esperança masculina por 120 Batimentos por Minuto, o filme de Robin Campillo).

A Semana da Crítica, que revelou cineastas como os mexicanos Guillermo del Toro e Alejandro González Iñárritu, acontecerá de 9 a 17 de maio.

Na seleção, destacam-se os latino-americanos Rapaz, do chileno Felipe Galvez, e Diamantino, uma coprodução Brasil, Portugal e França.

Os dois realizadores têm trabalhado juntos nos últimos anos em filmes como 'Tristes Monroes' (2017) e 'A History of Mutual Respect' (2010).

Segundo o site da Semana da Crítica, no centro da história está Diamantino, a maior estrela de futebol do mundo, que termina a carreira em desgraça. Procurando um novo objetivo na vida, o ícone internacional inicia uma odisseia delirante onde enfrenta o neofascismo, a crise dos refugiados, a modificação genética e a busca pela perfeição.

Além disso, serão exibidos Chris the Swiss, da suíça Anja Kofmel; o húngaro Egy Nap, de Zsófia Szilágy; Fuga, assinado pela polonesa Agnieszka Smoczynska, e Woman at War, do islandês Benedikt Erlingsson.

Na competição de curtas-metragens estará presente 'Amor, Avenidas Novas', ficção de Duarte Coimbra feita em contexto escolar e produzida pela Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema.

A presença em Cannes marca a estreia internacional do filme, que poderá antes disso ser visto durante o Festival IndieLisboa, entre os dias 26 de Abril a 6 de Maio, onde está seleccionado para a Competição Nacional e Competição Internacional.

A abertura da Semana da Crítica ficará por conta de "Wildlife", primeiro filme do ator e realizador norte-americano Paul Dano, protagonizado por Carey Mulligan, enquanto o encerramento será com "Guy", do francês Alex Lutz.
