Michael Douglas, accompanied by his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their daughter Carys, were solemnly welcomed by the management of the Cannes Film Festival. Douglas was honored with an honorary Palme d’Or this year for his lifetime achievement. The creators of the film “The Mistress of the King”, including Johnny Depp and Maïwenn, also appeared on the red carpet.

The Cannes Film Festival has officially opened. The 76th edition of one of the most important events of this type in the world gathered crowds of auteur and entertainment cinema stars from many corners of the globe. The most important figure of the first evening is the American actor, director and producer Michael Douglas, who received the Golden Palm for his lifetime achievement during the opening gala.

Douglas appeared on the red carpet in the company of his wife – Catherine Zeta-Jones and their 20-year-old daughter Carys. In the past, Douglas visited Cannes several times for the premieres of films in which he played the main roles.

This year’s edition of the Cannes Film Festival opened with the historical drama “The Mistress of the King” directed by the French filmmaker Maïwenn, who also played the title role in it (the original title is “Jeanne du Barry”).

He played the role of King Louis XV Johnny Depp. The fact that the film with his participation was chosen as the inaugural film strongly divided public opinion. This is Depp’s first major role since the series of lawsuits that followed his divorce from Amber Heard. The premiere of “The Mistresses of the King” in Cannes, during which the actor and co-producer of the film appeared, is described by some media as Depp’s return to the salons.

On the red carpet appeared, among others: Uma Thurman accompanied by son Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke, Elle Fanning, Hellen Mirren, Mad Mikkelsen and Catherine Deneuve.

Italian-French actress Chiara Mastroianni – privately daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni – has been chosen to host both the opening night and the closing gala this year.
