The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film events in the season even though its winners usually don’t receive the Best Picture Academy Award. The highest prize of the festival, the Palme d’Or awards the best film selected by the Grand Jury.  In the previous winners, we can find films like Pulp Fiction, The Pianist, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Dancer in the Dark. But the 2019 Academy Awards winner Parasite also won the Palme d’Or. This year the jury is led by French actor Vincent Lindon. But we can also find English-American actress Rebecca Hall or Swedish actress Noomi Rapace in it. The main favorites include Japanese, French and American films, let’s see them below. 

2022 Cannes Film Festival Winner Odds Mention Japanese Broker as The Top Favorite

Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-media’s new film called Broker leads the 2022 Cannes Film Festival winner odds at the moment with the odds of 7.00. Kore-eda has already won the Palme d’Or in 2018 with his previous film, Shoplifters. Now his new drama can also do the same according to the bookmakers. The film tells the story of different characters who cross paths thanks to baby boxes where people can drop their unwanted children. The film stars Bong Joon-ho who played in Oscar-winning Parasite. Kore-eda’s other works were also successful in Cannes. Like his drama, Like Father, Like Son which won the Jury Prize in 2013. 

Online gambling sites in France also mention Brother and Sister, a French film directed by Arnaud Desplechin with a big chance of winning. It’s about two estranged siblings who have to meet again after their parents’ death. Marion Cotillard and Melvil Poupaud play the lead characters. Desplechin has had seven films competing at the festival so far but none of them win any awards. Now his odds to win the Palme d’Or are 8.50. Same odds are offered for another regular participant, David Cronenberg, and his latest film, Crimes of the Future. Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux, and Kristen Stewart star in the international co-production which belongs to the science fiction – horror genre. 

American Films in Other Favorites

We can find a strong cast in James Gray’s American period drama, Armageddon Time. Like Anne Hathaway, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeremy Strong play in the film. It is about the director’s upbringing in Queens in the 1980s, but no further details have been released about the story. Gray had four other films competing in the festival before, now his odds to win the main award are 10.00. Another co-production directed by Ali Abbasi, the Holy Spider got the same odds for the Palme d’Or. The Iranian-Danish director makes his debut in the main competition with this crime drama, which tells the story of a journalist investigating the killings of sex workers in the Iranian holy city of Mashhad.  

The second American entry, Kelly Reichardt’s Showing Up also belongs to the favorites. Online sportsbooks in France offer the odds of 11.00 for its victory.  The film is about a sculptor played by Michelle Williams who tries to balance her creative and family life. Reichardt only had one film screened in Cannes before, Wendy and Lucy in 2008, despite her fame in the US. A more known-name in Cannes is Park Chan-wook who won the Grand Prix with Oldboy in 2004. Then his next film, Thirst won the Jury Prize. Now Park has a chance of winning the Palme d’Or with his latest mystery film, Decision to Leave. In which a detective falls for a suspect of a murder, a mysterious widow.
