1997 Cannes Film Festival Diaries
Day 9: Films in Competition

by Cari Beauchamp

So far there have been no major foreign films in competition that will sweep to American screens and warm the heart and souls of audience such as last year's "Secrets and Lies" and "Cinema Paradiso" of several years before. Bit two worthwhile films shown in competition that may well make it to US art houses are Australia's "The Well" and Canada's "The Sweet Hereafter."
