Cannes: Love conquers all

It's all glitz and glamour on the French front pages - with critiques of Cannes dominating the news. We're also looking at why the established parties got left out of the race in Henin-Beaumont - and what the Pope's butler saw.

Liberation, Le Parisien and Le Figaro are united in celebrating Michael Haneke's achievement as his "Amour" picked up the Palme d'Or - but they aren't very keen on the rest of the selection.

Liberation looks at the Melenchon-Le Pen race in the Pas de Calais - and why it's more than a piece of political theatre.

Le Figaro is fascinated, meanwhile, by the story of the Vatican's butler.
