Official competition wraps up with offerings from French, Russian directors

As the Cannes jury deliberations start, we bring you the last films to be shown on the Croisette. Among them, Olivier Assayas’ "Clouds of Sils Maria", starring French superstar Juliette Binoche and "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart.

Also highly lauded today is the only Russian offering in competition. "Leviathan" from Andrey Zvyagintsev tells the story of a man whose life is gradually taken away from him by a corrupt local official.

We also take a look at a film commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One. "The Bridges of Sarajevo" brings together thirteen small films from thirteen international directors, with the aim of exploring the history of Bosnia’s capital.

And to finish up, our reporters Jade Barker and Julien Muntzer show us how the stars really put the fun into fundraising in Cannes. We meet Sharon Stone and John Travolta at the prestigious AMFAR Gala, where over 38 million dollars were raised for the fight against AIDS.
