Despite being just the fourth female president of the jury in 62 years, actress Isabelle Huppert said this meant little to her, or to womankind. "I don't believe there are male and female forms of writing," said the recipient of two previous Cannes Best Actress awards, "Cinema is universal."

This bizarrely uneven comedy drama bolts together the fantasies of Michel Gondry and the bitter relationship rows of middle-period Woody Allen. Martin Freeman plays former Britpop star-turned-jingle writer Gary whose faltering relationship with his girlfriend (Gwyneth Paltrow, doing a favour for her director brother Jake) coincides with his increasingly vivid dreams of a sultry model (Penelope Cruz). He seeks help from a "lucid dreaming" expert (Danny DeVito).
