Above Sonam Kapoor (in Jean Paul Gaultier) and Fan Bing Bing raise the glamour stakes at the Cannes Film Festival.

Celebrities on the red carpet on Sunday included Sonam Kapoor, Vincent Perez, Olivia Ruiz, Michèle Laroque, Fan Bing Bing, Jacques Lang, Michel Hazanavicius and Jean Dujardin.
   Among our interviewees, brought to you by Cinémoi, is Niels Schneider. With Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), he won a Trophée Chopard for new talent at the 64th Festival de Cannes, following in the footsteps of prior honorees Marion Cotillard and Audrey Tautou.
   Schneider won for Xavier Dolan’s Heartbeats, and told the Associated Press he first heard of his win on April 1. He initially put it down to an April Fool’s prank.
   Schneider received his award from jury president Robert de Niro at the Hôtel Martinez.
   Meanwhile, Jonathan Ross takes a ride in the Renault Fluence EV, which, alongside the rebadged Samsung SM5—the Renault Latitude—ferried VIPs to the Festival. Top Gear it is not, especially not from the back seat, but it gives the new electric car that’s cleaner than a Toyota Prius in terms of emissions some much-deserved publicity.
   Ross also previews Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life prior to its screening. The film has since screened. Ross mentions its stars, Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, and how Malick chose to delay the film’s release till 2011, despite the possibility of it appearing at the 2010 Festival. Ross puts it down to Malick’s perfection—this is only the director’s fifth feature in his 40-year career—and initial reviews indicate Pitt has given one of his best performances.
   Shot three years ago, and perfected since, Tree of Life links the story of a Texan family with creation itself, and is deeply introspective. It will be released May 27 through Fox Searchlight.
