With the official selection at the Festival de Cannes nearing its April 23 announcement, there are surprisingly few firm fixtures installed for Croisette exposure. The only real certainty is that several top-flight Cannes alumni will not be parading their new offerings. Three past Palme d'Or winners have yet to put the finishing touches on their latest pictures: Emir Kusturica (Hungry Heart), Jane Campion (In the Cut) and Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill). Another Palme winner, Greek director Theo Angelopoulos, also looks unlikely to make the cut unless he completes editing in time on The Weeping Field, the first part of a trilogy. The exception to this rule may be Lars von Trier, winner of the 2000 Palme d'Or for Dancer in the Dark, who is expected back in Cannes this year with Dogville, starring Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgard.
