Cannes 2012: live blog - day 10

It's all about R Patz today, as Cosmopolis takes a bow on the Croisette

9.22am: Bonjour! It's a lovely morning in London, but let's hot-tail it to the south of France, where the critics are streaming out of Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg's adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel. And I can see the smiles from here.

Enjoyed Cosmopolis; odd and funny

Vasan Bala's Peddlers. The Critics' Week synopsis: "A ghost town, Mumbai, inhabited by millions. A lady on a mission, a man living a lie, an aimless drifter. They collide. Some collisions are of consequence, some not, either ways the city moves on."

Antonio Méndez Esparza's Aquí y Allá. CW: Pedro returns home to his small village in Guerrero, Mexico after having worked for several years in the Us. Even though the village is expecting a bountiful harvest, they're still preoccupied with opportunities north of the border.

Alejandro Fadel's Los Salvajes. CW: "Five teenagers violently escape a reformatory school in an Argentinean province.... They hunt to feed, rob houses they come across, do drugs, bathe in the river,
