As the Cannes festival bears down on its weekend awards ceremony, a look at the movies seen so far and their reviews reveal deep divisions among the critics.Two other Cannes movies – "Youth," another Italian-directed film starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and Jane Fonda ruminating about aging, and grim Hungarian Holocaust drama "Son of Saul" – are also seen as worthy leading contenders.In a strong lineup, only one movie has been unanimously panned.The nine-person panel is jointly headed by American sibling director duo Joel and Ethan Coen and including actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller and Sophie Marceau, and directors Guillermo del Toro and Xavier Dolan.Past juries have proved notoriously unpredictable, however, and Cannes-lovers are left to guess for clues as to who might win the Palme d'Or, its runner-up Grand Prize, and the trophies for best director, best actor and best actress.
