Canadian director and screenwriter Xavier Dolan, who served as a jury member of the 68th Cannes Film Festival, won the Grand Prize of this year's festival with his film Juste La Fin Du Monde (It's only the end of the world).

The movie tells a story in which a writer goes back, after 12 years of absence, to his hometown, planning on annoucing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love.
