Kleber Mendonca Filho’s film bows third on the list, behind Paterson and table-topper Toni Erdmann.

Cannes 2016 jury grid day 8

Kleber Mendonca Filho’s Brazil-France drama Aquarius posted a strong 3.1 rating on Screen’s Cannes Jury Grid as the festival entered its second half.

Receiving two maximum four-star ratings, from Italy Fabio Ferzetti and the UK’s Tim Robey and Robbie Collin, the film’s score places it third on the overall list, behind only Jim Jarmusch’s Adam Driver-starring Paterson and Maren Ade’s record-breaking Toni Erdmann.

There were two other debutants today, Pedro Almodovar’s Julieta and Olivier Assayas’s Personal Shopper.

Julieta received middling scores, averaging 2.4, placing it mid-pack and level with Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake and Andrea Arnold’s American Honey.

Personal Shopper proved more divisive, averaging 2.3 but attracting a maximum four-star rating from the US’s Stephanie Zacharek alongside two X (no star) ratings from Germany’s Jan Schulz-Ojala and Russia’s Anton Dolin.
