Peaceful, also known as De Son Vivant in French, is directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, and stars Catherine Deneuve, Cécile de France and Benoît Magimel in the lead roles.
The film follows three characters, a son (Magimel) who is diagnosed with cancer, his mother (Deneuve) and her struggle with not being able to help her, and the nurse (from France) who is trying to do her job.
The Cannes Film Festival is now in its fifth day after being canceled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Melissa currently lives in Paris with her two sons, Raphaël, seven, and Solal, five.
In 2012, Melissa told the Sydney Morning Herald that she would not be returning to Australia because she was fed up with local media being “disrespectful” when mentioning her role in Home and Away.
“I no longer need my country’s credibility, I just need them all to shut up. If they have nothing smart to say, please don’t talk to me anymore, ”she said.

“I’d rather have a croissant and a little espresso in Paris or take my French Bulldog for a walk in New York.”
However, she later changed her tune after temporarily returning to Down Under to film the Bad Mothers drama for Channel Nine.
In a promotional interview for the series in 2019, Melissa told TV Week magazine: “Every time I come to Australia, I feel complete.”

She spent 10 days filming Bad Mothers in Melbourne in 2018, and believes this short stay helped her “reconnect” with Australian culture.
“It was a great opportunity to come home and be among the Australian talent. That’s why I wanted to do this, ”she explained.
“I would say a lot of Australian talent has to go overseas – that’s the way it works. But when we get home, it’s like the last piece of the puzzle to be put together.
