    Unforgiven (1992) will be projected during Cannes Classics in the presence of its director, Clint Eastwood. This cowboy masterpiece which has become a cult film was an immense commercial success, and has a legendary cast including Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Richard Harris and Clint Eastwood himself. It will be presented in a 4K remastered version by Warner on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.

    Gazes blackened by the sun, Colt revolvers, fantastic rides and great unreal spaces: Clint Eastwood uses the codes of the mythical cowboy films from his childhood. A retired outlaw, Bill Munny (Clint Eastwood) and his old accomplice Ned Logan (Morgan Freeman) get back in the saddle, tempted by the thousand-dollar bounty offered by the prostitutes of the township of Big Whiskey. On their way, they encounter Gene Hackman, a sadistic, brutal sheriff and Richard Harris, a trigger-happy bounty hunter, who do not intend to make it easy for them.

    This great classic won four Oscars in 1992: Best Picture, Best Director for Clint Eastwood, Best Supporting Actor for Gene Hackman and Best Film Editing for Joel Cox. A remake was made in 2013 (Yurusarezaru Mono) by the Japanese Sang-il Lee, with the charismatic Ken Watanabe in the role of bounty hunter turned samourai.  

    On Sunday May 21st, Clint Eastwood will also inaugurate the 70th Anniversary Masterclass with a discussion in the company of American critic Kenneth Turan in the Buñuel Theatre at 4p.m.

     

    The 4K remastering was done using a 4K scan of the original negative. The mastering was done at Warner Bros Motion Picture Imaging, and the grading was done by Ray Grabowski, with supervision from the editor Joel Cox.
