The upcoming Cannes Film Festival in the south of France will end with a golden oldie - the newly-restored version of Charlie Chaplin's 1936 classic MODERN TIMES.

The 25 May (03) screening of Chaplin's last silent movie breaks with the festival's usual practice of closing with a new movie.

Penelope Cruz's French film Fanfan La Tulipe will open the festival on 14 May (03), with the highly-anticipated MATRIX sequel, MATRIX RELOADED, being premiered the following day.
