Roman Polanski’s 1972 work Weekend of a Champion was screened in Cannes this week during the Film Festival. The documentary followed Jackie Stewart around Monaco in 1971, and has now been bought and remastered by Brett Ratner’s production company.

The film now has a 10-minute coda added with Polanski and Stewart, sat in the same Hotel de Paris suite the driver used that weekend in ’71, reflecting about their shared experience 42 years on.

Definitely the oddest couple in Cannes!
