- Story Text: The cast and director of 'Zodiac' walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 17) for the film's European premiere.
The film, in competition at the festival, is based on the true story of the unlikely quest by Robert Graysmith, a cartoonist on the San Francisco Chronicle, to identify a 1960s serial killer known as the Zodiac.
"Zodiac", which has already opened in the United States, has had generally positive reviews.
Its recreation of the atmosphere of San Francisco in the 1960's and 70's is meticulous and it conveys a huge amount of information as the investigation tails off and Graysmith, who wrote the book the film is based on, carries on alone.
The Cannes Film Festival runs until May 27.
