Subject: Grace of Monaco slammed at Cannes Film Festival

Early reviews of Grace of Monaco, the Grace Kelly biopic chosen to open this year's Cannes Film Festival, have slammed the film, with one describing it as "a timeless camp classic".

"It's an easy watch, lush, stylish... and is often side-splittingly funny," Empire's Phil de Semlyen said.

"The trouble is, it's not actually meant to be a comedy."

Laughter was heard during a press screening on Wednesday morning. A gala premiere will take place later.

Set in the 1960s, Olivier Dahan's film focuses on the early years of Grace Kelly's years as a princess when she was tempted to return to Hollywood by an offer from Alfred Hitchcock.

Tim Roth plays her husband, Prince Rainier III, with Robert Lindsay, Spain's Paz Vega and Sir Derek Jacobi filling other roles.
