Why Cantona is 'a very good actor'


Manchester United icon Eric Cantona is returning to the city for the UK premiere of Ken Loach's new film, Looking for Eric.

It tells the story of a postman who searches for resolution after a string of failed relationships, and finds it comes in the form of visitations from his footballing hero.

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, Cantona and Loach talked about the movie and what they thought of each other as colleagues.
