Cannes: Ryan Gosling starrer violent revenge drama 'Only God Forgives' was booed during its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film that sees Gosling team up with director Nicolas Winding Refn after their earlier collaboration 'Drive' was premiered at the festival yesterday but Cannes audience did not warm to the story of a revenging brother, played by Gosling.
The screening witnessed jeers and walkouts by the audience during its most violent scenes that included mutilation and torture scenes.

Gosling sent a letter explaining that he missed the premiere as he was busy with his directorial debut 'How to Catch a Monster'.
"Can't believe I'm not in Cannes. I was hoping to come but I'm on week three shooting my film in Detroit. Miss you all. Nicolas, my friend, we really are the same persons in different dimensions. I'm sending you good vibrations."
The film is set for a July 19 release in the US. The story follows Gosling as Julian, who is forced by his mother to track down and kill the person responsible for his brother's death.
