Cannes Film Festival – Of Winners and More

The curtain has fallen on the 64th International Cannes Film Festival – a fun-filled, if contentious edition of this most grande dame of film festivals.

The winners, please:

The Palme d’Or: The Tree of Life by director Terrence Malick

The notoriously elusive director stayed away from the limelight during Cannes, not doing any press or interviews at all, so it was no surprise then, that he didn’t appear to accept the award. Producers Bill Pohlad and Dede Gardner accepted the award. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pohlad explained at the closing night dinner that Malick was back home in Austin, but was very excited -“he just likes to be private: that’s just his way.”

Best Actress – Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia

Best Director – Nicolas Winding Refn, for Drive

South African film Skoonheid didn’t score the Un Certain Regard Prix – that went to Korean director Kim Ki-duk who did everything in his film, from editing to starring in it. But the movie did pick up the Queer Palm, which is an award that’s given to films contributing to lesbian, bi, gay, or transgender issues. It’s not part of the official festival, but an honour nonetheless.

  1. I’m commenting to let you be aware of of the awesome discovery my child developed browsing the blog. She came to find a good number of details, including how it is like to have a great coaching character to get certain people completely comprehend a number of advanced issues. You actually did more than her desires. I appreciate you for coming up with such effective, dependable, edifying and cool guidance on that topic to Emily.

  5. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more
    useful than ever before.

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking
    about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could
    be giving us something informative to read?

  8. It’s actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use internet for that
    purpose, and get the newest information.

  9. wonderful post, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of
    this sector do not notice this. You must proceed your writing.
    I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  10. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
