The curtain 69-th Cannes film festival, the Directorate has been saving something serious – two drum pattern – “Salesman” Iranian Director Asghar Farhadi and “She” by Paul Verhoeven. To confuse the map and all previous forecasts – favorite thing. For the first time since the closing ceremony of the show not some special movie to entertain the audience and attract stars in the end of movie marathons and film, became the owner of “Golden palm”.

On the eve of their prizes were awarded, the jury “UN certain regard”, which was attended by “the Apprentice” by Kirill Serebrennikov. Grand Prix here awarded “the Happiest day in the life of Olli Maki Kuosmanen Juho from Finland, the jury prize went to “Harmony” of Fukada koji” is from Japan and is noted for directing the “Fantastic captain” Matt Ross. The FIPRESCI jury said “Toni Erdmann” Maren Ade(Germany) from the main competition. And Ecumenical jury – a picture of a young canadian Director Xavier Dolan about dying from AIDS 34-year-old guy.
The best films of this festival were: “Toni Erdmann”, “Paterson” by Jim Jarmusch (USA), “She” Polverone (France), “Aquarius” Kleber mendonça Filho (Brazil), “Prom” Christian Mungiu (Romania), “still waters run deep”, Bruno Dumont (France). Excellent acting raboty Isabelle Huppert in “She,” Sonia Braga” in “Aquarius” and Sandra Hyuller and Peter Simonescu of “Toni Erdmann”.
77-year-old Director of Dutch origin, working mainly in the USA, Paul Verhoeven felt that this French character, as hardly anyone before him. And chose for his incarnation – the symbol of France Isable Huppert. Long ago she didn’t have such a powerful work, perhaps, since “White material” Claire Denis. It was filmed in the Philippines from Mendoza and South Korea. Something was looking for and finally found. Verhoeven and Huppert looked on opening day calmly and confidently. Obviously, and do understand that he has done something serious. While Romanian girl victims of violence, and her parents in the movie “Prom” Christian Mungiu heartbroken over the incident, the French extracted the maximum from the most deplorable situation, and never lose heart. An example of such vitality – the heroine Huppert. She boldly goes to meet the maniac, as if your whole life dreaming about him. She is merciless to himself, and ready for anything. Ready for anything and the actress, for which there is nothing forbidden. Her unprecedented courage. “She” completely unpredictable pattern. I think that it’s a Thriller, and then suddenly everything turns into a Grand Comedy.
May 19, its “Palme d’or”- “The Palm Dog”, albeit posthumously, but got the dog from the movie “Paterson” by Jim Jarmusch. And this is a precedent. Ever yet are not rewarded dogs after death. There is at the Cannes film festival it’s tradition to award the best dog starring in the movie. At this time, and guessing is not particularly necessary. All agreed that it would be Nelly, who starred in “Paterson”. She was welcomed home returning from work bus driver, was with him for a walk. Poor dog, it’s British bulldog not bear the stress. A month after filming, she died. Reported that the lead actor, Adam Driver. So Jarmusch could not write in the credits that no animals during the filming of his movie was not injured. The dog also participated in the film “I, Daniel Blake,” Ken Loach. And Gary is the one that starred in “the Maid”, was even on the red carpet before the premiere. It was a French bulldog.Related posts:
