Many viewers were pleased with the final opinion of the jury, but was in the audience and those to whom the decision of the judges, led by George Miller seemed unfair.

However, to take back the figurine one, of course, will be gone. Victory or defeat should be taken with dignity.

According to the figure in the film, the decision of the jury is always subjective, because it is not necessary to take it to heart: “I do not participate in the contest, because I don’t believe in competition in art. The jury will give prizes to the paintings which many viewers deem boring. And someone will find my movie boring. You can’t decide who is better, just say who you like more, and that’s fine.
