The stars once again took to the red carpet to reward the winners of the French review. The jubilee festival was rich with vivid premieres, but the best picture, according to the jury, was the film “the Square”. This film got the Palme d’or.
This year to the Palace of festivals and Congress hall was the centre of attention, because there was the jubilee, the 70th Cannes film festival. The jury of the main competition was headed by famed Spanish Director Pedro Almodovar, and in the program “UN certain regard” winner had to determine Uma Thurman.
By the way, the Muse of Quentin Tarantino’s favourites announced the day before: the main award was given to Mohammad Rasoulof behind the tape “Incorruptible.” Also the jury prize was awarded to the painting “Daughter Abril” by Michel Franco.
However, the intrigue remained until Sunday evening, when it became known to the holders of all of the Cannes branches. So, the jury prize in the main program was given to Andrey Zvyagintsev and his drama “Dislike”. Tape literally “jumped on the leaving train” because it took the show one of the last, and the production designer had a rush job to do editing. However, since the premiere Zvyagintsev was considered one of the favourites for the prestigious film award. His new work tells of the problems in a simple Russian family, the divorce tired of each other spouses and their son, which greatly affect parents quarrel.
Awards were given the Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix (for the main role in the film “You were never here”) and Diane Kruger (for playing in the drama “To the limit”).The main struggle, according to critics, had to turn around between the films “Fatal temptation” and “120 BPM”. Not dropping specialists from the accounts and Michael Haneke, who went to Cannes record, and could get a third major award in his career. As a result, the winner of the Palme d’or was Ruben Östlund with the tape “Square”, which was not even considered as favorite.
Sofia Coppola was satisfied with the prize for best Director (“Fatal temptation”), and the Grand Prix of the contest has awarded Robin Campillo (“120 BPM”). Haneke remained without awards.
Not less debate caused and stellar outfits: celebrities of all kinds chose a truly Royal dress for the jubilee closing ceremony.
