897

The 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival takes place from 14 to 25 May 2019.  Here’s the list of winners of this year’s biggest film festival! 

Palme d’Or: Parasite, Bong Joon-ho

“Shifts tonal gears in total service of its class politics, infecting the film’s breezy dark-comedy with notes of rage and melancholy,” – A.A. Dowd for AV Club.

 

Grand Prix: Atlantics, Mati Diop

The leading streaming service Netflix took Grand Prix award for Atlantics, and I Lost My Body.

 

Jury Prize (tie): Les Misérables, Ladj Ly, and Bacurau, Kleber Mendonça Filho, Juliano Dornelles.

“Since the election of Macron, there’s more social problems. We’ve been protesting these conditions in our cities for 20 years, but nothing is happening. Before, people didn’t care because it was the suburbs, but now it touches everyone in France,” says director about the main theme of his movie.

 

Best Actress: Emily Beecham, Little Joe

Little Joe is a Science Fiction movie drama of 2019, directed by Jessica Hausner. The world premiere of the film will take place on May 17, 2019, at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, where it will take part in the main competition program for the Golden Palm.

Alice, the single mother, works as a senior breeder in a corporation engaged in the development of new species. Through breeding, she grows a special new plant, remarkable not only by its beauty but also its therapeutic properties: if it is stored at an ideal temperature, properly fed and talked with it regularly, this plant makes its owner happy.

 

Best Actor: Antonio Banderas, Pain & Glory

“Pain and Glory is Almodóvar’s best work for years, marvellously framed and composed, comparatively restrained for him, hugely enjoyable moment by moment,” says David Sexton.

 

Best Director: Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne, The Young Ahmed

“This won’t be the Belgian brothers’ third – it feels too slight for that – but it’s subtly provocative and powerfully acted by the young newcomer Idir Ben Addi,” commented Ed Potton.

 

Best Screenplay and Queer Palm (Feature): Céline Sciamma, Portrait of a Lady on Fire

The top critic Stephanie Zacharek says, “It’s a great example of how a well-told story, with vivid characters, can seep right into your bones and keep you thinking for days afterward-and the pleasure felt while watching it isn’t negligible either.”

 

Special Mention of the Jury: It Must Be Heaven, Elia Suleiman

“Affably self-effacing meta-commentary blankets the film, skewering the very notion of a standard-bearing national artist by revealing how tenuous geographic borderlines can be,” according to Charles Bramesco.

 

Camera d’Or: Our Mothers, César Díaz

“This is an appealingly dignified, humane story of the repercussions of the little-known civil war in Guatemala in the 1980s as borne by the country’s women,” Fionnuala Halligan said.

 

Short Film Palme d’Or and Queer Palm (Short): The Distance Between Us And The Sky, Vasilis Kekatos
