Cannes: Uncle Boonmee Wins Palme d’Or

canneswinner

The 63rd Cannes Film Festival has come to a close. And while I still have a couple more reviews to file, I must first write about the awards. As you know, Tim Burton presided over the official Jury this year at the festival, and Sunday night the prize winners were revealed during the closing Ceremony. Full results after the jump.

Official Winners:

Kristin Scott Thomas hosted Charlotte Gainsbourg on the stage of the Grand Théâtre Lumière to award the Palme d’or to the best film among the 19 films in this year’s Competition. Julie Bertuccelli’s closing film The Tree starring Gainsbourg, was screened at the end of the ceremony.
