Fatih Akin (The Edge of Heaven) gave out the awards for the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival last night. The top prize was honored to Sergei Dvortsevoy's Tulpan; the film is set in Kazakhstan and co-produced by Germany, Poland, Russia and Switzerland. The jury also awarded four other prizes, though I have no idea what their importance is:
The Jury Prize (which I would imagine to be second prize): Tokyo Sonata - dir. Kiyoshi Kurosawa - Japan/Netherlands
Coup de Cœur Award: Cloud 9 [Wolke Neun] - dir. Andreas Dresen - Germany
KO Prize (I hope that isn't just a stupid pun): Tyson - dir. James Toback - USA
Hope Prize: Johnny Mad Dog - dir. Jean-François Sauvaire - France
The prizes of the official selection, including the Palme d'Or should be announced later today.
