Cannes is done

Another year and another Cannes Festival is over. The winner of Palme D'or is Michael Haneke for "Das Weisse Band" ("White ribbon"). It's a story about children and teenagers of a choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers. Strange accidents occur and gradually take on the character of a punishment ritual. Frankly I think this is going to be a very good movie and hope it will be screened at the New Horizons Festival in Wrocław, Poland in July this year.

The best actress award went to one of my favorites Charlotte Gainsbourg for "Antichrist". A movie by Lars von Trier is about a married couple (husband played by Willem Dafoe), who go for an away retreat at "Eden", where in their cabin in the woods they're trying to fix their marriage. The movie comes out in Poland this Friday so I'm definitely going to check it out!!!

The best actor award went to Christoph Waltz for "Inglorious Bastards". I've already written about this movie by Quentin Tarantino. A lot of people all around the world can't wait to see it (me including;). The movie comes out his summer and definitely as every Tarantino movie it is going to be a great hit.
