takes office and. we hear from our correspondent about the challenges he faces. a michael thanks for joining us the 2019 cannes film festival has come to a close with a star studded award ceremony the festival's top prize the palme d'or went to south korean director bob hope for his black comedy parasite the prize for a parasite marks the 1st korean film ever to win the honor for best film at cannes the festival 2nd place award the grand prize went to french senegalese director of film atlantis i'm joined now by scott rock star from our culture desk wow. my 1st thought. was. surprise parasite well of the it was
9:02 pm
a surprise for me because this is the 1st time that the jury and i have agreed on what should win won the palme d'or going there many many years parasite was my favorite film this year that usually means it wins nothing this time the jury agree with me finally they got it right no this is amazing film it is the 1st time a korean film has won the top prize in cannes but junho is a very established director and well known in cannes has been accomplished a number of times before this film is really incredible it's sort of a sort of comedy hitchcock in a thriller it's about a family of poor family of a sort of a small time con artist who managed to con their way into a rich family's home and start working for them and so the 2 families become intertwined and the film is so delicately done that you're not quite sure as the film goes on who's actually conning who is the actual parasite of the film's title good movie brilliant brilliantly done wonderfully executed and a really deserved winner it sounds like there's some thriller aspects journey much
9:03 pm
thriller but also a very very funny and beautifully shot of every part of this film works perfectly any other surprises at the festival the number 2 prize amount to the up that you mentioned. also a very very good film a surprise just because she's a 1st time film director and to jli 1st time directors don't have much of a chance to win top prize in cannes but it's also a real 1st because this is the 1st time this is she's the 1st black woman to ever have a film in competition in cannes and and it was quite impressive she's also an actress and that really shows in the performances that she gets out of our actors in this film it's senegal where she's from and it's sort of the refugee story but it's told from the other side not from the european side which is often the case here but it's told from the people who are left behind when there are the women who are left behind when their men try to flee over the atlantic to europe but it's just that it's also a supernatural elements it's a bit of a ghost story difficult to explain in a couple. couple of seconds but very wary well worth watching and really shows
9:04 pm
a very impressive debut performance i mean for a 36 year old 1st time director to deliver a movie like this is really beyond belief and tony harris who certainly not a 1st timer won for best actor also deserved it completely deserve completely deserved. stars in pain and glory which is from. the spanish director this film is essentially of ours life story is slightly fictionalized but it's a story of a gay spanish director who comes up through the sixty's and seventy's and becomes less international star blah blah. plays our character and beautifully this wonderful sort of broken heart love story man that he used to love meets again 32 years later anyone who loves stones will love this movie and i mean i've always been a fan but he really reaches another career high with the sort of opened the segment
9:05 pm
by saying wow is the fact that there was so much noise being made. and yet i see he is not in the winnings you know he was he was locked out this year his film was hollywood which caprio and brad pitt was a great great movie one of my favorites really shows and also at the top of his powers and this is 25 years since he won. the palme d'or for pulp fiction a launch this year was a pothole he's amazing film really really well received by the critics but maybe turned he was just too big he doesn't really need another palme d'or it would be nice to get 125 years after he is clearly got started with. but i don't actually think he'll be upset by this because he's a huge fan of. the best director in asia so i think he'd be satisfied that he got the top prize thank you for adding color to the cannes film festival wrappings thanks so much. sirrah has been sworn in as president of south africa after
