10:02 pm
finally they got it right no this is an amazing film it is the 1st time a korean film has won the top prize in cannes but june hole is a very established director and well known in cannes he's been competition number of times before this film is really incredible it's sort of a sort of comedy hitchcockian 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 tooth and has become intertwined and the film is so delicately done that you're not quite sure as the film goes on who is actually conning who is the actual parasite of the film's title bill brilliant movie brilliant brilliantly done wonderfully executed and a really deserved winner it sounds like there's some thriller aspects to it much thriller but also very very funny and beautifully shot i mean every part of this film works perfectly any other surprises at the festival the number 2 prize amount of the up that you mentioned. also very very good film
10:03 pm
a surprise just because she's a 1st time film director and usually a 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 a process but she's also an actress and that really shows in the performances that she gets out of our actors in this film it's set in 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 all 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 of couple of seconds but really wary well worth watching and and really shows 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 tonio bindi. certainly not
10:04 pm
a 1st timer one for best actor yes also completely completely deserved. in pain and glory which is from. a director this film is essentially the 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 the international star blah blah. plays of our character and beautifully there's a wonderful sort of broken heart love story man that he used to love he 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. this segment 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. hollywood. caprio and brad
