my 1st thought. was this a surprise parasite all of the it was 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 usually means it wins nothing this time the jury agree with me 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 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 thriller it's about a family of 4 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 2000 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 brilliant new movie brilliant brilliantly done wonderfully executed and
12:03 am
a really deserved winner it sounds like there's a thriller aspect story 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 if you up that you mentioned. also a very very good film 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 prizes and can but it's also a real 1st because this is the 1st time this instant 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 they're 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. it's a bit of
12:04 am
a ghost story difficult to explain in a couple of couple of seconds but very wary well worth watching 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 tony harris who certainly not a 1st timer won for best actor yes also deserved completely completely deserved. in pain and glory which is from. the spanish director this film is essentially of ours the life story is slightly fictionalized but it's the story of a gay spanish director who comes up through the sixty's and seventy's and becomes the international star blah. plays of 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
12:05 am
a fan but he really reaches another career high with one of the reason why i opened 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 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 and launches for. amazing film really well received by the critics but maybe terms he was just too big he doesn't need another palme d'or it would be nice to get 125 years after he is clearly got started with with pulp fiction but i don't actually think he'll be upset by this because he's a huge fan of obama calls him 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. so rahm has been sworn in as

12:12 am
victory to my lot so you've had some very serious really dangerous chances notes abusive posts and come very close to giving them a lead after just about 10 minutes. in fact so you had perhaps the best of the chances for the game certainly until the last 20 minutes they were wasteful in front of goal and as we know them ruthlessly clinical. and kingsley come on. and it's fair to say that in each of the 3 goes there was some serious individual brilliance involved. now the 19th german cup hard to win by munich from history and 12 and cup doubles some incredible statistics so it was wasteful as you put it but how would you describe what exactly made the difference for byron well i mean like i said lots of ways for. the complete opposite they were very cold in front of go they punished lot 6 for every mistake that the defenders made they didn't
12:13 am
necessarily like i said have the best chances really in the game but whenever they got close they dispatched them very expertly you know. those game kings we come on can always be decisive in the game and at the back as well manuel neuer who we see lifting a cop behind us had a fantastic performance he made some very big saves. in the 2nd half as well as on in the. crucial moments a real captain's performance from manuel neuer so listen i mean byron has won the league yet again and yet there's speculation that their manager called dutch is going to be sacked today's event how did that change his job. and he made him a lot more safe in the job now speculation of his future has followed him throughout the season of course you know it started when. bruce you don't win but way ahead in the front of the front of the boom is legal but if he's going to be judged on results you'd have to say he looks very very safe and league and cup double for him personally it was
12:14 am
a back to back german cups because of course he won the german cup last year against by munich with his then team front so he's a vengeance the defeat that he inflicted on his current club it would be very odd i think if he were to go and there's no serious indication anymore but that is going to happen so i think he's probably fairly safe going forward an emotional day on all sides. tom going to sports thanks so much thank you the spanish cup final also took place on saturday in favorites barcelona were beaten by valencia the underdogs scored twice in the 1st half after the break leno messi scored late in the match but the lengths you held on to claim a $21.00 victory winning their 9th copa del rey title. visitors are flocking to resume in mexico after a baby jaguar made her debut. states cute new star is this 2 month old female precious animal but she's not just adorable she's also an important success where
