beating in the german cup final. 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 and hove 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 . atlanta i'm joined now by scott rock star from our culture desk wow. my 1st thought. was this a surprise parasite well the it was a surprise for me because this is the 1st time. the jury and i have agreed on what
should win the palme d'or for 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 now 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 stylish 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 2000 has 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 brilliant new 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 a 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 to the 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 is she's the 1st black woman to ever have a film in competition in jan and and it was quite a process 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 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 elements it's a bit of a ghost story difficult to explain in a couple of couple of seconds but very wary well worth watching and and really shows. 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 deserved completely deserved. in pain and glory which is from. a director this film is essentially of ours life story is slightly fictionalized but it's a story of a again a 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 this wonderful sort of broken heart love story man that he used to love he meets again 32 years later anyone who loves. 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 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 really well received by the critics but maybe tend to use just too big. a nother palme d'or. 25 years after he is clearly got started with with pulp fiction i don't actually think by this because he's a huge fan of. the best director in asia so i think he'd be satisfied if you got the top right thank you for adding color to the cannes film festival wrappings thanks so much. ciro rem oppose a has been sworn in as president of south africa after being returned to office in elections earlier this month he's promised a new dawn for the country which suffers from high crime slumping economic growth

3 goes there was some serious individual brilliance involved that has now the 19th german cup hard to win by munich history and 12th 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 the defenders made they didn't necessarily like i said have the best chances really in the game but whenever they got close they just box them very expertly you know. but live in those things we come on can always be decisive in the game and at the back as well manuel neuer who we see lifting a couple had a fantastic performance he made some very big saves. on the 2nd half as well as on in the. crucial moments a real captain's performance from manuel neuer so listen i mean biron has won the
league yet again and yet there's speculation that their manager called dutch is going to be sacked how did today's event how did that change his job but. 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 dortmund were way ahead in the front of the front of the women's league about 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 a back to back german cops 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 that that is going to happen so i think he's probably fairly safe going forward an emotional day on all sides. sports thanks so much thank you. the spanish cup final also took place on saturday in favorites bush alona were beaten by valencia the
underdogs scored twice in the 1st half after the break you know 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 baby jaguar made her debut to skala states q is this 2 month old female but she's just adorable she's also an important success for the zoo's breeding program for the threatened species farm expansion poaching and the loss of habitat are the main threats to javelins which is one of 6 feline species found in the country. and a reminder of the top stories we're following for you a dark comedy by south korean director fong junho becomes the 1st movie from that country to win the palme d'or for best film at the cannes international festival.
