The singer/Beck collaborator took Cannes’ top honors for Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist, which “provoked fainting, gasps and walk-outs with its shots of a clitoris being sliced off with rusty scissors and male genitals smashed with a plank.” Watch the trailer.
I could be wrong but I think only the best film wins the Palm D’or, which went to the White Ribbon this year…. Charlotte Gainsbourg just took home the best actress prize.
Following some google research, looks like I was way off. I’ll just shut my big yapper now.
No, you were right the first time. The Palm d’Or is the name of the award specifically given out to the best film. You made me second guess myself, but I checked Varietyadn the official Cannes website.
ugh. that did not make me want to watch the trailer. many :(s for the description
It spells Palme. And yes CR’s right !
You guys are right re: Palme D’or, fixed.
This movie will undoubtedly be the greatest. ever.
Fainting, gasps and walk-outs, huh? Her daddy would have been so proud.
Catherine Breillat and Gaspar Noe just collectively yawned…
