jury of the Cannes Film Festival, whose word is strong for many first-class "is not a movie for everyone," will soon begin meeting - in fact today the opening of an expected event.Before you think, who will take the "Palme d'Or" this year, Dni.Ru offer their readers to trace the fate of the paintings that won at Cannes in the past 10 years. not reached the addressee
Even the proud in the Filmmakers environment recognized that participation in the Cannes Film Festival has played - and will play in their creative destinies of a great role, at times even a statuette "Oscar" it seems they are not as cherished as a treasured Cannes "branch".Traditionally, it is Cannes in cinema as in Paris perfumes are tastemakers and fashion in the industry, while the Hollywood in recent years, many associated with the commercialization of art and profanity.However, no matter how attractive shining winner of the crown, not all gold that glitters, attracting audience not many movies, climb to the top of Mount Olympus Cann
So, picture the brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenn "Rosetta," which won the "Golden Palm" exactly ten years ago, and was covered with dust on the shelves of the time music and video stores.Why the film has attracted critics and jury, the case seems clear: the story of a young lady, throw in search of work and away from drinking mother, attracts everyone - fans of the first literary soap opera "Jane Eyre", and admirers of "The 400 Blows" Truffaut.Why is the film did not get into the hands of Russian viewers - it is clear: in 1999, our own film industry only hatch from the shell of the post-Soviet hibernation, and we barely have time to keep track of Western action, not to mention the Art House.How is it that the "Rosetta", with 8 international awards, has not reached many Europeans - is unknown.
Nevertheless, it is remarkable fate of the creators of the image of this sweet girl.Emily Dekenn became "best actress" five times, and from the moment of triumph at Cannes coexisted with Vincent Cassel in a mystical thriller "Brotherhood of the Wolf".And both directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenn, became laureates of Cannes at 6 years old, in 2005.Drama about a monstrous violation mendicant husband - selling of the baby on the black market - eventually ended up in prison, "child", became "palmonosnym" comeback Dardenn brothers in Cannes.However, the effect produced on the audience a picture of "The Child" (earned in addition to the "branch" of another 10 important awards), even could not smash success, which in the same year made paintings that have received the "Grand Prix" and "special prize" - "Brokenflowers "by Jim Jarmusch and" sin City "by Robert Rodriguez.
Somewhat better is the situation around the owner of "Golden Palm" in 2007 - Romanian painting Cristian Mungiu "4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days".In the film one of the characters is pregnant and an abortion, banned at the time, almost the first counter person to pay for services which account for her friend, and his own virginity.The reason And this psychological drama earned success in European countries, it is clear: in addition to the artistic value of the reel of film has also a political one.As described in the picture of the time - the last years of Ceausescu - Romania was a country actually vlezshey into debt to the neighbors in the late '80s, because the film can be considered Mungiu nominated even for the "Golden Globe", a kind of nod to the naterpevshis neighbors.
peculiar regular at Cannes on the list is the "Italian Woody Allen" Nanni Moretti: He got this nickname for what made it a rule take itself a leading role in their own comedy films.Before you grab the first prize in 2001 with the film "The Son's Room", Moretti rose up for the "Palme d'Or" five times, once in the competition program of the festival with the debut picture "Ecce bombo".Get the victory, however, Moretti happened with the film into a completely opposite sense: tortured story of a psychoanalyst who has lost a son, but still forced to treat someone else's injury, there is a collective image of the US "Patch Adams" with Robin Williams, and later "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" (getCannes Cannes best Director award in th 2007)."The Son's Room" won 9 European film awards festival, and, nevertheless, almost did not get the resonance of ordinary viewers.
can not be said about the painting masters harsh realism of Ken Loach's "The Wind That Shakes the Barley": his chosen topic - Ireland's struggle for independence - as often happens with his paintings, it was the most important.Until now, in this state of Western Europe do not cease controversy associated with awareness of their own individual and agrarian.Century is back on the barricades were fierce battles with the British army - the importance of the described problems and mastery of its presentation of a British classic Ken Loach brought a picture of victory at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, and less educated in the "other movie" the audience gave the opportunity to explore the work of this director.
Some films, passed through the thorns to Gangnam, yet fortunate enough to become famous not only among the festival audience, but also fancy a wider audience, even in Russia, where the mass audience is not as sensitive to European victories.
is true, for example, the winner of last year's Cannes, the film "Class" (original title "Entre les murs") Lorena Kant, because of the name is often confused with the Estonian film Ilmar Raag about violent teenagers.In the picture, too, Kant tells of a teenager, but at an angle less radical: it is a year of life in the classroom the French school for immigrant children, those new to the language and history of the country in which they live.The film by Laurent Conte struck a chord and American academics, nominated him for "Oscar" - a Russian adaptation of the biography of François Begodo introduced Sam Klebanov.In the wake of the popularity of the film by Valeria Gai Germanicus "Everybody Dies But Me" anemic picture here Conte looked particularly contrasting.
Among Winners "Palme d'Or" could not be kinopamflet Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11", whose victory at the Film Festival in 2004, marked an ironic Cannes positioning among its existence and described the political attitude of filmmakers to America.Timely response to Moore on developments in Afghanistan, the incompetence of George Bush and the tragedy of September 11, 2001 brought the world-famous director and his movie film as much as 20 awards, including, among other things, the Association of the Hollywood awards, the Washington Film Critics Association Award, and even Sarajevo.
call system a year before Michael Moore gave up and conformist among art-house artists Gus Van Sant with the film "Elephant" - in 2003, in addition to the main prize, he took from Cannes two more awards, including for "Best Director" and the prize of the Nationalthe French educational system.The film, which has become the hallmark of Van Sant in pop culture while simultaneously breathed life and existing cinematic motif: the teenage terror and opposition to the adult world rules started it yet, "The generals sand pits", and in contemporary culture a little later presented "Chumscrubber" Arie Posin, the above-mentioned works of Conte, Raag and Germanicus, and many others.
most expected, but no less deserved victory in Cannes was a reel of film by Lars von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark": the film received in 2000 the first prize, completes the trilogy of the director, whose part was the film, has already entered the golden world cinema fund- "Breaking the waves" and "Idiots."The story of a blind woman, the risk of their health and their lives for the future of his son, shocked viewers around the world also because the main role in the film played by Icelandic singer Bjork.And if her Australian colleagues presented the picture of Ken Loach's "The Wind That Shakes the Barley," a name that is the case with "Dancer in the Dark" is already very Björk has endowed his character some of his qualities - detachment, spontaneity, originality of thought, the atmosphere of the unknown.The film was awarded 21 prizes, but "Oscar" had led "Gladiator" by Ridley Scott.
Finally, the absolute champion in number of awards, prizes and a People's Choice Award winner "The Pianist" in 2002 Cannes Film Festival.Picture Roman Polanski has found an echo in the hearts of the entire world community: the theme of the Second World War and the genocide of peoples and still alive in the hearts of men.Sadly, the composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, which is based on the biography of Adrien Brody took his way to the "Oscar" did not live up to the premiere of the film and the victory.In addition, the film won three Academy Awards, "Palme d'Or" and 40 awards, is a reminder of the first Cannes Film Festival, scheduled for 1939 and the canceled because of World War II.Similar movies, able to stand on a par with the works of Fellini, Antonioni, Pasolini, Visconti and other classics of world cinema, - a sort of diamond in the crown of any film festival, and the fact that they still find a way out at the viewer, gives hope for a long life goodcinema.
