Cannes 2009: Sidebar Awards Round-up

FIPRESCI, Critics’ Week and Un Certain Regard award their prizes.

by | May 24, 2009 | Comments

It’s the final day of the Cannes Film Festival today, and following yesterday’s announcement of the Director’s Fortnight awards, now we have word from Critics Week and FIPRESCI ahead of tonight’s official competition ceremony. Meanwhile, the festival’s official sidebar, Un Certain Regard (UCR), has also announced its results.

UCR, which presented 20 films from 20 different countries, has given its top prize to Greek repression drama Kynodontas (Dogtooth). Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, it’s a tale of three teenage children who are completely cut off from the outside world by their parents.

This year’s selection featured works by named auteurs like Bong Joon-ho and Hirokazu Kore-eda who went home empty-handed. Precious, directed by Lee Daniels and starring Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and Mo’Nique, also failed to scoop an award, despite tremendous praise for its handling of its subject matter and performances.
