Whatever, it is really about art and talent, it doesn't matter where you come from. From the Middle East you know, I thought to myself I am good but would they give the price to the little girl from the Middle East, I am not so little anymore I am old, but would they give it to an actress from the middle east, yes there is a chance this is the message, if you are good, if you are talented you can get the price because they recognise it , doesn't matter if you are from Russia, from Sri Lanka, you can come from wherever Israel or, and it is nice to know it it is very nice to know it."

SOUNDBITE Tommy Lee Jones: " What surprised me was the quality of the audience yesterday when I watched the movie , I have never seen that many people, 3000 people become of a single open hearted,big hearted open minded, of a single mind..and that way it was the kind of thing you dream about, it is the reason you engage in drama. That is the reason you become a filmmaker or an actor is you think that one day at some point in your life you might see 3000 people come together. " EBU 63.

SOUNDBITE Jim Jarmusch: " Well I would like to say that the great beauty for me of the cannes festival is that it is not about nationalities but it has supported American independent filmmakers as well as those from taiwan and Iran and China and France and Italy and everywhere, so to me that is the beauty of it, I feel so honoured to be among other film makers that live in this country of expression and imagination, I say death to the constraints of nationality and Cannes has been a great place for displaying and celebrating the kind of diversity of people that also are all in the end from tribe somehow.

You can never have enough spectators and I hope I will have even more. It's still not a blockbuster, even though it has a wide distribution, we cannot put it on the same level as Star Wars."

SOUNDBITE (French) Luc Dardenne: "We tried to pick those two characters, those two young people, especially Bruno who lives in that carefree way, who takes what he can where he can, whether money or other things, it's like a person who lives in a primitive society, for example, with a tree where he picks the fruits and eats them, he lives like a savage. Then this child happens to him and then what is he going to do because it's not like an object, it is alive - so what is he going to do about it? Will he be able to take care of it, become a father? This is the question we wanted to ask." Diaphana Distribution 80. Film clip - L'Enfant (The Child) APTN Cannes, 19th May 2005 81. SOUNDBITE Luc Dardenne: "Those characters who live on the edge, we love to film them and we would like people to love them too because even if they make trouble, do things that people can judge as wrong, our problem is not to judge them but to understand how they came to do such things and make the audience understand them and to do that, you have to love those characters, as they love each other, as Sonia loves Bruno. The problem is not to judge those people but to love them and to understand what can happen in their minds, how they are able to do that." Diaphana Distribution 82. Film clip - L'Enfants (The Child) 'THE CHILD' TAKES TOP HONOURS The Belgian film 'The Child,' about a young petty crook suddenly faced with the responsibilities of fatherhood, won top honours Saturday (21MAY05) at the Cannes Film Festival. It was the second time a movie by sibling filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne won the prestigious Palme d'Or. Their teen drama 'Rosetta' took the main Cannes prize six years ago. The award was presented by Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman, who won Academy Awards in February for Clint Eastwood's boxing saga 'Million Dollar Baby.' Receiving the second-place grand prize was U.S. director Jim Jarmusch's 'Broken Flowers,' a drama starring Bill Murray as an aging Don Juan in pursuit of the son he never knew he had. Tommy Lee Jones was honoured as best actor for 'The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,' his feature-film directing debut in which he plays a Texas ranch hand who forces his best friend's killer (Barry Pepper) to dig up the body and haul it for reburial in Mexico. The film also won the screenplay award for Mexican writer Guillermo Arriaga. Hanna Laslo earned the best-actress prize for her role as a gabby cabdriver in Israeli director Amos Gitai's 'Free Zone,' a road-trip tale through the Middle East. Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke received the directing award for "Hidden," ( Cache ) his cryptic thriller about a couple menaced by a video stalker. The third-place jury prize was given to Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai's 'Shanghai Dreams,' a love story set among workers who dutifully obeyed the government's call to relocate to factories in a remote new territory in the 1960s. The award for best film by a first-time director was shared by U.S. filmmaker Miranda July for 'Me and You and Everyone We Know' and Vimukthi Jayasundara of Sri Lanka for "The Forsaken Land." On Friday, Romanian director Cristi Puiu's 'The Death of Mr. Lazarescu,' a tale of a lonely widower living with three cats, won the top prize in a secondary Cannes competition called "Un Certain Regard." July's "Me and You and Everyone We Know," took main honours in a third Cannes category overseen by critics. Awards night was a quieter affair than last year, when firebrand Michael Moore took the top prize, the Palme d'Or, for 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' his scathing critique of President Bush over the Sept. 11 attacks and the Iraq war. The line up of 21 films in the main competition did not produce any universally loathed turkeys like Vincent Gallo's 'The Brown Bunny' two years ago, but it also did not offer any odds-on favourites that had audiences raving. The consensus among Cannes crowds was that the main competition produced a solid but unremarkable crop of films. The main attractions during the 12-day festival were two films that played outside the competition. 'Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith' was the festival's centerpiece, with the sci-fi franchise's creator George Lucas and stars Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson parading down a red carpet swarming with actors in white storm trooper costumes and a black Darth Vader outfit. Woody Allen's 'Match Point,' a comic drama starring Scarlett Johansson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Emily Mortimer, proved to be his most crowd-pleasing film in years. Some critics said it would have been a key contender had it been in the competition. The 58th edition of the world's most prestigious film festival wraps up Sunday with encore screenings of the winners and runners-up. The festival's closing film, British director Martha Fiennes' comic drama 'Chromophobia,' premiered immediately after the awards. The ensemble cast included the director's brother, Ralph Fiennes, plus Penelope Cruz, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ian Holm in the story of a dysfunctional family coming apart at the seams.
