Cannes 2005 Winners! Dardennes, Jarmusch, and Tommy Lee Jones!

The directors of Rosetta and The Son, two films I dearly love, have just won the coveted Palme D’Or at Cannes for their latest film The Child. America may not know it, the Academy is too narrow-minded to appreciate it, but the Dardennes Brothers are two of the finest filmmakers in the world.

Jim Jarmusch and Bill Murray should be thrilled, having won the Grand Prize for Broken Flowers.

And Best Actor… Tommy Lee Jones??

    I can’t wait for Tideland, plus it was filmed in my home province of Saskatchewan.

    After The Son made a whopping $65,000 in the U.S., winning the Palm might have been the only way The Child gets American distribution. Good job, jurors.
