Palme d’Or To Belgium’s Dardenne Brothers

A Belgian drama has won the top prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. “L’Enfant is a gritty urban tale of a young couple living on the breadline in France, directed by brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne… It was the second Palme d’Or for the Dardenne brothers, having previously been awarded the prize in 1999 for controversial drama Rosetta. US director Jim Jarmusch’s Broken Flowers, starring Bill Murray as an aging Don Juan searching for a son he did not know he had, won the Grand Prix award – the runner-up for best film.”
