My charming Sean Penn was the head the jury this year for the 61st Cannes Festival that started on the 14th and ended tonight. And he and the others decided on a french movie for the Palme d’Or. Last time we won was in 1987 with “under the sun of Satan” by Maurice Pialat so it was about time !
the movie is called “entre les murs” by Laurent Cantet. It means between the walls but who knows why, they translated it by “the class”. Anyhoo, I guess I’ll have to watch it and check by myself cause honestly, no matter how much I admire Sean Penn, it seems like every year, the Festival gives awards to the weirdest movies ever.
oh and Benicio Del Toro got awarded “best actor” for his role as “Che” in Steven Soderbergh’s movie.
