Second thoughts in Cannes


Cannes film festival head Gilles Jacob called for this year's top prize to be awarded for film—making, not politics.
" was a question of a satirical tract that was awarded a prize more for political than cinematographic reasons, no matter what the jury said.
"...the jury's acclaim for that documentary was an out of the ordinary event that probably won't be repeated"

Jury president Kusturica said jurors would judge films on their aesthetics when choosing this year's winners.
