Great list of winners at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and, to my delight, one of my most anticipated movies of 2011 ended up with the Palme d’Or. Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life amazed me a couple of months before with an intriguing trailer and a perfect poster (that you can see above), and now this award can only contribute to the hype.
Other than pissing off Cannes by joking about Hitler, Lars Von Trier went home with an award for his new film Melancholia (best actress for Kirsten Dunst), while Nicolas Winding Refn’s first Hollywood film also impressed the jury, Drive winning the award for Best Director.

Next up on the awesome festival schedule: TIFF, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania – and only the second time I am not able to attend, in the last 9 years.
