Palme d’Or (Best Foreign  film). Ken Loach for Me, Daniel Blake (I, Daniel Blake) was awarded the biggest award. His film follows on the Kafkaesque route of an unemployed forced to ask for social assistance. It is the second supreme distinction in Cannes for the British director, after The wind is rising in 2006. “This world in which we live is in a dangerous situation” because the ideas “we call neo-liberal (… ) Are likely to lead us to catastrophe, “said the British filmmaker when receiving his award. I hate to say he is so right.

Grand Prix ( Best Director). The Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival was awarded to Just the End of the World by 27-year-old Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan, a high-profile, high-profile family with Gaspard Ulliel, Vincent Cassel and Marion Cotillard.

Prix d’interprétation masculine. The Iranian actor Shahab Hosseini, who received the male performance award for The Customer, is a loyal follower of Asghar Farhadi. In this feature-length film, the 42-year-old comedian performs with actress Taraneh Alidousti a couple of actors who are confronted with exciting events while playing “Death of a traveling salesman” by Arthur Miller. great film there.

Prix du jury. (Award of the  jury). Andrea Arnold for American Honey. This is the third time she has received this distinction. Great film here too I am glad she got it. She got snub at the oscar. Revenge is sweet.

Prix de la mise-en-scène. . The French Olivier Assayas for Personal Shopper and the Romanian Cristian Mungiu for Baccalaureate. In this last film, Cristian Mungiu sees the compromises and corruption in Romanian society. Personal Shopper tells the story of a young woman, Maureen, who hopes to get in touch with her missing twin brother.
