This year’s Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival has been won by Abdellatif Kechiche’s film about a passionate love affair between two women. Steven Spielberg, who was President of this year’s jury called it a “profound love story.” You can watch the video of the awards ceremony and clips from the film.
According to Steven Spielberg, Blue Is The Warmest Colour (“La vie d’Adèle”), which depicts a passionate love affair between two women and has won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a “great love story that anybody can identify with, whatever their sexuality.”
Spielberg said he was certain that the film would find a big audience in the US. “Politics was not in the room with us,” he added, saying that the film won on its own merits. The very same afternoon, an anti-gay marriage protest was taking place in Paris.
