Gullpalmen til The Tree of Life

I går ble Terrence Malicks "The Tree of Life" belønnet med den gjeve prisen.

Juryformann Robert De Niro delte ut Gullpalmen (Palme d'Or) på Cannes Filmfestival i går til regissør Terrence Malicks "The Tree of life" om livets spørsmål med Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, og Sean Penn i hovedrollene. To av filmens produsenter Dede Gardner og Bill Pohlad mottok prisen for Malick som ikke var tilstede. Dette var noe av det Bill Pohlad sa etter at prisen ble mottatt:

"I have always wanted to speak French, and tonight more than ever. Tonight I have to take the place of a giant. Terrence Malick is very shy and discreet. But I spoke to him today and I know he is very happy to receive this honour. The Tree Of Life was a long journey, but it was all worth it. I would like to thank especially the Festival de Cannes."
