[Photo/Agencies]French movie Dheepan, directed by Jacques Audiard, won the Palme dOr for the Best Film at the 68th Festival de Cannes on Sunday, while the Best Director Award was given to Hou Hsiao-Hsien.Dheepan is about the story of a former soldier, a young woman and a little girl pose as a family in order to escape the civil war in Sri Lanka. They end up settling in a housing project outside Paris. They barely know one another, but try to build a life together.This is the fourth time that Audiards movies enter the main competition of the Festival de Cannes. He won the Best Screenplay Award for A Self-Made Hero in 1996, and Grand Prize of the Jury for A Prophet in 2009.Another important award, the Best Director Award was given to Hou Hsiao-Hsien of Chinas Taiwan, for directing the movie Nie Yinniang (The Assassin).During the press conference after the closing ceremony, Hou said he was not disappointed not to win the Palme dOr.”Only a certain number of films can get a prize,” Hou said, adding that “if you believe in what youre doing, it really doesn t matter if you get a prize or not.”Asked about why he wanted to make this film during a press conference after the screening of Nie Yinniang, Hou said: “the story took place in Tang Dynasty which was a very glamorous dynasty in Chinese history. Women had an even higher place than men at that time. So I thought it would be very interesting.”During an exclusive interview with Xinhua recently at the festival, the famous director revealed how he directed the movie Nie Yinniang.”I didnt direct at all! I just gave them the script and they will have to read it. Then we didnt have rehearsals and they all played according to what they read,” he explained.Previous Page1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next Page8.03KRelated ArticlesHighlights of Chinas Night at 68th Cannes Film FestivalParis Hilton flouts no selfie rule at CannesPet Shop Boys power Jia Zhangkes Cannes entryCannes steps into trouble with high-heels dress codeTrends: Its all eyes on shoulders on red carpetTagsHou Hsiao-Hsien Nie Yinniang Cannes filmPhotoPhotographer captures Great Wall at night175 grave robbers arrested in biggest-ever tomb raidMiao ethnic group celebrates folk festivalAncient village of Ming Dynasty on verge of disappearingPilgrimage fair festival held in Chinas SichuanDrunken Dragon Festival held to celebrate Buddhas birthday in MacaoArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelExhibition highlights 300 cultural items in BeijingZhao Wangyuns works on display in BeijingPhotographer captures Great Wall at nightWang Huangsheng unveils first UK solo exhibitionPainting event held to greet upcoming Intl Childrens Day in BeijingVan Gogh to brighten up Beijing from AugustRenovated Sichuan Art Museum opens to publicXinjiangs people and culture inspire Lin Feng to paintVeteran ink painter still learning at 80Chinaware produced for wedding of Emperor Tongzhi of Qing DynastyExperience China: China brings cultural feast to BerlinPhotographer captures Chinese on the trainJia Zhangkes movie screened at CannesPhotocall for film The Shameless at CannesMaking moves in the online movie marketJurassic is backJurassic World coming to China prior to US debutA modern dilemmaCannes president praises development of movie industry in ChinaComplete list of winners of 68th Cannes Film Festival main competitionNovelist Cang Yue: It will be Chinese Lord of the RingsHou Hsiao-Hsien: I wish I could have jumped back to Tang Dynasty17 Chinese films with a Cannes AwardHou Hsiao-Hsien wins Best Director award at CannesJackie Chan is dean of his own film academyActress Ni Nis new fashion shotsGao Yuanyuan releases travel photosSinger suspends Weibo updates to end cyber bullyingBon Jovi Awarded Honorary DegreeRocker Wang Feng to sue for defamationEntertainment weekly photos: May 16 – 22Paris Hilton flouts no selfie rule at CannesGao Yuanyuan graces Hapers BazaarGeorge Harrisons guitar sells for $485,000Li Bingbing says Chinas where the moneys atHe Jiongs resignation sparks outpouring on WeiboZhang Ziyi celebrates 30th year of Tommy HilfigerTrends: Its all eyes on shoulders on red carpetFashion updatePrada gets a makeoverStudents from China, Italy hold joint fashion showCannes steps into trouble with high-heels dress codeHighlights of China Graduate Fashion WeekCartier and Chinese body to jointly promote artFashion updateGong Li helps Swiss luxury with Chinese marketHangzhou International Fashion WeekSummer easeKorea in a cooking potWatermelon toast gains popularity in TaiwanTop 10 catering brands in ChinaThe eel dealBelgian chef celebrates natural wondersHealthy, bite by biteCulinary specialists reveal the magic hidden away in iceRed bowls chic hotpotNever mind the atmosphere: its all about the priceEat BeatFinding inspiration in artCoffee, tea and dreamsTop 10 most beautiful terraces in ChinaMountain paradiseGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism Destinations Editors Picks17 Chinese films with a Cannes AwardHou Hsiao-Hsien wins Best Director at CannesHot wordsPalace MuseumEasy TalkChinese Valentines DayGaokaoStart of AutumnCulture InsiderTop 10sTeaDragon Boat FestivalChinese at CannesVideoEasy Talk Special: Chinese dream in a bottleEasy Talk: Taboos in gift givingEasy Talk: Trendy catch-alls in business school applicationsColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-Ray
