Oh sob. South African story “Life, Above All” may have had a 10-minute ovation when it was first screened in Cannes, but it hasn’t won the top prize in its section. Instead, a film called “Ha Ha Ha” – by South Korean director Hong Sang-soo – took that honour at the ceremony tonight.
Both films were competing in the sidebar competition Un Certain Regard. “Ha Ha Ha” is about a drunken trip down memory lane as a film-maker prepares to emigrate from Korea to Canada.
The best acting prize went to the three actresses in Argentinian film “Los Labios”. The actresses portray three women who travel to a remote town to undertake welfare work amongst the poor locals.
Well, our top vote still goes to “Life, Above All” and ITS three wonderful actresses: Khomotso Manyaka, Harriet Manamela and Lerato Mvelase!
