    [b]The Palme d'Or of this 57th edition of the Festival de Cannes was presented by Charlize Theron to Michael Moore for his film, Fahrenheit 9/11.[/b]


    [i]"I can't begin to express my appreciation and my gratitude to the jury, the Festival, to Gilles Jacob, Thierry Frémaux, Bob and Harvey at Miramax, to all of the crew who worked on the film. [...] I have a sneaking suspicion that what you have done here and the response from everyone at the festival, you will assure that the American people will see this film. I can't thank you enough for that. You've put a huge light on this and many people want the truth and many want to put it in the closet, just walk away. There was a great Republican president who once said, if you just give the people the truth, the republicans, the Americans will be saved. [...] I dedicate this Palme d'Or to my daughter, to the children of Americans and to Iraq and to all those in the world who suffer from our actions. "[/i]

    As you can clearly understand, after the distribution problems michael moore encountered the cannes award comes to make sure that the film will be distributed/played in the US just before the elections...

    there are a probably alot of disgruntled directors of some great films who view this as i do....the french telling the bush admin to kindly fuck off...its too bad...


    i mean i like moore, but it seems rather contrived that given the current state of foreign affairs that he wins...


    frank rich in yesterdays new york times wrote a good opinion piece on the movie if any one is interested...


    i am looking forward to seeing it....

    You're wrong on this one, it aint the French, its a jury of directors with chief for 04' Quentin Tarantino...yeah, the worlds most important intellectuall people tell the Bush admin to fuck off, fuck yeah.

    As far as this being contrived, it could be. Art is meant to play a pollitical/social role and i'm really glad that by handing an award at a euro festival, a film that the Bush admin tried to bury is now the center of attention internationally and will be used against them.

    Makes sense from Goddard's viewpoint..its like a quarrel between a painter and a graphic designer that does nike ads...
