8:12 pm
said that it's very experimental very unusual it mixes facts and fiction it blurs and you never really know whether what you're seeing is talking mentary or drama they have actors they have real people but the thing you really need to know about . this film is it starts with a close up of the male genitalia and then goes from there there's a lot of nudity a lot of explicit sex not really in a pornographic way but the whole movie is about sex it's a very intimate look at human sexuality and human intimacy. now my earlier you just mentioned the need to movement this is the first one alice in family began who took best female lead. so the best female lead went to the powder going actress and broom in the film had a dad asked the era says from paraguay she was really this is a very slow sort of contained film but she was really stunning and i am happy with the squad this was something that we would talk about this film quite
8:13 pm
a lot when we watched it for a while afterwards it was it was very moving performance and says she painted a very complex picture of what it's like to be a woman in paraguayan it will say she very carefully handled the economic situation as well it was it is the film that had a lot to offer and she really did a really great job i think so we're pleased with our ways without him and i guess pleased with who won the male lead. while the male lead went to and he's a french actor he was in the film the prat he's a newcomer he's a very young guy say i think it's really nice to see someone like that get an award at the net and that because it really is just going to propel his career it now obviously that was a very standout moments from. a heroin addict and he goes to a remote friend's house to recover and that's a really spectacular scene as the way things through withdraw from the hard way
8:14 pm
that is very memorable i think he did a really good job difficult role and really threw himself into it especially for a young guy and we can't let you guys go without finding out about best director. best director was wes anderson of dogs a very first film of the. festival open did a very different film from the rest of what we saw in the competition as animation at stop motion very innovative in terms of the way it used for its actors really the little dogs that they created of course very wes anderson eon it style in the its color scheme and all of that and of course a fantastic cast of actors voicing to the dogs bill murray was hades because it was anderson's it was so weird super excited to have him on the right comedy again yeah it's a really really sad because i was super excited about this film being the bat and i'm out there wes anderson fans i know that a lot of people are in as
8:15 pm
