1:11 am
remaining a film called touch touch me no touch you know it's a very unusual film i would if it was by the females or actor. congeal in scuse me who is a first time director as was her first ever feature film and she won the golden bear for it she was also want to only four women in the competition section of the ballet now they know this film so well the jury present has something interesting to say about their decision on the yeah he did he said the jury themselves are pretty split on whether to to award this film that the golden bat he said there that he wanted a film that shows not what film can do but it's what it can do in the future and when you look at this the when it doesn't make sense as a comment because it's very experimental it's very unusual sort of mix fact and fiction you never really know whether what you're seeing is real sometimes you see the cameras in the shot sometimes you see the director self so it's an unusual pick
1:12 am
i'd say for that that it mixes documentary and drama and the thing about this film is that we really have to do is it starts with a close up of the male to the paling up and then it goes from there it's a film about human sexuality and intimacy and it's very explicit sometimes there are some rather pornographic scenes those all a lot of pink parts all over the screen all the time but yeah very experimental film and we can see after hearing the jury president's comment you can see why they went in that direction. ok you can see how they were in that direction what about female lead best female lead was that a surprise not quite that was the best female lead was on a broom for the film to start and lost her down to us which is a very contained emotionally reserved film but ultimately very very affecting i thought she was fantastic yeah that really did a really good job in this book and she's the one that we've been talking. since we sold me that was one of the ones to show it was an unforgettable performance it's
1:13 am
a very very complex picture of what it is to be a woman and a gay woman is in power and why i think that she really is that what when it is right. now these awards can do a lot for a younger person's career what about the male lead. yes that's right the male lead is a younger person is and he is a newcomer here at the bat i know that and in films like this is why he plays a drug addict who goes to france to try and get clean and through religion and friendship recoated rediscovers himself and cleans up the act it was a stunning performance i do you have to say that there's one scene in particular that's really striking where he's recovering from the heroin addiction as it with jurors saying it's unforgettable that's the french film the prayer and he really for a young person really threw himself into this very difficult roles are a well earned award. ok i have a feeling that the next name is not going to come as
1:14 am
