Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award 2008: Charlotte Rampling (photo: Sara Shahbazi)

"For her impressive portrayals of some of the most memorable female characters in modern cinema. Some might be strong-willed, others more vulnerable, but they have all been depicted with intelligence and a precise feeling for their lives within. Few actors enter the big empty screen and inhabit it with the same grace, naturalness and confidence."

Wong Kar Wai

"Mr Wong Kar Wai is a visionary director that has moved audiences in every corner of the world with his cinematic language. He has a unique abilty to cast the creatures of the night in a romantic and moody light while capturing the beauty of the fleeting moment on the silver screen . It is an honor to present Mr Wong Kar Wai with the Stockholm Visionary Award for his continuous exploration of the labyrinth of the human heart in a search with no boundaries in time, space or form."
