Cannes 2010 Awards: OF GODS AND MEN Wins Ecumenical Prize

Of Gods and Men Xavier Beauvois

The Ecumenical Jury at the 2010 edition of the Cannes Film Festival – as to be expected – awarded its top prize to Xavier Beauvois' Des hommes et des Dieux / Of Gods and Men (above).

Starring Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale, Of Gods and Men recounts the events that led to the horrific massacre of a group of Trappist monks in civil war-torn Algeria in the mid-'90s.

Ecumenical Special Mentions went to Mike Leigh's Another Year, starring Jim BroadBent and Ruth Sheen as an aging couple, and Lee Chang-dong's Poetry, in which an older woman starts to see life differently after she begins taking a poetry class.
