Cannes. Tulpan.

"Sergey Dvortsevoy's Tulpan won the Prize of Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival tonight in France, while Kurosawa Kiyoshi's Tokyo Sonata won the jury prize," reports indieWIRE's Eugene Hernandez, who lists winners of further UCR awards.


"Shy courtship, stark landscapes and a spirited supporting cast of livestock make Tulpan a vivid, intensely enjoyable debut feature from former documentarian Sergei Dvortsevoi," writes Jonathan Romney in Screen Daily. "The Kazakhstan-set film hardly breaks new ground, in both setting and mood pitching its tent very close to The Story of the Weeping Camel. But it similarly blends intimate, gentle fiction with a strong dose of ethnographic observation, to immensely charming effect."
