A Prophet honoured at Cesars

Yesterday evening, Jacques Audiard’s A Prophet surpassed the triumph of his film The Beat That My Heart Skipped at the Cesars 2006 by winning not eight but nine trophies, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, as well as three Cesars in the acting categories (two for Tahar Rahim, one for Niels Arestrup).

The other favourites had to make do with lesser prizes: Xavier Giannoli’s In the Beginning (11 nominations) picked up Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Emmanuelle Devos) and Radu Mihaileanu’s The Concert (six nominations) was honoured in the Best Original Score and Best Sound categories.

In the few categories not topped by Audiard’s film, actress Isabelle Adjani nabbed the Best Actress statuette for Skirt Day, and Riad Sattouf received the Best Debut Film Cesar for The French Kissers. Meanwhile, Coco Before Chanel picked up just one award (Best Costume Design).

Finally, an Honorary Cesar was awarded to US actor Harrison Ford and homage was paid to Eric Rohmer.
