film profile], by directors Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis (read the review and the interview). Following the Cannes Caméra d'Or and the Ensemble Acting Prize that it won in the Un Certain Regard awards on the Croisette, the feature debut by the young French trio has also taken home the Audience Award at the 12th Paris Cinéma Festival (read the news). Interestingly, this was the only prize given out this year by the event, which had a full house but has a relatively uncertain future owing to its ever-shrinking budget.
