Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, has divided the critics but was crowned with the Palme d’Or (Golden Palm).

To the disappointment of many festival-goers (some boos were heard in the press room), the Palme d’Or was awarded to the movie “The Tree of Life,” the fifth film by Terrence Malick. As usual, the director was away and it was his producer who came on stage to pick up the prize.

Among actors, French actor Jean Dujardin won Best Actor for his amazing performance in The Artist by Serge Havanavicius.

Kirsten Dunst has not suffered from the controversy caused by Lars von Trier: she won the award for Best Actress for her role as troubled married woman in Melancholia, competing against Tilda Swinton.

Best Screenplay was awarded to the Israeli Footnote, centered on the clash between a father and son.

Best director was Nicolas Winding Refn, for Drive, starring Ryan Gosling.

The Grand Prix was awarded to Turkish film “Once upon in Anatolia” by Nuri Bilge Ceylan and “The boy on the bike” from Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne.

For this year’s edition, the official jury was chaired by Robert De Niro and he was joined by the actors Uma Thurman and Jude Law, directors Olivier Assayas, from France, Mahamat Saleh Haroun, from Chad, and Johnny To, from Hong Kong, Argentinian actress and producer Martina Gusman, Chinese producer Nansun Shi and Norwegian Linn Ullmann, writer and film critic.

The 64th edition of the Cannes Film Festival was hosted by French actress Melanie Laurent.
