The Palm Springs film festival, she is concluded, and we have our winners:
Best Foreign Language Film
Pan’s Labyrinth, directed by Guillermo del Toro
Mads Mikkelsen, “After the Wedding”
Blanca Lewin, “In Bed”
You can find more specific coverage, including my expanded review of “Pan’s Labyrinth”, as it goes up at the FIPRESCI site. Now, however, it is time to crawl into bed and get as much sleep as we can before the obscenely early wake-up call, and then it’s off to Toronto with the customary bagful of American candy.
(It turns out they still sell mint chocolate M&Ms at Christmas … just not in Canada. But now they’re really cheap!)
I am such a six-year-old sometimes. But a six-year-old who gives prizes.
