Don Quichote Award to the film ,directed by Léo Marchand and Anne-Laure Daffis (France).
In the spirit of Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”, Anne-Laure Daffis and Léo Marchand ‘s poetic western is a metaphor for man’s struggle to find a meaning in the meaningless. The two protagonists of opposite personalities long for paradise – in this case Mexico- hoping to find a better life. But until then, they have to find a reason for their existence, not realising that everything will start again from the beginning. Great actors and well composed cinemascope images tell us this minimalistic though surprising poem, which is a mirror of our own existence and its meaning.
Special Mention goes to Anne Zohra Berrached for the film SAINT & WHORE (Germany).
