Early Prizes at Venice

The "Arca Cinema Giovani" announced three awards that will be presented tomorrow at the Golden Lion ceremony:

Prize for the movie that has best treated the theme "Passagi d'Occidente: encounters, diversities, contrasts": Fernando Meirelles's The Constant Gardener, "for having chosen such a difficult and up-to-date subject; for the intense elaborated artistic direction." (France/Germany, 2005)

Prize for Best Italian Film: Cristina Comencini's Don't Tell, "for having harmonized the stories of every character and managing to soften the dramatic aspects of the plot with elements of irony". (Italy, 2005)

Prize for New Trends: Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, "for having treated successfully the delicate subject of vengeance with class in a sophisticated and epic way. This is the form that the modern Korean cinema imposes as the new cinematographic trend for the future." (Korea, 2005)

In the Venice Days industry section the best film went to Xavier Beauvois' Le Petit Lieutenant. (France, 2005)

Hayao Miyazaki received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement in a special ceremony at the Sala Grande this afternoon. In a completely packed theater, the animation master was cheered and applauded and then took his seat for the screening of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
