Golden Lion to Sanxia Haoren (Still Life) by Jia Zhang-Ke

The Official Awards of the 63. Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica

The Venezia 63 Jury of the 63. Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica, chaired by Catherine Deneuve and comprised of José Juan Bigas Luna, Paulo Branco, Cameron Crowe, Chulpan Khamatova, Park Chan-wook and Michele Placido, having viewed all twenty-two films in competition, has decided as follows:

GOLDEN LION for Best Film:
Sanxia Haoren (Still Life) by Jia Zhang-Ke

Sanxia haoren was the surprise film in Competition at the 63rd Venice Film Festival. It was Jia Zhang-Ke return to competition at the Venice Film Festival for the third time in recent years, having participated in 2000 with Zhantai (Platform), and in 2004 with Shijie (The World).

Sanxia haoren (Still Life) was shot in the old village of Fengjie, which has since been upset by the building of the Three Gorges Dam. In Jia Zhang-Ke’s film, the old village of Fengjie has already been submerged, but a new district, set to spring up in the surrounding area, is still under construction. Some things are to be saved, whilst others are to be left behind. Han Sanming, a miner, comes to Fengjie in search of his former wife, who he has not seen for 16 years. They meet by the Yangzi river, and decide to remarry. Shen Hong, a nurse, comes to Fengjie to look for her husband, who has not been back home for two years. They embrace before the Three Gorges Dam. Although they do share a dance together, they sadly give up and decide to divorce.
