Palme d'Or: "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" by Ken Loach

Emmanuelle Béart handed the the Palme d'Or to The Wind That Shakes the Barley by Ken Loach.

During the Award Ceremony, Ken Loach declared in French: "It's extraordinary, thank you very much! I've forgot all my French words now. It is a great honour for us to be here, because Cannes is the most wonderful cinema celebration in the world, it is the centre of cinema in the world, and the heart of cinema." Then, in English, he added: "We hope that our film represents a small step in the relationship which the British have with their imperialist past. If we dare to tell the truth about the past, perhaps we shall dare tell the truth about the present." Then, once more in French, he concluded: "Thank you to the Jury, thank you to Cannes, thank you to Thierry Frémaux and Gilles Jacob. It's a beautiful award. Thank you to my friends! We made this film together, this Prize isn't for me but for you all."

Added comments during the press conference following the ceremony:
“I feel stunned. We genuinely were not expecting this, but I'm really delighted for all the people who made the film... That this story has been recognized the way it has is extraordinary.”
