The Palme d’or has been awarded to Dheepan, by Jacques Audiard.
After receiving the prize, presented by the actress Cécile de France and the two Presidents of the Feature Films Jury, Joel and Ethan Coen, the laureate said:
"I am very moved. I knew it would have an effect on me. I'd like to thank Michael Haneke for not filming this year. I'd also like to thank my actors, without whom there would be no film, nor a Palme d'or. Receiving a prize from the Coen brothers is just incredible! Alexandre Dumas' son spoke about his father as "this child I had so young". Tonight, I'm thinking of my father".
