Un Certain Regard regards Aussie winner

Although Kornel Mundruczo’s White God took the main prize, David Gulpilil took the acting gong for his part in Rolf de Heer’s Charlie’s Country. 19 features played in Un Certain Regard, although Ryan Gosling’s Lost River was so universally hated by critics one wonders whether selectors actually bothered to watch it or just stopped at “directed by”. It was called among other things “studenty” which was probably an insult to the previous day’s Cinefondation winners.
