Was a true pleasure to be able to watch the Lumières awards ceremony live as film clips are always very enjoyable and Isabelle Huppert homage was fantastic with so many clips from films that I have seen and yes, could think of a few films that had no clip, after all we have to recall that she has an extensive filmography, just in IMDb there are 126 films listed for her acting career and we all know that data base could have omissions. Just in case, I should say that Huppert is one of my favorite actors in the world, so yes have seen almost everything with her.
Since the nominations imagined that a film by a female director in a French-Turkish co production could swept the awards and gee, I was correct! Mustang collected 4 awards out of the 6 nominations and most interesting was honored with the Best Film and Best First Films awards! Congratulations and yes, the honors are extremely well-deserved as Deniz Gamze Ergüven first feature film looks and feels like the work of a more experienced director and her non-actors female cast had mesmerizing performances. Bravo!!! Hope film does as good as here in the Cesar.
