To check all the winners go here. I have been “dying” to see Séraphine and according to what I have been reading plus the trailers I know that I will enjoy it a lot; still I’m sorry that Kristin Scott Thomas didn’t won the award, but I know that Yolande Moreau performance is extraordinary. So glad that Vincent Cassel won as well as Mesrine’s director, Cassel performance is truly remarkable and unforgettable and the movie is high quality entertainment.
A la prochaine!
