Cannes 2019, in the Un certain ragard section triumphs Chiara Mastroianni

In Cannes the Brazilian "The invisible life of Eurydice Gusmao" by Karim Aïnouz won the Un Certain Regard competition by surprise. But there is also glory for Italy, with the ovation received by Chiara Mastroianni, awarded as best interpreter for "Camera 211" by Christophe Honorè. "It is the first time that I am rewarded - she said moved - and I really didn't expect it. We knew we had won something, but I thought it was for my director".

"I am just an instrument in his hands, it arrived unexpectedly in my life and you don't even think for a moment to get out of it now - he continued -. Tonight the real winners are Cristophe and my magnificent colleagues without whom my character would not have existed" .

The films in competition were 18, 9 the first works and 8 prizes awarded by a cheerful and compliant jury led by the director of "Capernaum", Nadine Labaki. Jury prize to Oliver Saxe for the Spanish "o que arde"; special prizes for Albert Serra's "Libertà", for Bruno Dumont's "Giovanna", for the young Russian Kantemir Balagov, the Canadian Monia Chokri and the American Michael Covino.

The final dedication of the winner is politically political: "My prize goes to the magnificent team of Brazilian films that is here in Cannes. We experience a difficult moment of intolerance and violence. We say that we are not this, we are a people with other values ".
