"For me the film is a great love story that made all of feel like we were privileged to be flies on the wall, to be invited into this story of deep love and deep heartbreak. The director did not put any constraints on the narrative and we were absolutely spellbound by the amazing performances of the two actresses, and especially the way the director observed his characters and just let the characters breathe."In an unusual move, the jury decided to recognize actresses Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux along with the film. "Inside Llewyn Davis", "Nebraska" and "The Past" did not leave home empty handed, however. The Coen Brothers were awarded the Grand Prix and in the acting categories the winners were Bruce Dern ("Nebraska") and Berenice Bejo ("The Past"). Best director was awarded to Amat Escalante for the drug-related gang violence drama "Heli" and Best Screenplay went to Jia Zhangke for "A Touch of Sin".
