    Cannes has recognized the worth of Terrence Mallick for the second time. It had honored him with the Best Director award decades ago for his “Days of Heaven.” Now it has given the reclusive director the highest honor for “The Tree of Life.” The Berlin Festival did the same for his “The Thin Red Line,” a decade ago. All this honor to an American director who has not been given a single Oscar over the years and rarely even nominated (he was once nominated for “The Thin Red Line”) ! Prophets are never recognized in their own village!

    I am personally delighted to see that the latest works of Nuri Bilge Ceylan (best Director award) and Andrei Zvyagintsev (Un certain regard jury prize) are also award worthy. I am eagerly waiting to see these three award winning films.

    I have read some articles relating to Terrence Mallick, but being frank i never had an opportunity to watch his works. On contrary, Andrei Zvyagintsev is a very well known russian director whose works include The Return(2003). I read an article about his new film in Cineurope.com and i’m eager to watch it.
