'Dancer' Tops Cannes Film Fest
The Danish film "Dancer in the Dark" won the Palme d'Or, the top prize at the 53rd annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. The jury, headed by French director Luc Besson, chose the musical tragedy from director Lars von Trier, which also garnered an award for first-time actress Icelandic singer Bjork (who also wrote music for the film's soundtrack). The best actor award went to Tony Leung from Hong Kong's "In the Mood for Love." The only American winners were screenwriters John C. Richards and James Flamberg for "Nurse Betty," a dark comedy that stars Renee Zellweger.
