Aki Kaurismäki’s Cannes favorite Le Havre was awarded France’s prestigious Louis Delluc Prize for film of the year today in Paris. The crowd-pleaser beat out other Cannes vets like The Artist and France’s Oscar entry La Guerre Est Declarée for the nod. Demonstrating how the Delluc’s Gilles Jacob-led jury is shifting with the times, Djinn Carrénard’s Donoma won the prize for best first film. The guerilla-style picture is notorious for having been made on a purported budget of just 150 euros. The Dellucs can often be a harbinger of what’s to come at the Césars (France’s version of the Oscars), which will next be handed out on February 24 in a ceremony presided over by Guillaume Canet.
