    Will RUSSIAN ARK be released in commercial theaters in the U.S.? If so, by whom and when?

    I saw last year's awards. It was the worst awards show I have ever seen.

    Thi, now I HAVE to try and catch it! Nothing like clumsy and pathetic European award shows! [​IMG]
    Cool list of films though.

    The ceremony is today, but I looked through the Bravo channel's website, and didn't have any luck. Does anyone know when the show will be broadcast in Canada?

    Caught the awards show last night on Sundance, and I now have to disagree with Thi - this year's was worst than last year's show. [​IMG] Sloppy gags, a very loooooong, untranslated speech (like 10-15 minutes) from the recipient of the lifetime achievement award, Tonino Guerra (a well deserved award, but a prepared speech instead of his rambling discourse would have been better received), and odd, remote location guest appearances for no conceivable reason (many were neither presenting nor receiving awards, just popping in to say "hi") [​IMG]
    Pedro Almodóvar won Best Director for Habla con ella, Sergio Castellitto won Best Actor for Marco Bellocchio's My Mother's Smile, and the entire ensemble cast of 8 Femmes won Best Actress. For the most part, it was Almodóvar's night, with Roman Polanski and Aki Kaurismäki shut out.
    By the way, Divine Intervention won the Best Non-European Film competition.

    Yeah, that was quite a contradictory award. Singling out an ensemble? [​IMG]
    Actually, the whole awards show seemed quite unfocused and organic (and not in a good way). I got the impression that most of the audience hadn't seen many of the films being nominated (most obvious in the dead silence for Russian Ark, The Man Without a Past, Divine Intervention). I don't remember Abbas Kiarostami's Ten getting nominated, nor any Asian films for the non-European film competition. Korea alone had at least three excellent films that would have deserved nomination.
    I forgot to add, Pawel Edelman won Best Cinematography for The Pianist and Best Documentary Feature went to Nicolas Philibert's To Be and To Have.
