Movie  Dheepan by Jacques Audiard

Dheepan directed by Jacques Audiard was the winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Audiard is considered by many critics to be one of the best French directors currently making films. Dheepan was a controversial choice for the top prize at Cannes. Whether or not it is ‘classic’ Audiard, as thousands of refugees stream across Europe’s borders, it’s a timely reminder of the conditions faced by many who successfully make the transition to a new country.




I have worked as a journalist for 24 years both in London, England and now in Paris, France. I was a broadcast journalist for the English service of Radio France Internationale in Paris for 17 years before leaving to set up a blog for French cinema fans everywhere. I also worked as a reviewer of French films for The Hollywood Reporter and was a jury member for the Prix Michel d'Ornano at the Festival of American Films at Deauville. I am passionate about French films, both old and new, and want to share this passion with filmgoers around the globe.
