FIPRESCI 90 Platinum Award: Jean-Jacques Annaud
Jean-Jacques Annaud. At the Bari International Film Festival (Italy, March 21-28, 2015), FIPRESCI celebrated its 90th anniversary with a series of masterclasses and award ceremonies dedicated to Alan Parker, Costa-Gavras, Ettore Scola, Andrzej Wajda, Edgar Reitz, Margarethe von Trotta and Nanni Moretti.
And to Jean-Jacques Annaud.
Motivation. “The Award for FIPRESCI 90th Anniversary goes to a visionary and daring artist, who, throughout his career, fully explored the endless potentiality of cinematography, granting us deep emotions and surprising us with innovative and touching movies:
His cinema embodies the strength, humanity and beauty of nature with films such as “Quest For Fire”, “The Bear”, “Two Brothers” and “Wolf Totem”.
At the same time, he deeply explored the human soul, with titles such as “Enemy at the Gates”, “Seven Years in Tibet” and “Black Gold”, also transposing on the big screen some of the most unforgettable masterpieces of literature such as “The Name of the Rose” and “The Lover”.
FIPRESCI assigns the Platinum Award to Jean Jacques Annaud, a European author of major foresight, style and artistic sensibility.”
