Belgian filmmakers take top prize at Cannes
The 58th Festival de Cannes struck a mighty blow for socially conscious yet highly dramatic cinema Saturday when it awarded the Palme d'Or to Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's quietly devastating "The Child." It was the second Palme for the Belgian filmmaking brothers, who won the top prize here in 1999 for "Rosetta."
