It was a highly unique César ceremony which unfolded on Friday night in Paris. Rewarding the best of French film, in a year which lost several months of activity to the health crisis and its subsequent closure of French cinemas (whose curtains have been drawn, again, since 30 October) - a fact which many of those receiving or presenting awards didn’t hesitate to denounce, blasting the government with a tide of verbal cannonballs over its current handling of national culture - the event was nonetheless allowed to unspool in person (with reduced capacity and amidst strict safety protocols).

 scooped seven trophies, including the titles of Best Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (the latter being written by the filmmaker himself). It’s a sweeping victory for a work which sits at the crossroads between arthouse and mainstream cinema, but it also reflects the potential of films whose releases were cut short as a result of health-related cinema closures, just as ticket sales were booming and, in this instance, after just nine days in cinemas in October last year, which nonetheless got the film off to a flying start in the form of 720,000 admissions (Gaumont will re-release the film as soon as cinemas re-open - a date which is still up in the air, although, for what it’s worth, there are whispers of the second half of April…). And to top off the very particular nature of this year’s César Awards, the grand champion Albert Dupontel wasn’t there to receive his trophy - not for fear of infection, but because of his long-standing refusal to take part in prize-giving ceremonies (in his opinion, art cannot be measured or compared).

The other winners, for their part, made no secret of their happiness, especially Laure Calamy and Sami Bouajila who were both named best actors for the very first time, thanks to My Donkey, My Lover and I [+leggi anche:
