Coppola's Translation Wins At France's Film Awards

LOST IN TRANSLATION has picked up the Best Foreign feature at this year's (05) prestigious CESAR awards - the French equivalent to the OSCARS.

The SOFIA COPPOLA-directed romantic drama about two American strangers staying in the same hotel in Tokyo, Japan picked up the award yesterday (26FEB05) due to its' late cinematic release in France - making it a contender despite its 2003 American screening.

The low-budget L'ESQUIVE (THE DODGE) beat French epic UN LONG DIMANCHE DE FIANCAILLES (A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT) to earn the top prizes of Best Director and Best Actress for Tunisian-born ABDELLATIF KECHICHE and 18-year-old star SARA FORESTIER, respectively.

L'Esquive follows a group of alienated youth in the impoverished suburbs in Paris getting ready to perform a school play by the 18th-century dramatist, MARIVAUX.

Kechiche made the movie because "he wanted to show people we don't normally see at the cinema".

World War One drama Un Long Dimanche De Fiancailles, featuring AUDREY TAUTOU, won five Cesar awards - including Best Costumes and Best Supporting Actress for MARION COTILLARD.
