Tarantino's French Honour

American director QUENTIN TARANTINO has been made an OFFICER OF ARTS AND LETTERS by the French government.

The KILL BILL filmmaker - who is currently acting as the head of the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL jury - was presented with the honour by French Culture Minister RENAUD DONNEDIEU DE VABRES.

Tarantino, who was awarded the PALME D'OR in 1994 for PULP FICTION, says, "I'm actually for the first time speechless."

OSCAR-winning ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST director MILOS FORMAN was also made a KNIGHT OF THE LEGION OF HONOUR.

He was told by De Vabres, who dubbed him "a master of world cinema", that, "Your cinema crosses borders and is a model for generations of filmmakers."
