Another big event happened with film-maker Emir Kusturica, who received the Palme D’or twice he was invested with the insignia of Chevalier of the Order of the Légion d’honneur. Frédéric Mitterrand, the French Minister of Culture and Communication said: "The work of Emir Kusturica can be consumed without moderation. It crisscrosses, in an express train of course, the heart of a Europe marked by wounds, laughter and pride."
And also director Peter Chan came to present his new work "Wu Xia": "The Wu Xia is a Chinese martial arts film genre that we have known for a long time, for 30 or 40 years; I grew up with it and it is a genre that is constantly renewing itself. With this film, we wanted to keep this tradition going."
