Sergey Dvortsevoy's Tulpan won the Un Certain Regard category at the Cannes Film Festival tonight, with Tokyo Sonata taking the Jury Prize. Well, darn ... it figures that one of the few films we didn't manage to catch at the fest ended up winning the category.

The film is a Kahzakstanian tale of a young man who must marry before he can become a shepherd, but the only prospect he has is Tulpan, the daughter of another shepherding family, who doesn't like him because his ears are too big.
