Winners at Venice, Ang Lee takes Best Film

AngLee.jpgThe winners are out of Venice, and there aren't many surprises.

Brian De Palma has won Best Director for Redacted, his Iraq war film.

Cate Blanchett has taken the Best Actress for I'm Not There, the film about Bob Dylan in various stages of his life and career played by other famous actors.

Brad Pitt has won the Best Actor for the long titled The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

Bernardo Bertolucci was awarded the special award for his career work from such films as Last Tango in Paris and The Last Emporer.

However the biggest award was for Ang Lee's Lust, Caution which won the Golden Lion award for Best Film.

The news comes from Associated Press through Yahoo News. There's nothing that surprising, although you could be slightly surprised at Brian De Palma and Brad Pitt taking honours here.
