film. called your correspondence gus roxboro is here to tell me more about the awards costs the prizes have been given a telly by the winner yeah the square it's great i mean this was my picks was going to put some money on it because i would have came out in one basically everything best director best actor for clay spawning the danish star of the film best screenplay it's a satire set in the the fine art world in sweden and the lead character class. he is the curator of the museum and the film also has some some bigger names dominic west who people know from the wire the british actor and a list of mos american actress have small roles in the film it is a satire about the art world but it really is also got some very serious subjects it talks about it's basically about how to live an ethical life in a rich well to do country in which most countries in europe are so it's very
12:10 am
serious but it's also very very funny i mean i was surprised a bit that one really swept the awards this year because often the european film awards like to give prizes to more serious movies this is really laugh out loud funny and i really think it will scott now pretty good chance to maybe go on and maybe go to l.a. maybe maybe do some do some work at the oscars in a couple of months excellence or this square but what about some of the other highlights yeah i mean the europeans awards are always really political and this year was no exception and for me the most impressive moment was that there's a german director who's also president of the european film academy he gave a really passionate. beach against nationalism which as you know is rising across europe and he decried nationalism scolding the old sickness of europe and he called the people in the crowd which are all filmmakers to stand up against that and said what you're what we need is more europe and more diversity and that's definitely what was on display tonight because unlike maybe some of the other film awards out
