Prix Delluc bids ‘Adieu’

'Voyages' wins best first pic

PARIS — Georgia-born French helmer Otar Iosseliani’s “Adieu, plancher des vaches” (Farewell, Home Sweet Home) won Gaul’s most prestigious cinema prize, the Prix Louis Delluc, Wednesday in a ceremony at the recently restored upscale film canteen Fouquet’s on the Champs-Elysees.

Iosseliani’s whimsical look at a rich young man who perversely aspires to poverty preemed in the Official Selection, out of competition, at Cannes. “Adieu” earlier won the European Critics award on Dec. 4 at the European Film Awards in Berlin. The film was first shown in the U.S. at Telluride in September.

First for First

For the first time since the prize was founded in 1937, the award committee — a select group of critics who serve for life — took the novel step of initiating a best first film award, which went to Emmanuel Finkiel’s “Voyages” (Tracks), a bittersweet triptych of contemporary stories about elderly Holocaust survivors adrift in the present.

Prize is named for critic-turned-filmmaker Delluc (1890-1924) whose writings are considered to have laid the groundwork for the appreciation of film as an art form.
