CANNES — "Anna," a woman's drama directed by young Israeli editor-director Or Sinai, a student at Israel's Sam Spiegel Film & TV School, took the First Prize Friday at the Cinefondation Selection…
Unattractively shot, structurally unsound and featuring a script that careens all over the place, "Anna" is an overstuffed drama bound to sink without a trace.
Following his superlative turn as a betrayed secret agent in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," Mark Strong was long overdue for a lead role.
