Congratulations.

A well-deserved award. I urge everyone to watch his films - they are all excellent, and thought-provoking, and will stay with you for a long time.

Congrats to Koreda, well deserving.

Special kudos to the nominating committee for not being influenced by the cold relation between Japan and South Korea.

Busan, great city and wonderful people indeed.

What ever the japanese want to say abt the Koreans, this is a good sign that Koreans are fair people where talents are concerned.

Did both of you actually watch shoplifters? I want to think the decision of awarding Kore-eda was taken based strictly on "art". But under current problems between both countries, more than one Korean with anti Japanese feelings will be extremely happy with the decision!

Great cast. Hope it plays in the hinterlands...

Didn't like the concept of Shoplifters. Makes crime sympathetic.

Well done and well deserved. And good on Busan, too for becoming a predominant film festival location. I remember when it was just starting up and trying to catch up to Montreal.
