Palmdoor Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Palme d'Or (French pronunciation: [palm(ə) dɔʁ]; English: Golden Palm) is the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival. It was introduced in 1955 by the festival's organizing committee. Previously, from 1939 to 1954, the highest prize at the festival was the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film.
Palmdoor created controversy when Martin Scorsese was awarded for the film 'Taxi Driver', and in another occasion, the audience booed Maurice Pialat after winning the award, according to a post published by Nikki Baughan at screendaily.com
"Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver won the Palme d’Or in 1976; despite the fact that audiences (and the jury) were divided about its level of violence. Maurice Pialat’s Under the Sun of Satan was booed by audiences in the Palais in 1987 after winning the Palme D’or, at which point the director raised his fist and said: “I will not be untrue to my reputation."
