BEST SCREENPLAY NARRATIVE WINNER: THE KIDNAPPING OF MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ
The Best Screenplay Award goes to Guillaume Nicloux for The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq:
If novelist Michel Houellebecq had indeed been kidnapped during his 2011 promotional book tour, this may have been the definitive documentary on the case. As a wild alternative, Guillaume Nicloux's work of complete fiction starring Houellebecq himself playfully speculates on the reason for the mysterious disappearance. This highly entertaining, farcical piece of cinema parallels the wry characteristics of its unique and ever-unconventional subject.
