Joy Division film wins at Cannes

May 29th, 2007 by Crossfire

The Ian Curtis biopic has won a host of prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, including Best European Film.

Control, about the Joy Division singer who committed suicide at the peak of the band’s powers in 1980, was shown outside the main Palme d’Or competition but was a winner in the Director’s Fortnight section.

The Europa Cinemas said of the film: “This is a very impressive and assured debut from a renowned photographer, but he never allows the look of the film, beautiful though it is, to detract from the powerful story and character development.”
