In Control 
In addition to winning the Europa Cinemas Label prize for best European film, Control also won a further two awards at the 60th Cannes Film Festival:

- CICAE Art & Essai prize for best film
- Regards Jeunes Prize for best first or second feature film

Apart from impressing the judges and juries, another important aspect of Cannes is for filmmakers to secure distribution for their wares. According to HollywoodReporter.com, Harvey Weinstein has picked up Control for North American distribution. A French release date proper of 26 September 2007 has already been announced but as yet no date is set for the UK.

In the meantime you can view the trailer on YouTube.
