  1. ^ Guardian "A similar tragedy marred the Cannes triumph of the Turkish film Distant, which won the Grand Jury prize. Its leading man, Mehmet Emin Toprak, who had just been married, died in a car crash on the day director Nuri Bilge Ceylan's film was accepted for the main competition. He had planned to spend his honeymoon at Cannes. Toprak was posthumously named best actor."
