Love was the big winner at Cannes in 2012 (Amour took home the Palme D'or last year), and it struck gold again this year, with French drama Blue is the Warmest Colour scooping the festival's most prestigious prize.

The film, which is based on a French graphic novel, caused a lot of controversy at the festival, with it's more intimate scenes being described as "the most explosively graphic lesbian sex in recent memory". And one of the aforementioned scenes is 10 minutes long... If that doesn't grab attention we don't know what will.

The Coen Brothers took the Grand Jury Prize (2nd place) with Inside Llewyn Davis (which has been tipped to win before Blue hit the big screen), while Hirokazu Kore-eda's Like Father, Like Son won the Jury Prize, the Cannes equivalent of coming third.

Acting gongs went to Berenice Bejo (who you might recognise from The Artist) who was named Best Actress for Asghar Farhadi's The Past, while Bruce Dern beat Michael Douglas to win Best Actor for his role in Alexander Payne's Nebraska. Heli director Amat Escalante was named Best Director, while Jiz Zhangke took the honours for best Screenplay with A Touch of Sin, and Moon Byoung-Gon's Safe got the nod for Best Short.

Finally, the Camera d'Or (the award for the best first feature film of the fesival) went to Anthony Chen, for Ilo Ilo, making him the first South-east Asian winner in the award's 36-year history.

Until next year film fans.
