Thai movie "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" has won the best movie award at the Cannes Movie Festival Uncle Boonmee, directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, traces the dreamlike final days of a man dying of kidney failure as the ghost of his dead wife returns to tend him and his long-lost son comes home in the form of a furry jungle spirit. Asian movies are slowly taking big awards all over the world. A year ago at the Oscars, Slumdog Millionaire from India took home many awards too. South Korea film "Poetry" also got an award for Screenplay, the winner was director Lee Chang-dong.

Cannes movie awards throughout the years have been known as a place where American and European movies showcase their latest films and take home the awards but the times are changing, this year, they had many Asians present and even Bollywood stars like Aishwarya Rai were present and Asians got many awards, signs of things to come? I truly believe so.
