    CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

    L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.

    Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.

    For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.

    The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.

    The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.

    Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.

    It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.

    Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

    The non-professional actors of La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), a film about three young Guatemalans trying to cross the Mexico-U.S. border from director Diego Quemada-Diez won an award for best cast.

    Years ago, when cinema first became popular, for a lot of people it was the only way for them to see movies, because most of them didn’t have their own televisions. The thing is though, cinema has always had a much better quality viewing experience than home televisions, so it has remained the ultimate way to experience a movie.

    The Invention of Video Tapes

    For a long time, the one problem with both cinema and TV is that you needed to watch a film at a specific time. With the invention of home video systems such as VHS and Betamax, movie fans were able to either record films from the TV or rent films from a video library. However, there was still the problem of quality, as cinema was still a far superior experience than watching a video at home.

    The Rise of DVDs

    Part of the quality issue was dramatically improved with the invention of the DVD. DVD meant that anyone could watch very high quality digital video at home. Unlike VHS tapes for example, DVDs didnt wear out or degrade over time, as long as you didnt get the discs scratched. From the 1990’s onwards, DVDs became extremely popular amongst movie fans. The only problem was, unless you had an extremely large TV screen and a very expensive sound system, you still wouldn’t get the same experience as the cinema.

    The Experience of Home Cinema

    Nowadays, the true home cinema experience is becoming much more of a reality for many people, as they buy large widescreen TVs and high quality speakers. For example, with a plasma TV screen of 50 inches or more, and being sat closer to the screen than you would be in a cinema, youre going to get a very cinematic feel. And you wont miss having someone sat behind you who wont stop talking through every scene.

    Reasons to Visit the Cinema

    However, even with home cinema quality jumping forwards in leaps and bounds, dont you think theres still something missing? Theres just something about actually going out to the cinema. It gives you a reason to spend time with your friends and experience something together. And lets face it: in all honesty, the experience at home really isnt quite as good as the full blown cinema experience, is it?

    Why You Should Still Stay at Home Instead

    The only problem with visiting the cinema is that it costs you more money than it does to just stay at home with a DVD. But also, when you’re at home, you can fit your movie watching around the other things you want to do. You can also eat your own food. Just relax and watch your favourite movie while eating your dinner.

    Initially, going to the movie halls was the only option people had to enjoy watching movies. But now, things are different. Home cinema systems have made watching movies at home just as much fun as going to movie halls. There are many companies who have launched their home theatre systems. This article provides a comparative analysis of Samsung and LG Home Cinema Systems.

    Sales revenue and features

    Sony is the most popular brand when it comes to consumer electronics like LCD TV or home theatres. However, its very highly priced. The features and quality of LG and Samsung Home Cinema Systems are comparable as they fall in almost the same price bracket. When you look at the sales revenue, Samsung is presently ahead of LG. Samsung also provides for better and more advanced features as compared to LG home theatre.

    Sound output

    When we talk of middle price segment(5.1 channel, 300 to 350), both Samsung and LG home cinema systems have their own positives and negatives .In comparison to Samsung, the sound output of LG is better in almost all models available in LG home theatre. The speaker types that can be used with Samsung home cinema system are multimedia and powered. You can also use an extra pair of rear speakers without having to use any cable. The speaker types in LG are also powered but are enabled with surround system.

    Other features (same price segment)

    MP3 and CD/DVD players are the player components that are common in both LG and Samsung home theatre systems. But there are other player components that are found in LG home cinema system. These are A/V receiver and radio tuner. Samsung home cinema systems can playback only DVD and DVD audio, whereas LG can also play CD, and DVD-R/RW along with DVD. Playback file formats in both Samsung and LG systems are DivX and MP3. Both the home cinema systems have theatre DSP soundfield.

    Conclusion

    Be it audio quality or other features, all differ from model to model. Some features are better in LG, while Samsung fares better in others. Therefore, it is hard to say which home cinema system is better. It is just a matter of your personal preferences and the money you are ready to shell out to buy your home cinema system. Both LG and Samsung offer good after sales services. Although Samsung truly boasts of a bigger market share, LG scores better because of better speakers and sound quality.

    Peter Simpson writes guides to computing gadgets and new technology. Ask Peter about watching films on an hd projector, hd tv or lcd tv and remember that you can always watch films on your ipod touch too.

    While it is ideal to have a spacious room for your home cinema, you can still enjoy the best home cinema from a smaller room in a quaint home. The trick is to use the features of your room to blend with the home cinema; the electronics should fit in comfortably with the rest of the settings.

    Here are some suggestions on how to enjoy the best home cinema in a room that does not look like a spacious lounge.

    The Dimensions Of The Room

    Do use a rectangular room, and don’t use a square room. The room should be longer than it is wider for a home cinema not to completely dominate the room.

    And just as you don’t want the room to be a square, you don’t want it to be a cube either, so ceiling height is also something to consider. The height of the room, from floor to ceiling, should not match the length of the room.

    Reduce or Eliminate Unpleasant Bouncing Sounds

    Do use a rug or carpet, and don’t use a bare floor, even if it is nicely laminated or has beautiful floorboards. This time the reason is not aesthetics, but functionality. Bare floors will bounce the sound, while rugs or carpets will absorb sound comfortably and you will not hear a strange humming sound as you watch a movie.

    Similarly, add thick curtains to the windows. Again for the same reason. You don’t want the windows to reverberate when watching your show. Thick curtains that block out the light will add another dimension to your viewing pleasure.

    Finally, if you can, change the door. By choosing a fire proof door, you will eliminate audio problems created by a vibrating door.

    Be Selective About Your Technological Choices

    While a 7.1 system is more impressive than a 5.1, and dynamic mode creates bright and compelling images, these choices in home cinema will have an overpowering effect on the total ambiance of the room. In other words, you are overdoing the electronic stimulation. Just as you want the physical home cinema to blend in with the size of the room, so, too, you want the cinematic effects to be pleasant, not jarring.

    Bigger Is Not Always Better

    Sound is important to pull you into the movie, but big speakers are not necessary at all. You can get the same sound effects with five small satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

    Don’t keep your TV more than 15 degrees from eye height; for example, if you have a flat screen, you should not put it on a mantle piece. Having the screen too high will eventually cause a crick in your neck.
