The Child," a Belgian film directed by Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, won the Palme d'Or as best film at the 58th Cannes Film Festival.

The film follows a young thief as he struggles with the moral dilemmas of fatherhood.

The jury gave its Grand Prix, the festival's second-highest award, to Jim Jarmusch for "Broken Flowers," a comically poignant portrait of a middle-aged Lothario (Bill Murray) searching for a son he did not know he had.

The Jury Prize, a kind of honorable mention, was given to "Shanghai Dreams," Wang Xiaoshuai's tale of proletarian unhappiness in provincial China in the early 1980s. The prize for best male performance went to Tommy Lee Jones for "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," which he also directed. The jury selected Hanna Laslo as the festival's best actress for her role in Israeli director Amos Gitai's "Free Zone."
