    @Probie--Kitano has made a ton of darkly humorous movies that are regularly awarded at the top film festivals in Europe. Did the new movie not live up to your expectations based on his great work of the past?

    @Kimo That tricky punctuation in the middle of the headline is called a semicolon. It's used in this case to separate two examples of winners at the same festival. The clause on the left is about a Chinese film; the one on the right is about a Japanese one.
