What do you think and what would you say about "Brokeback Mountain"? Well, as for the movie director Ang Lee, he tends to describe his movie as a "great American love story" that is "unique and so universal." "I'm so glad it's prevailed here and was received so warmly here," so he said as his movie won the Venice Film Festival's Top Award Saturday.
