Jasmila Zbanic's "Grbavica," a film examining how a single mother and her 12-year-old daughter cope with the aftermath of the Bosnian war, won the top prize at the Berlin film festival on Saturday.
The movie, a joint Austrian-Bosnian-German-Croatian production, beat out 18 rivals to secure the Golden Bear award for the best film at the closing ceremony for the festival in the German capital.
The eight-strong jury led by British actress Charlotte Rampling selected two runners-up: "Offside," a comedy that uses soccer mania to highlight the struggle for women's rights in Iran, and Danish-Swedish production "En Soap" ("A Soap").
The jury selected Britain's Michael Winterbottom as best director for "The Road to Guantanamo."
The best actor and actress awards both went to Germany: Moritz Bleibtreu for his role in "Elementarteilchen" ("The Elementary Particles"), based of the novel by Michel Houellebecq; and Sandra Hueller, who starred in "Requiem", reports AP.
