62nd Berlin International Film Festival Award Winners


Ceremony is over and the awards are given to all winners. Everyone is surprised with the top winner and twitter is not saying good things but from the few scenes I have seen I find the Taviani's Cesare deve morire quite hypnotic and definitively looking forward to watch it.

Tend to agree with Miguel Gomes as his film looks and feel quite traditional and "old fashion" but hope to discover soon why the jury awarded him the innovation award.

So this is it until next year, now we have to watch the movies that were screened in the festival.

More awards have been announced and in about 5 hours the award ceremony will be streamed live with main awards.
