The Berlin International Film Festival has come to a close, and Adina Pintilie’s "Touch Me Not" has emerged with the film world’s nicest looking award: the Golden Bear for Best Film. Wes Anderson was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director by the six-person jury, which was led by Tom Tykwer and seems to have been as wowed by “Isle of Dogs” as critics have been.
“Touch Me Not” also won the prize for Best First Feature, marking an auspicious debut for Pintilie; “The Heiress” is also a double winner, having been awarded both the Alfred Bauer Prize and Best Actress laurels for Ana Brun.
