Valladolid wraps with ‘Sweet’ note

Spain’s Valladolid fest, Seminci, wrapped its 42nd incarnation Saturday, having consolidated its reputation as Spain’s “fest of fests.” The six-person jury gave its Golden Spike award to Atom Egoyan’s cool study of guilt, “The Sweet Hereafter,” six years after Canadian Egoyan took the same trophy with “The Liquidator.”

Nick Nolte’s perf in Paul Schrader’s “Affliction” won best actor and completed the tally for the non-European side of the Atlantic. Best actress went to Pernilla August for Liv Ullman’s “Private Confessions.”

The Silver Spike was shared by Spaniard Manuel Gutierrez Aragon’s “Things I Left Behind in Havana” and Mike Leigh’s “Career Girls.” The Pilar Miro award for best new director was presented to German Wolfgang Becker for “Life Is All You Get.”

Spanish helmer and jury member Montxo Armendariz ended the week by having his “Secrets of the Heart” nominated as Spanish entry for best foreign-language film at the 70th Academy Awards.
