Toronto critics salute ‘No Country’

Coen film wins best film, director, screenplay

Joel and Ethan Coen’s “No Country for Old Men” dominated the Toronto Film Critics Assn. Awards, picking up four prizes, including one for best film Tuesday.

The Coen brothers’ crime thriller also nabbed awards for director and screenplay, and thesp Javier Bardem took the honors for supporting actor for his turn as a serial killer.

Viggo Mortensen won the actor prize for his role as a Russian mob driver in “Eastern Promises.”

The actress category had a distinctly Canadian flavor, with the award going to both British thesp Julie Christie for her role as a woman with Alzheimer’s in Canuck helmer Sarah Polley’s “Away From Her” and to Halifax thesp Ellen Page for her starring role in fellow Canuck Jason Reitman’s “Juno.”

“Away From Her” won three awards in total, also garnering the nod for best Canadian film and first feature.

The supporting actress award went to Cate Blanchett for Todd Haynes’ Quebec-lensed “I’m Not There.”

Helmer Brad Bird’s “Ratatouille” won for animated feature, Cristian Mungiu’s Romanian Cannes prize-winner “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days” for foreign-language film, and Charles Ferguson’s Iraq-themed “No End in Sight” for documentary.
