‘Mystery’ nabs top prize at Moscow

'Planet' named best debut film, also gets director honors

MOSCOW — Spanish helmer Miguel Hermoso’s “The End of a Mystery” won film and audience honors at Moscow’s 25th Intl. Film Festival, which wrapped Sunday.

Director honors went to Korea’s Jang Jun-Hwan for “Save the Green Planet,” which was also judged best debut

Debut directors Boris Khlebnikov and Alexei Popogrebsky’s “Koktebel,” one of three Russian films in competition, took the Jury Special Prize, as well as awards from international and Russian critics.

Shinobu Ootake won actress for her role in Kaneto Shindo’s “The Owl”, and Iran’s Faramaz Garibyan took actor in “Dancing in the Dust,” which also won the Russian critics prize.

FIPRESCI and Russian film club juries both honored Denmark’s Soren Kragh-Jacobsen for his Glasgow-set, English language “Skagerrak.”

Fest guests Gina Lollobrigida, Steven Seagal, Fanny Ardant and fest topper Nikita Mikhalkov paid a closing-day visit to Russian president Vladimir Putin.
