See Winners

BUENOS AIRES — “Valentin,” a coming-of-age tale set in the 1960s, dominated the Argentine Assn. of Film Journalists awards, held Tuesday in Buenos Aires.

Alejandro Agresti-helmed pic took seven Condors de Plata, including film, director and original screenplay (Agresti). Rodrigo Noya, the boy hero of the pic, nabbed the surprise actor category.

Luis Cesar D’Angiolillo’s “Potestad,” a drama about a 60-year-old recalling the loss of his young daughter, drew the actor nod for Eduardo “Tato” Pavlovsky and adapted screenplay.

Marina Glezer picked up actress honors for Juan Carlos Desanzo’s “El Polaquito,” about a street kid who gets by singing tangos. It also won for cinematography.

Daniel Burak’s “Bar el chino” nabbed freshman film kudos, while Sergio Wolf and Lorena Munoz’s “Yo no se que me han hecho tus ojos” (I Don’t Know What Your Eyes Did to Me) scooped the feature docu prize. Top honors for feature video went to “Oscar Aleman, vida con swing,” directed by Hernan Gaffet.

Eduardo Mignogna’s “Cleopatra,” starring vet actress Norma Aleandro, went away empty handed despite six nominations and a strong box office run, as did Nestor Montalbano’s kidnapping satire “Soy tu aventura” with five noms.
