The film about a Croatian schoolteacher who, attracted by the idea of tripling his wages, becomes a truckdriver who criss-crosses Europe, edged out 17 other contenders for the Golden Marcus Aurelius prize for best film.
The jury headed by U.S. director James Gray awarded the prize for best director to Japan’s Kiyoshi Kurosawa for “Seventh Code,” an industrial espionage action flick.
A special jury prize went to “Quod Erat Demonstrandum” by Romanian director Andrei Gruzsniczk, in which a mathematician draws the wrath of state police by getting an article published in a U.S. magazine without the permission of the authorities.
American Matthew McConaughey won best actor for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club” by Jean-Marc Vallee, while his compatriot Scarlett Johansson was awarded best actress for her performance in “Her” by Spike Jonze.
