Diao Yinan’s Black Coal, Thin Ice, a Chinese murder thriller, won the Berlinale’s Golden Bear this evening, and Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel (here’s my 2.6.14 review) won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize. Richard Linklater was handed the Silver Bear for best director for Boyhood (which I saw and reviewed at last month’s Sundance Film Festival). Alain ResnaisLife of Riley which took the Silver Bear/Alfred Bauer Prize for “feature film that opens New Perspectives.” (I’m sure Glenn Kenny levitated upon hearing this news.) Dietrich Brueggemann’s Stations of the Cross which won the Silver Bear for best screenplay.
