Chalk up another honour for Montreal filmmaker Denis Villeneuve's Maelström -- winner of the Fipresci Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, which wrapped up Sunday.
The film won for its "innovative dramatic structure, its playfulness, and its contemporary sensibility."
Maelström generated favourable buzz at the Montreal, Toronto and Sundance festivals and nabbed five Genie Awards last month, including one for best picture. It is also up for eight Jutra awards in Quebec this weekend. CP
