Madrid -- Javier Fesser's mystical "Camino" walked away as the big winner Sunday at the 23rd Goya Awards, taking home nods for best film, director, actress, new actress, supporting actor and original screenplay.

"Camino," which tells the true story of a young girl's death, her mother's staunch Catholic beliefs and the Church's effort to canonize the girl, saw young Nerea Camacho win the new actress award and Carme Elias, who played her mother, take the lead actress honor.

" 'Camino' is a love story and vindication of the right to be happy. In these times, it's important to hope," said producer Jaume Roures, head of Mediapro, which also produced Woody Allen's Spanish film "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

Penelope Cruz seemed to sum up the international vibe of the evening when she picked up her Goya for supporting actress in "Barcelona," the same role that earned her an Oscar nomination. »
