Mannheim, Germany -- The Argentinean drama "Rain," from first-time director Paula Hernandez, won the top prize at the 57th annual Mannheim-Heidelberg film festival, which wrapped Sunday.

The international jury called the melanchoy romance set in a drenched Buenos Aires a "masterpiece of directing," praising its virtuosity and the surprising twists of its plot.

French director Stephanie Duvivier's cop thriller "A Police Romance," about passion and drug busts in the French suburbs, won Mannheim's Rainer Werner Fassbinder Prize.

Another big winner was Lyne Charlebois' "Borderline," a portrait of a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown, which won both the Fipresci international film critics' prize and the Ecumenical film prize. »
