Kim Ki Duk’s “Pieta” wins Golden Lion at Venice 2012

9 September 2012 10:08 PM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

South Korean director Kim Ki-duk’s ‘Pieta’ won the Golden Lion for best film at the Venice Film Festival. Earlier in 2004 Duk had won the same award for his ’3-Iron’.

Venice: The Golden Lion to "Pieta"

8 September 2012 1:33 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Venice film festival has wrapped and with it come those winged lions and other elaborately shaped awards. The jury led by director Michael Mann named Kim Ki Duk's Pieta the best film in competition. It's a violent mother/son drama, the son being a loan shark. Kim Ki-Duk, best known stateside for spring, summer, fall, winter and spring (2003) is no stranger to the Venice Festival having won multiple prizes for 3-Iron (2004) eight years ago.

The winners...

Golden Lion (Picture) Pieta 

Silver Lion (Director) & Special Jury Prize (Director) there seems to be some confusion about this as Ulrich Seidl for Paradise: Faith and Paul Thomas Anderson for The Master alternate who won what in various reports

Best Actress Hadass Yaron for Fill the Void

Best Actor (Shared) Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman for The Master

Screenplay Olivier Assasyas for Apres Mai (English Title: Something in the Air)
