Top Tiantan Award for Mexican film Beginning of Time at Beijing
A haunting story of a couple in their nineties which has to make a living by selling food on the street after being abandoned by the son and losing its pension, Beginning of Time richly deserved the honour.
The four-part tale, Children, from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, about suffering teens as well as about a young woman forced to help her sick father commit suicide, clinched three trophies: cinematography, screenplay and best supporting actress for Eva Bandor.Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem, a Chinese-French co-production, describing life in Mongolia after the Cultural Revolution, walked away with the Tiantan Prize for Best Visual Effects.
A poster of Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem won the top honour for its visual effects.
The top acting honours - for best actor and actress - went to Artem Tsypin for A White White Night, and to Yuliya Peresild for The Battle For Sevastopol.
The lone Indian entry in Competition, Prakash Babu's Fig Fruit and the Wasps, went home empty handed.
