Berlinale 2009

I'll keep posting some awards and festivals  butnot many as they are countless but I'll do it when feeling in festival's mood.
This time I'll post about Berlin Film Festival.  The awards were annouced yesterday night. There is a list of great films to have a look.  This year's most important award (The Golden Bear) was awarded to a Latin American film and director!! Well done!
