aottal

Malayalam film “Ottaal” (trnsl: The trap), directed by Jayaraj Rajasekharan won the crystal bear award at the Berlin Film Festival that took place on Saturday. A 11 member youth jury gave the awards to the children’s category. The movie is adapted from Anton Chekhov’s story Vanka. The jury said in a statement “This exceptional movie touched us all with its irresistible images of nature, laid-back music and amazingly gifted actors. The unique way of filming certain details blew us away. We think it’s important that such a sad and serious topic be tackled in a movie, though the film also managed to capture the humour and joy of life.
