Israeli film wins Tokyo Film Festival prize
Israeli director Nir Bergman has picked up the top prize at the Tokyo Film Festival for the second time.
His film about a boy in the 60s who stops growing for three years was awarded the $50,000 (£31,100) Sakura Grand Prix, beating 14 other movies.
Intimate Grammar follows on from Bergman's previous Tokyo win in 2002, for his film Broken Wings.
Sarah's Key, a French film about a Jewish family living through World War II, won the audience award.
Its director, Gilles Paquet-Brenner, won the best direction prize.
Kaneto Shindo, a 98-year-old Japanese director, won the special jury prize for Post Card, about the impact of World War II on the residents of a rural Japanese community.
Shindo used the occasion to announce his retirement, telling the audience: "I heartily hope all of you will do well and create good movies."
Oscar-winning Irish director, Neil Jordan, headed up the festival's jury. The event closed on Sunday.
