Report - Venice 2003, The Winners

by Federico Greco
Katja Riemann won the Volpi Cup as Best Actress in Margarethe von Trotta's Rosenstrasse [+see also:
film profile], presented during the 60th Venice Film Festival.
The actress, answering a question, explains and underlines that a film directed by a female director is not necessarily characterized by a female point of view.
The Special Jury Award went instead to the German Michael Shorr for his Schultze Gets De Blues [+see also:
film profile]. A story in between drama and comedy, defined by the director "a mixture between melancholy on one side, and humour and irony on the other".
