EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS 2006: CRITICS’ AWARD
 
The European Film Academy and the International Federation of Film Critics FIPRESCI
have announced that the

 
EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY CRITICS’ AWARD 2006 – Prix FIPRESCI
 
goes to
 
LES AMANTS REGULIERS
by Philippe Garrel
 
As Andrei Plakhov, president of FIPRESCI, has explained, ”Philippe Garrel made his first film when he was 16, and by 20 had earned the reputation of the Nouvelle Vague’s Wunderkind and younger brother of Godard’. His sophisticated cinematographic style, with long concentrated frames, is unique. His films are like fake detective stories, where mystery lies, not in the plot but in the style.”
 
The award will be presented during the Awards Ceremony in Warsaw on December 2.
