“to use an expressive language free, and indirect, as poetry, preferred to a linear narrative,”
and, to the jury, the winner of the best film “for the important moral issues that the film raises about the
“sense of responsibility” of the individual, and of the artist, to the community, for the poetic, poignant hope that is launched, so that the human race can rise and aspire to a new life, made of empathy and awareness, for teaching us that no sacrifice is never in vain, and that every end brings with it the seeds of a new beginning.”
