"Broker" has won the top prize at the 39th annual Munich International Film Festival.

The event's website on July 2 announced that the movie claimed the ARRI Award, which is given to one of the 10 finalists in the CineMasters Competition.


The festival's jury said, "This film is a journey. One filled with longings, with decisions, with detours. Sometimes it is precisely these detours that we must take in life to find ourselves and each other. And we found a bit of ourselves in this film."

"'Thank you for being born.' — A single sentence that touches the audience in such a way that entire films rarely can," it added. "When every character, no matter how small or large, is intricately layered, simultaneously fractured and in the end so lovingly developed, that's cinema. Great cinema."

Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, "Broker" depicts the unexpected and special journey of the characters as they form a relationship after finding an abandoned infant in a baby box. Song Kang-ho in May became the first Korean to win Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival for his role in the film, which also features cast members Gang Dong-won and Bae Doona.

Having run from June 23 to July 2 this year, the festival is the second biggest of its kind in Germany after the Berlin International Film Festival.
