Michael Haneke picks up French award for "Hidden"

The French critics awards, the Etoiles de la presse (press stars), were announced on January 24 in Paris. Michael Haneke picked up the best Screenplay Award for "Caché/Hidden". The most noted winner was definitely "De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté/The Beat That my Heart Skipped", with 5 awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Romain Duris), Best Soundtrack and Best Producer (Pascal Caucheteux).

"Hidden/Caché" was one of the strong contenders for last year's Palme d'Or at Cannes, and was subsequently a winner in the European Film Awards.
