And with that, the Italian film "Kiss Me Again" has officially become the biggest winner at the 13th Shanghai International Film Festival. It won three major categories, including Best Feature Film, Best Screenplay for Gabriele Muccino, and Best Actress for Vittoria Puccini.
Muccino and Puccini could not be in Shanghai, so Sabrina Impacciatore, who plays the character of Livia in the film, accepted the awards.
"When the movie came out in Italy, the press had the prejudice and wrote that this movie was bad and they thought that it was only a commercial operation. And we were really disappointed and sad, because they didn't understand our good intensions and our passion. So, Italian cinema is alive and this is our revenge!"
The other big winner of the night was the Chinese film Deep in the Clouds. It won the Jury Grand Prix, as well as Best Director for Liu Jie, and Best Music for Giong Lim.
The best actor award went to Christian Ulmen in Wedding Fever in Campobello, and the best cinematography award went to Christopher Doyle for his work in Ondine.
Some of the most talked about competition films at this year's festival, such as "Ocean Heaven", "The Last Escape" and "Pay Back", did not win any awards.
