'The Milk of Sorrow', 'La Teta Asustada' a Peruvian drama about a young woman with a mysterious illness, won the Golden Bear award for the best movie at the Berlin Film Festival last night.
Directed by Claudia Llosa, the film stars Magaly Solier as Fausta, who suffers from a disease she believes is transmitted through the breast milk of women who were raped in the Shining Path's war of terror in Peru. Her life starts to change direction after her mother dies and she goes to live in Lima.
The Bears are bestowed again: 1,600 invited guests and millions of TV viewers watched the awards ceremony in the Berlinale Palast. Also, many of the celebrity guests who had attended the festival over the last ten days didn't miss the chance to participate in the festive closing event of this year's Berlinale. A night of suspense culminated in the announcement of the main prize, the Golden Bear, going to La teta asustada. Jury president Tilda Swinton and festival director Dieter Kosslick handed the trophee to Claudia Llosa, Magaly Solier, José María Morales and Antonio Chavarrias, the director, the leading actress and the producers of the winning film.

A golden rectangle
is a rectangle whose side lengths are in the golden ratio,
one-to-phi, that is, approximately 1:1.618. A distinctive
feature of this shape is that when a square section is
removed, the remainder is another golden rectangle, that is,
with the same proportions as the first. Square removal can
be repeated infinitely, which leads to an approximation of
the golden or Fibonacci spiral.
