The 59th Annual Berlin International Film Festival was described by some media as something not that outstanding. According to pessimistic predictions, the Festival wouldn’t be a success and there would hardly be all the tickets sold.
But the Festival proved it was still one of the most prestigious movie festivals ever with all the tickets sold out and critics praising work of actors and directors.
