The European Film Awards is a great demonstration--unlike Cannes, for example--of how English has indeed become the international language. Wim Wenders' gave a moving tribute to life achievement award winner Catherine Deneuve, who keeps us wanting to get closer to discover the secret mystery in her eyes. "That is the secret," he said. "I'm still here doing films," said Deneuve to a standing ovation. 

Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar accepted the award for European Achievement in World Cinema.  

Romanian producer Ada Solomon ("Child's Pose") took home a special award celebrating a co-producer in a country experiencing a New Wave. "It always seems impossible until it's done," she quotes Nelson Mandela. "This is the award of all the co-producers and co-producing initiatives where I grew up and met my partners and the award with the people I have been sharing dreams who were convinced by my dreams and made them happen."
