The FICC jury of the 19th Tromso International Film Festival gives the Don Quijote award to the French-Canadian movie C'est pas moi, je le jure! (It’s Not Me I Swear) directed by Philippe Falardeau. This brilliantly set story tells about loneliness and loss in a difficult childhood in the late sixties from a ten year old child’s perspective. The extraordinary acting performances and black humor contribute to the great qualities of this movie. By the exquisite set-decoration and the hyper realistic colors the director creates a unique atmosphere. Philippe Falardeau allows us a very insightful and tender look into the confusing world of ten year old Léon.

The jury: Hilde Gaard, Norway (Tromsø Children’s Film Club); Corinne Siegrist-Obourrier, Switzerland (Filmpodium Zürich); György Kárpáti, Hungary (Hungarian Federation of Film Societies).
