Kazuyoshi Kumakiri's film is the first Japanese grand prix winner at the Moscow International Film Festival in 15 years.

TOKYO — Kazuyoshi Kumakiri's My Man (Watashi no Otoko) won the best film award at the Moscow International Film Festival on Saturday, with Tadanobu Asano (Thor, 47 Ronin) taking best actor for his role as a man who becomes romantically involved with his adopted daughter.

FILM REVIEW  'My Man (Watashi no otoko)'

My Man is based on a novel by Kazuki Sakuraba and stars Fumi Nikaido (Himizu) as the daughter who lost her family in a tsunami that hit Japan's northern island of Hokkaido in 1993.

It is the first victory in Moscow for a Japanese film since Kaneto Shindo's Will to Live in 1999.
