Oscar Contenders 'Amour' and 'Barbara' Win German Arthouse Honors


Michael Haneke's Palme d'Or winner takes best international film while Christian Petzold's Berlin festival favorite wins in the best German film category.

COLOGNE, Germany - Michael Haneke's Oscar contender Amour has added another honor to its growing trophy case, winning the best international film prize of the German guild of art house film exhibitors. Haneke won the same prize two years ago for The White Ribbon (2010), which went on to receive an Oscar nomination.

Amour looks at the love between two elderly people that is tested when one is debilitated by a stroke. The French-language drama is Austria's official entry for the 2013 Best Foreign Language Oscar race.

Barbara, the East German period drama from Christian Petzold, which will represent Germany in the Oscar's Foreign Language category, won the German art house award for best German film.

The prizes were handed out at the 12th annual art house cinema trade fair in Leipzig, which wraps up today.
