Four Eagles for '33 Scenes From Life'

Malgorzata Szumowska's tale earns best film nod

BERLIN -- Malgorzata Szumowska's "33 Scenes From Life" has won four Eagle Awards, Poland's top film honors, including the Eagle for best film.

"33 Scenes" also won the 2009 Audience Award along with nods for best editing (Jacek Dros) and soundtrack (composer Pawel Mykietyn).

Szumowska's film stars Julia Jentsch as a successful photographer whose marriage to a famous composer begins to fall apart.

But in the numbers game, "33 Scenes" took a back seat to "Little Moscow," a look at the Soviet army's occupation of Poland, which won five Eagles including best screenplay for Waldemar Krzystek.

Jerzy Skolimowski won the best director Eagle for "Four Nights With Anna," his comeback to filmmaking after an absence of almost 20 years.
