Swedish director Roy Andersson won the Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion Saturday for his absurdist drama "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence".The festival's other avian contender, the widely praised Michael Keaton comeback movie "Birdman," went home empty-handed, but still looks set to be an awards-season contender.Despite scenes of death and everyday cruelty, Andersson's very funny film was one of the gentler entries in a festival whose films often dealt with suffering, struggle and strife.Pacino, Emma Stone, Owen Wilson, Uma Thurman, James Franco and Charlotte Gainsbourg were among the stars who walked the red carpet outside the Palazzo del Cinema.Festival director Alberto Barbera said that he got "95 percent" of the films he wanted this year – but he lost out on a couple of big ones, including David Fincher's "Gone Girl," which will premiere at the New York Film Festival.
