"Touch Me Not," a film about intimacy and sex that shocked some viewers with explicit scenes, won the Golden Bear prize for best film at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival Saturday. Romanian director Adina Pintilie said she had not expected to win the award for her film, which blurs reality and fiction as it follows characters who seek intimacy yet also fear it.The Silver Bear award for best director was given to U.S. director Wes Anderson for "Isle of Dogs" – an animated movie about a Japanese city that deports its dogs to a garbage dump island during an outbreak of canine flu.That film also won the Silver Bear Alfred Bauer prize for a feature that opens new perspectives.At the festival, which ran from Feb. 15-25, around 400 films were screened.
