BERLIN (AP) — Romanian director Calin Peter Netzer's movie "Child's Pose" has won the top Golden Bear award at the annual Berlin film festival.

A runner-up Silver Bear went to Danis Tanovic's "An Episode In the Life of an Iron Picker," in which a Bosnian Roma, or gypsy, couple re-enact their own struggle to get treatment after their baby died in the womb. Nazif Mujic, the husband, was voted best actor by the festival jury on Saturday.

Best actress was Paulina Garcia for her part in Chilean director Sebastian Lelio's "Gloria."

American filmmaker David Gordon Green was honored as best director for "Prince Avalanche," a movie about two road workers whiling their way through a long, monotonous summer.
