"Touch Me Not" wins top Berlinale honour, two Silver Bears for "The Heiresses"

25 February 2018

"Touch Me Not" won the Golden Bear prize for best film at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival. The film is about intimacy and sex that shocked some viewers with explicit scenes. It blurs reality and fiction as it follows characters who seek intimacy yet also fear it. The festival runs from Feb. 15 to Feb. 25. Around 400 films are being screened at the festival. Of those, 19 were competing for the top Golden Bear prize.
