Haru Kuroki wins best actress award at Berlin film festival


Japanese actress Haru Kuroki won the Silver Bear for best actress at the 64th Berlin International Festival on Saturday for her part in director Yoji Yamada’s “The Little House.” “I never thought I’d be able to appear on this stage,” Kuroki said at the award ceremony. “I owe director Yamada, who made the great movie.” The film, based on the namesake novel by Kyoko Nakajima, depicts a furtive love affair of the wife in a bourgeoisie family set in Tokyo in the 1940s. Kuroki plays Take, the housemaid loyal to the wife. [Source]
