And the Golden Bear of the Berlin Film Festival goes to ...

.. the German-Turkish production Bal (Honey), by Semih Kaplanoglu, seen here with Jury President Werner Herzog:

One surprise award during the ceremony went to Roman Polanski - who ridiculously enough is still under house arrest in Gstaad, Switzerland - who was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director for the French/ German/ UK co-production The Ghostwriter.
