South Korean action thriller The Man From Nowhere (아저씨, pictured) yesterday took the Grand Prize at the third running of the Beaune International Thriller Film Festival (Festival International du film policier de Beaune, 30 March to 3 April 2011) in central France. The critics' prize went to Australia's Animal Kingdom.

Both films have French distributors, TF1 for Man From Nowhere and ARP Selection for Animal Kingdom.

They beat Bullhead (Rundskop) by Belgium's Michael R Roskam and The Silence (Il Etait Une Fois Un Meurtre) by Germany's Baran Bo Odar, which shared the second place jury prize.
