09:26, December 15, 2011

VIENNA, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Austrian director Reinhold Bilgeri was awarded on Wednesday a Chinese film award - the Golden Rooster Award here in Vienna for his movie "A Breath of Heaven."

The movie tells a love story of 41-year-old woman looking for a fresh start of her life with a local music teacher in a town frequently hit by avalanche.

In an interview with Xinhua, Bilgeri said "A Breath of Heaven" was a story about true love, which happened not only in Austria but also in China.

He said he hoped the movie would be liked by more Chinese audiences.

For his part, Chinese Ambassador to Austria Shi Mingde said the movie would help Chinese people understand the Austrian film arts and promote cultural exchanges between China and Austria.

"A Breath of Heaven" and the Cuban film "Havana Suite" were jointly awarded "the Most Popular Films" in the foreign language film category at this year's Golden Rooster Awards.
