The Guilty
Directed by:

The jury awards the film for its capacity to provide impulses for its viewers to reflect on personal moral judgements in everyday life concerning oneself and the other. As part of it, the film also holds up the value of humility towards the other person. The jury also appreciated the way of using traditional genre tools as a means of expression in ethical discourse.
