The jury awards the film for its universal dimensions using the father-son relationship as a metaphor for that of the individual faced with political and social authorities. The quest for individual rights and liberty hurts a father, who is an image of institutions claiming to know what is good for each of us.  Access to full individual adulthood comes through the sacrifice of the father in substituting himself as a victim. The jury especially appreciated the use of music and humour.
