BERLIN (AP) — Chinese director Diao Yinan's "Black Coal, Thin Ice" has won the Berlin International Film Festival's main Golden Bear prize.

The movie also won the best actor award Saturday for Liao Fan's role as a former policeman turned detective investigating a mysterious series of killings.

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won the jury grand prize, which comes with a runner-up Silver Bear.

American filmmaker Richard Linklater won the best director honor for "Boyhood," made over 12 years, which follows a boy and his family from first grade to college.

Haru Karoki was named best actress for her part in "The Little House," from veteran director Yoji Yamada, a film about a covert love affair in Japan set against the backdrop of World War II.
