Double Steps: Top Winner of 2011 San Sebastian Film Fest

Isaki Lacuesta’s “The Double Steps” won the Golden Shell on Saturday at the 59th San Sebastian Film Festival, the first under new director Jose Luis Rebordinos.

A Mali-set, genre-blending movie — part road movie, part Western, part portrait of Spanish painter Miquel Barcelo — “Double Steps” divided critics but also attracted fervent admirers.

San Sebastian’s other big winner was Greek Filippos Tsitos’ comedic drama “Unfair World,” about an idealistic cop, which won both director and actor (Antonis Kafetzopoulos).
