Jewish Comedy Takes most German Film Prizes

"Alles auf Zucker" (Go for Zucker: An Unorthodox Comedy), the first Jewish comedy made in Germany since World War II, won "Lola" awards for best film, best director and best actor, as well as top honors for screenwriting, costume and music.

The film, which cost just 1.5 million euros has been a surprise box office hit, beat the blockbuster "Der Untergang" (Downfall), about Hitler's final days, which went home empty-handed.

"I just beat Hitler!...It's just great that a little Communist guy of Jewish origin beats Hitler" joked Henry Huebchen when receiving the best actor award ahead of Bruno Ganz, who was nominated for his role as the Nazi dictator.

"Alles auf Zucker" was nominated in 10 of 16 categories at the awards ceremony, broadcast on national television, while "Downfall" got only three nominations. The awards, sponsored by the German government, are worth a total 2.85 million euros ($3.6 million).

Best actress went to Julia Jentsch for "Sophie Scholl." The only other film with more than one prize was "Rhythm is it!," featuring Sir Simon Rattle, director of the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra. It won the best documentary and best editing prizes.
