Rainer Werner Fassbinder-Preis:
”The Rainer-Werner-Fassbinder Prize goes to ”MISS KICKI” by Håkon Liu from Sweden, as it shows us in an exemplary manner, how an actress shapes a film. In ever surprising ways it shows us that cinema does not need many words to express the unsaid and inexpressible in human relationships.”
