BERLIN: The Romanian director Radu Jude's 'Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn', a sexually explicit dark comedy of the everyday aggression experienced by a female teacher in contemporary Bucharest, won the Berlin Film Festival's Golden Bear award.

Judges hailed the film, starring Katia Pascariu as the teacher whose private sex tape is leaked, triggering a witch hunt by parents of the children at her school, as a "lasting artwork" that had an important message to convey about the Zeitgeist.
