Roman Polanski's political thriller The Ghost Writer has won the prize for best film at the European Film Awards.

Polanski's movie was also the winner in five other key European Film Academy categories, including best director and best actor for Ewan McGregor. Sylvie Testud from France won best actress in Lourdes.

At a ceremony in the Estonian capital, the academy also bestowed a lifetime honour on Swiss actor Bruno Ganz.

Composer and musician Gabriel Yared was awarded for writing scores to such films as The English Patient and The Talented Mr Ripley.

The academy has granted the European film prizes since 1988 to celebrate the continent's film industry as a counterweight to the Oscars.

Team up with someone who has experience with managing large organisations. You're good at handling the small details, but should rely on someone else to keep the big picture in sight.More
