The International Federation of Film Critics FIPRESCI has named director Kim Ki-duk's movie "3-Iron" the year's best film.

Three hundred federation members worldwide cast their votes for films released between August last year and July this year.

3-Iron also earned last year the best director award at the Venice Film Festival and best film award at the Valldolid Film Festival in Spain.

The movie is about an eccentric and quiet young man who sneaks into homes to clean or repair them. One day, he enters a mansion to find an abused wife whom he resolves to mend with the same care.

The federation will present the award on September 15th at the opening gala of the 53rd San Sebastian Festival that Kim is expected to attend.

The director will visit Denmark, Greece, Italy, Kazakhstan and Turkey from September 19th to October 2nd to promote the distribution of his films in Europe. Several European nations will also run a retrospective of his films next month.
