"The President's Last Bang" on Monday won the Lino Brocka Award for best picture at the Cinemanila International Film Festival in the Philippines.

Director Im Sang-soo's film is a dark comedy based on the 1979 assassination of South Korean president Park Chung-hee by his own intelligence chief.

The event's organizers also gave the director of the Pusan International Film Festival, Kim Dong-ho, with a lifetime achievement award.

The Grand Jury Prize went to the Moroccan film "In Casablanca, Angels Don't Fly" by Mohammed Asli.

The biggest film festival in the Philippines, the event will end its two-week run Tuesday.
