Jury statement: "The award goes to a film that makes us hold our breath and instead become part of the film's own pulse. With furious pacing, constant motion, a consistently subjective point- of-view and with long, meticulous and masterly executed sequences, the director takes a whole new perspective on a subject that has been depicted countless times, but never with this intensity - and never this good."
