The film, by director Samuel Maoz, is shot almost entirely1 inside an Israeli tank against the backdrop(背景,背景幕) of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon.

The award for best director went to Iranian-born Shirin Neshat for the film Women Without Men.

Britain's Colin Firth won Best Actor prize for A Single Man, in which he plays a mourning professor.

The BBC's David Willey in Italy says this year's winners all sent strong political or social messages.

Lebanon has been described by the leading US entertainment magazine Variety as "the boldest and best" of recent films from Israel about the country's wars in Lebanon.

The high-profile Italian film Baaria, a Sicilian-based family epic2, failed to win any prizes.

The jury3 of the 66th Venice Film Festival was headed by Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee, who won the Golden Lion in 2005 for Brokeback Mountain.
