Eran Riklis’s The Human Resources Manager was a big winner at the Ophir Awards Tuesday night, which were announced in a ceremony held at the Jerusalem Theater.

The movie won Best Picture and Riklis won Best Director.

Rosina Kambus won Best Supporting Actress and Noah Stollman won for Best Screenplay (which was based on an A. B. Yehoshua novel).

The film, which will now go on to be Israel’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, also won the award for Best Soundtrack. The film tells the story of a Jerusalem factory manager who goes to Russia to bury a foreign worker killed in a terrorist attack.

The two top acting prizes for best actor and best actress went to Adir Miller and Maya Dagan for Avi Nesher’s The Matchmaker (formerly called Once I Was).
