Hungarian film "It's Not The Time Of My Life" won the top prize at the Czech Republic's Karlovy Vary Film Festival on Saturday, the organisers said.

The Crystal Globe award winner directed by Szabolcs Hajdu ("White Palms", "Bibliotheque Pascal") is a study of two families forced to share a flat.

American actor Willem Dafoe, the star of "Platoon", "Shadow of the Vampire" or "The Last Temptation of Christ", received the Crystal Globe at the festival earlier on for his contribution to world cinematography.

French actor Jean Reno ("Leon", "Nikita", "Ronin") and American screenwriter, director and producer Charlie Kaufman, who won an Oscar for the script for the 2004 film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", received the Festival President's Award.

More than 135,000 cinemagoers attended the 51st edition of the festival in the western spa city running from July 1 to July 9.
