From Reuters,

"Bella," a romantic drama by Mexican director Alejandro Monteverde, was the surprise winner of the top award at the Toronto Film Festival on Saturday, while the contentious "Death of a President" took home a critics' prize.

A story of two people whose lives converge and turn upside down on a single day in New York, "Bella" received no buzz and little ink during the 10-day event, but still managed to win the festival's People's Choice Award, voted on by moviegoers.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
