"Amour" by Austrian director Michael Haneke won the best foreign language film prize at the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday, to go with its many other prizes.

The French-language film, which tells the story of an aging couple coping with the wife's ailing health, beat fellow nominees "Kon-Tiki" from Norway, "No" from Chile, "A Royal Affair" from Denmark, and "War Witch" from Canada.

"Thank you very much. What an honor," Haneke told the audience, also praising his stars -- best actress nominee Emmanuelle Riva and veteran French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant.
