PARIS, Oct. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korean director Kim Ki-duk has won the Grand Prix at the French Festival Du Film Politique for his film "The Net," the organizing committee said Sunday.

"The Net" depicts a hapless North Korean fisherman's struggle to return to his communist country after straying into South Korean waters due to engine failure.

In March, "The Net" won the best Asian film award at Oporto International Film Festival, one of the world's three largest fantasy genre film festivals along with Spain's Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival of Belgium.
