ZURICH (AP) ' Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has picked up a special honor for a body of work that includes this year's Oscar-nominated "Biutiful," the haunting tale of a cancer-stricken father.

The director acclaimed for movies such as "Babel" and "Amores Perros" received a Golden Eye award for career achievement Saturday night from the Zurich Film Festival.

It is the first time the festival has given one of its top awards to a Mexican director.

Inarritu's movies have been nominated for 10 Oscars and feature his well-known style of interweaving several simultaneous plot lines.

The festival in Switzerland's biggest city ends Sunday after drawing an estimated 45,000 visitors.
