The Toronto Film Critics Association named the Coen Brothers' "No Country for Old Men" as the best film of 2007, while Charles Ferguson's "No End in Sight" won best documentary. Viggo Mortensen was cited for best performance by a male for his work in David Cronenberg's "Eastern Promises," which was a runner-up as best film to "No Country for Old Men." There was a tie for best performance by a female between English veteran Julie Christie, the Alzheimer's patient in Sarah Polley's "Away From Her," and Canadian newcomer Ellen Page, the pregnant teenager in Jason Reitman's "Juno." Brad Bird's Ratatouille, the story of a French rat who yearns to become a top chef in Paris, won as best animated feature and Cristian Mungiu's "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days" won best foreign-language film.
