ROME (AP) - An Italian film about a truck driver's travels across Europe has taken the top award of best film at the Rome film festival.

`'Tir," by director Alberto Fasulo, triumphed on Saturday, beating out a competition heavy on American films, including Spike Jonze's `'Her," starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson.

The best actress went to Johansson, whose role in the film used her voice only.

Best actor award went to Matthew McConaughey in `'Dallas Buyers Club."

Tir is the Italian word for big-rig truck.
