Foreign Film Oscar Race Narrows to Nine

war-witch02

I’m a little surprised by the exclusions of Barbara and Lore, but otherwise this list is about what was expected. Having recently seen War Witch and Kon-Tiki (both of which are quite good), I could see either getting into a final five that will likely include Amour, The Intouchables, and No. Here’s the full nine:

“Amour” (Austria)

“Beyond the Hills” (Romania)

“The Deep” (Iceland)

“The Intouchables” (France)

“Kon-Tiki” (Norway)

KON-TIKI Trailer #2 HD (English subtitles) from Joachim Roenning on Vimeo.

“No” (Chile)

“A Royal Affair” (Denmark)

“Sister” (Switzerland)

    Glad to see Rust and Bone fell off the list.
