Best Foreign Language Film is one of those categories that I don’t feel qualified to discuss, mainly because I’ve only seen one of the five films. But…I think I’ve got this.
The shortlist for the Academy Awards Foreign Language Film category surprised me for one particular reason, and that was the omission of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle. Incidentally, it is also the only film in the running that I had the opportunity to see before writing this article. So….we’re just gonna do the best we can.
