I’m really trying my best to have seen as many of the Oscars nominated movies as possible before end of February (so I can win the office sweepstake – again). But the Foreign Language Film is a category that always requires some extra effort.

I can’t complain, though, since I live in London and have the luxury of choosing between many independent cinemas that are likely to pick these titles up.

I noticed, for example, that the Tricycle Cinema in Kilburn is putting on an Oscar season 18-24 February, showing Incendies, Outside the Law and Biutiful plus several of the Best Foreign Language Film semi-finalists. Shame Kilburn is such a bummer to get to.

I wish more cinemas put on Oscar seasons. They could do one category a week. If anybody out there who owns a cinema is listening, I tell you, this would be well received!

Let’s have a look at the nominees then:

Biutiful – Mexico


Dogtooth – Greece


In a Better World aka Haevnen – Denmark


Incendies – Canada


Outside the Law  aka Hors-la-loi
members must attest that they have seen all nominated movies before they are allowed to vote.

The same goes for the Best Feature Documentary category. Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you about the nominees.
