Golden Globe Nominees: Best Foreign Film

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Waltz with Bashir” and “Gomorra”
Who’s missing? Every French movie made this year, “Revanche,” “The Mermaid”

I know nothing about any of the foreign films this year, save for good words for both “Waltz with Bashir” and “Gomorra.” There were four major French movies that made it over to the United States this year, and at least “I’ve Loved You So Long” was better than “The Class,” which is France’s official Oscar submission. I preferred both “Tell No One” and “A Christmas Tale,” which I’m saddened to see snubbed. With the exception of the aforementioned France note, all the films here are eligible for the Oscar in this category.

Who will win? I’ll go with Waltz with Bashir.
