AFT Awards: Best Foreign Film

This is the nineteenth category of the 10th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category. For this category, I consider eligible only films that were released in their native countries within the past year.

Honorable mentions:
An Eye for Beauty, Me Myself and Her, Mia Madre, My Golden Days, Sand Storm, Tanna, The Measure of a Man, Things to Come

The winner:
Elle (France) was a unique revenge thriller, both suspenseful and funny, with a magnetic central character and some of the most superb dialogue and well-staged scenes seen on film in a long time.

Other nominees:
Julieta (Spain)
A Man Called Ove (Sweden)
Beyond the Mountains and Hills (Israel)
One Week and a Day (Israel)
