"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Georgia submits "Shindisi"for the Oscars亚博主页

by Nathaniel R

A "Shindisi"actor getting a touch-up on set

Georgia has selected the filmShindisifor the Best International Film competition at the Oscars.亚博主页The film was selected from a list of five titlesby a jury of filmmakers.Dito Tsintsadze's film is a true story based on the 17 Georgian soldiers who died in the village of Shindisi during the Russia-Georgia war of 2008.The cast is a mix of real soldiers and actors...

This is the second Oscar submission for Tsintsadze who they also selected forMediator(2008).The four other films that were in the running this year wereParade,Until Dad Returns,Neighbors,and another Tsintsadze filmInhale-Exhale.He's prolific!

Georgia was nominated with its very first submissionA Chef in Love(1996) but have not returned to the Oscars since (but they've only been submitting religiously since 2007).亚博主页They came close in 2014 though withCorn Islandwhich was a surprise inclusion on the finalist list.Sadly Georgian films almost never make it to US movie theaters so we haven't seen any of their submissions over the years though we can recommend the lovely Georgian filmSince Otar Left(2003) by director Julie Bertuccelli which was strangely not submitted by the country but did get a US release as well as travelling to many film festivals.

Good luck to them.Am I the only one whose mind is still blown by the fact that there are two completely different famous places with the same name?

I think the biggest ones to beat are:

The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao - Brazil

Bacurau - Brazil

Monos - Colombia

Parasite - South Korea

Pain & Glory - Spain

Portrait of a Lady on Fire - France

Les Miserables - France

Atlantique - Senegal

But,we are all here for surprises!!
