Nostalgia.Hope and Sacrifice

The academy awards normally come up with lot of stupid choices.
Case in point The Shawshank Redemption never getting an Oscar and Titanic fetching a zillion oscars.One place where they normally never bungle up is the foreign film section.

They are mostly carefully chosen and you can be sure that the list of 5 nominees are a minimum guarantee.This is probably because they go through a 2 tier process,where in the host country selects its best and then the Academy Awards committee prune it further.
Featuring 3 academy award winning movies below.This is a must watch,or if you ever drop by my house,be sure that the dvd would be popped in and ready to play :)

The Lives Of Others -2006 Academy Award For Best Foreign Film


"An innocent prisoner will become more angry by the hour due to the injustice suffered. He will shout and rage. A guilty prisoner becomes more calm and quiet. Or he cries. He knows he's there for a reason. The best way to establish guilt or innocence is non-stop interrogation. "



The Lives of Others is a classic movie that features all the above traits.- NHS (Nostalgia Hope and Sacrifice) .It shows how East Germany monitors the citizens with the help of stasi(the secret police).The movie focuses on the life of one such secret officer,who is asked to monitor a set of stage artistes for suspicious activities.His initial dedication to his job is soon overpowered by the empathy he feels for his subjects and tends to agree with the hope and sacrifices undertaken by the subjects.Its a must watch,got a classic climax like all foreign movies and brilliant performances.

Its released in bangalore for now ,do go catch it up,I doubt it will run for another week.

Cinema Paradiso-1989 Academy Award For Best Foreign Film

"Living here day by day, you think it's the center of the world. You believe nothing will ever change. Then you leave: a year, two years. When you come back, everything's changed. The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. What was yours is gone. You have to go away for a long time... many years... before you can come back and find your people. The land where you were born. But now, no. It's not possible. Right now you're blinder than I am."



- A celebration of youth, friendship, and the everlasting magic of the movies.

Cinema Paradiso is an all time favorite,and you can be the typical "masala" guy and still like it,coz this movies involves plain sentiments like our movies.However it shows what is the difference between rational and mature sentiments and that which is portrayed in our movies.A story of a young kid who helps out an old man in the projector room of a theater and goes on to become a successful director.The gaps are filled in with flashbacks and also involves a love affair.
If you are the kind of guy who appreciates powerful dialogues,believes in hope and understand sacrifice ,this is for you.

Nowhere in Africa-2002 Academy Award For Best Foreign Film

"This country saved our lives, but it isn't our country! "



I don't even know where to begin to describe this.Its as simple a story as possible and talks about the entire NHS package.A simple story of a family that migrates to Africa to escape the holocaust,a little girls friendship with a native african,and the native african's support and sacrifice for the family.One of the best supporting actor performances ever,If you don't shed a tear at the end ,you are not human.!
