Interesting not a lot of movies I know in that list, I'm looking forward to the Oscars but only because I've seen a lot of those movies.

I really must watch Des hommes at des Dieux, seems great...
I can't believe Arthur 3 got a nomination for best Animation, I haven't seen it but I have seen the firs two and they are really quite bad. Definitely below average animations.
Cool post, glad to see someone taking a look at the Cesar instead of all the Oscar hype!

I think I'll just rely on your blog for information regarding foreign films.

Isaac said...

I need to become more cultured, I don't recognize the lot of those :(

Bonjour Tristesse said...

Now you have another reason to see it. It just won for best film.

Jack L said...

And I just finished watching it :)
It's kind of weird to watch a film while it is in the process of winning awards.
Great film though, it deserved the win!

Doo said...
