    Seems to me that Haneke and von Trier rotate their years, prolonging the torture year after year. However, I am planning on seeing Amour as soon as possible. I’ll be seeing The Intouchables this weekend. The box office for this film amazes me. Even domestically and here in Canada, where many have told me they “dont like to read and watch at the same time”.

    I’d love to sit by the fire, have a pitcher of vodka martinis next to me, and a stack of DVD’s of these titles and watch them all until I explode.

    wait so The Artist didn’t even make the 47 film shortlist? Just a People’s Choice nomination?

    Oh ok good. So why is it allowed to compete again this year, even if it is a different category?

    That would make sense – it likely only opened in France and a couple other countries during the awards year, so it wouldn’t have been a known film for most of Europe.

    You are so right Jose. Intouchables could be the best film experience I’ve had so far this year, and perhaps last year (and the year before, lol). Absolutely LOVED this movie. Omar Sy is incredible! And so is Francois Cluzet.

    BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.

    BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI began his career as an assistant director to Pier Paolo Pasolini on ACCATTONE and directed his first feature film at the age of 21. His second film, BEFORE THE REVOLUTION (1964), was released to great acclaim and he has never since then stopped to shape the way we look at cinema. His 1970 film THE CONFORMIST with Jean-Louis Trintignant and Stefania Sandrelli premiered in Berlin, won the Italian David di Donatello for Best Film and received Bertolucci’s first Oscar nomination and his 1972 film LAST TANGO IN PARIS with Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider and Jean-Pierre Léaud received another two Oscar nominations. His fame increased with the epic 1900 (1976) with Robert de Niro, Gérard Depardieu and Burt Lancaster and THE LAST EMPEROR (1987) which won a total of nine Oscars, three BAFTA Awards, the French César, nine David di Donatello awards, and a special jury award at the inaugural European Film Awards in 1988. Among his later films are THE SHELTERING SKY (1990) with Debra Winger and John Malkovich and THE DREAMERS (2003) which was nominated for the EFA Audience Award and the Spanish Goya. Bernardo Bertolucci’s latest film ME AND YOU (2012) premiered in the official selection, out of competition, at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

    They must be kiding one of the worst “serious” film that I have seen this year. It tries so hard to appeal to art-house audience that it makes me sick.
