    I thought there was already a thread on this film, but it doesn’t come up with the search engine.

    It was shown in competition in Berlin yesterday. The European reviews are in and they are all raves. The Golden Bear is awarded tomorrow.

    Which other movies were shown in the festival besides this one? I hope Boyhood gets to be in the Oscar race next year. Not that that’s a requirement these days but if they are going to award/recognize the best movies of the year, let them be good.

    All the French reviews were scathing about the other entries. Wes Anderson’s latest got some good reviews, particularly from the Brits.

    Here’s a link to Screen Daily’s (difficult to read) list of films shown so far and critical scores (this was before two critics had been able to rate Boyhood, so its figures will go up). Le Monde is already fretting that some inferior film will steal the title from the masterpiece that is Boyhood!

    Goes to show Linklater’s tale is not too American to appeal to cinéphiles everywhere.

    OK, having seen this flick, I’ll fearlessly predict the following nominations:

    Best Picture
    Best Director Richard Linklater
    Best Original Screenplay Richard Linklater
    Best Actor Ellar Coltrane
    Best Actress Patricia Arquette
    Best Supporting Actor Ethan Hawke
    Best Editing (whoever edited it)

    Maybe in the sense that it’ll get overlooked by the Oscars, otherwise the two films are very different. Linklater is sort of the anti-Malick for me. Interesting that the two (who both live in Austin) are apparently very close friends.

    Sandra Adair. They work together a lot.

    Really like Linklater’s films. Looking forward to seeing this at my first opportunity.

    Yes, agree all the way!
    Arquette really truly deserves a nod at the very least, a win is well deserved. I do not see any other performances possibly being more naturalistic and honest than hers as Olivia. Her character goes through it all. Better chance as lead or supporting??

    Great trailer and it gives a good idea of how funny and incredibly moving the film is. Please, please, don’t let Richard Linklater be overlooked again!  Just because he is a low-key, modest, gentle genius as compared to the noisy divas who populate Hollywood…
