    In my opinion. The race as it stands now is

    1. The Hand of God

    2. Parallel Mothers

    3. A Hero

    4. The Worst Person in the World

    5. Most likely an Asian/Latin American/African nominee but definitely not another European nominee.

     

    If Italy and Spain’s selection committees want to shake it up a bit, they could instead submit the following surprise picks…

    A Chiara – Jonas Carpignano (Italy)

    Official Competition – Gastón Duprat and

    Mariano Cohn (Spain)

     

    That’s how I see the International Feature race at the moment but of course anything can happen from now till March.

    Flee

    The Hand of God

    A Hero

    Parallel Mothers

    The Worst Person in the World

     

    This really feels like the consensus. Which means on of them probably won’t make it.

    Flee will depend on a country picking it to submit. I don’t know which country would submit it.

    I guess it would be Denmark, home country of the director. It would be amazing to see a film manage nominations in Animated, Documentary, Foreign, and maybe even a 10th BP slot.

    Interesting to see the impact of Cannes this year. Not sure how heavy of a hitter Titane, Memoria or Compartment No.6 will be, but I could see them all being selected (Memoria for Colombia). Not sure if Israel will go with Ahed’s Knee…

    Some fog could clear after Venice wraps. Could be 5-6 submissions in the line-up.

    Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s having a wild year. I imagine Japan will pick one of his two films. (I don’t think Wife of A Spy is eligible this year, but he wrote that too…).

    7 Prisoners has been receiving good reviews from Venice. It will probably be the Brazilian submission.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Saw Compartment no.6. I think it is a beautiful crowd pleaser, just the sort of film that could go down well with the academy.

    I’ve yet to see Titane, but from what I hear, it is a rather extreme film, too violent and explicit for the academy’s taste.

    Living in Israel, I too am doubtful about the chances of Ahed’s Knee being the Israeli choice. From what I hear, the favorite choice is Eran Kolirin’s new film Let There be Morning (saw a preview screening of that film and loved it. brought back memories of the much loved Band’s Visit, although it is not as good).

    And regarding the Japanese selection – I’m supposed to see Drive my car in about 2 weeks, and I noticed it is 3 hours long. maybe it is too long for the academy…

    Memoria for Colombia

    Has there been much word about this? I was surprised by the amount of English dialogue in the film, so part of me questions whether it will even meet the dumb eligibility criteria.

    If it has a lot of English dialogue, then I’m sure the committee will disqualify the movie. Last year, Portugal submitted Listen, and it got disqualified due to heavy use of the English language. But Portugal was still able to submit Vitalina Varela instead, so Colombia will probably have a second chance, as well, if they do submit Memoria.

    I think Compartment n°6 is in very good position for a nomination thanks to Sony Pictures Classics and its strong Cannes reviews.
