Four more European territories have announced their nominations for the Oscars’ best foreign-language film category.
Croatia chose local hit comedy Cowboys, directed by Tomislav Mrsic. The film is based on a hit Croatian stage play about a group of friends breaking all rules of theater as they try to put on a play.
Serbia opted for the sequel to a box-office hit about the country’s involvement in the first soccer World Cup in the 1930s, See You in Montevideo, by Dragan Bjelogrlic.
Finland’s choice is atmospheric black-and-white urban thriller Concrete Night, by award-winning director Pirjo Honkasalo.
And Estonia’s nomination is the country’s first co-production with Georgia, Tangerines, by Georgian director Zaza Urushadze. The film is set in the early 1990s, when two elderly ethnic Estonian neighbors find themselves caught up in a bitter civil war in the country’s Abkhazia region, just as their orchards of fruits are ready to harvest.
The deadline for Oscar submissions is Oct. 1. Nominations will be announced Jan. 15, 2015, with the Academy Awards ceremony scheduled for Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
