Finally An Oscar for An Arabic Movie?
Is this the year when finally an Arabic movie wins an Oscar?
This year, there's an array of movies that deserve an Oscar, one of which is definitely Nadine Labaki's "Hala' La Wein?"
The others include the Moroccan/Algerian movie "Omar Qatalani" and Egyptian movie "Al Shaouq".
If you haven't heard of "Omar Qatalani", it's a strong movie with a brave look at Justice and the judicial system. It is said that Justice is a blindfolded woman that is honest and chooses the guilty and the innocent conscientiously ... but the truth is otherwise! There is no blindfold and the choice is in many cases based on race, color or religion and not on truth and facts!
In the competition also is an Iranian movie, which critics say will top the others, entitled "A Separation". This movie is already being called the best foreign movie of the year!
So, what do you think?
Have you heard of any of the movies listed above?
Which one do you think deserves to win an Oscar this year?
