That time of the month for a Podcast episode. This morning I recorded Episode 121 of the Podcast The Outside Centre. We have three World Cinema films from The Czech Republic, Italy and Spain…
This week we are reviewing two Foreign Language Oscar nominations. Firstly, Czech film The Painted Bird about a boy during WWII and his travels across Europe. The film has been compared to the work of Tarkovsky and it reached the semi final list of the Foreign Language Oscar process before just falling short of the final group.
Next, Italian film The Traitor which is a biopic of Sicilian boss Tommaso Bucsetta played by Pierfranco Farino, which was also put forward for Cannes Film Festival 2019.
Finally, Spanish film The Occupant which is on Netflix and is about a unemployed, jealous businessman called Javier who wishes to return to his idealized home.
