Oscars presents foreign film Foreign Films symposiums. Providing insight into the directors’ Oscar-nominated films.

Foreign Film Theatre

Gathering Saturday to attend the evening Nominees Symposium we found ourselves surrounded by many who attend every year. One family is attending for the 24th year, they did miss the first symposium.

Sitting in the theatre the white screen where the top films in history screened. Today the top foreign film directors surround me. The stories fill the sound of people’s stories and lives. Taking in all the emotions that the directors have developed. It is a true honor.

Host Academy Governor Mark Johnson during the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Oscar Week: Foreign Language Films 

This is the 60th year for the Foreign Film category; La Strada states, “It took The Academy 27 years to realize that not all great filmmaking is American.” Mark Johnson, Academy governor representing the Producers Branch and the chair of the Foreign Language Film Award Executive Committee, stated, “there is a depth in this category, foreign films, they are becoming more accessible. It is not necessary to make an American film.” This year the Academy nominated 5 films from 85 submitted foreign films. The nominted films are Tanna, Land Of Mine, Tori Erdmann, The Salesman, and A Man Called Ove.

Foreign Language Film Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle
Hannes Holm A Man Called Ove Foreign Language Film Oscars

Foreign Film A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove brings the sense of losing a lifelong partner to reality. This may be something many will experience in their lifetime, but not understand until that time. Hannes Holm, The Director, talks about taking a novel to the film he says, “He felt like a thief taking the book story to film. The version is his not the author’s version of the book. Frederick Morheden, the novelist, told him yes!”

The story is of a husband losing his wife. The struggle with disorder and absence of her presence he becomes desperate with the struggle. He turns to enforcing association rules and gives up on life. He develops a most unlikely relationship.

Holm’s discussed the film with us after the symposium. He feels that each time the movie is different. He believes that he is only fifty percent of a film. The audience is the other fifty percent. Holms is htrilled to be theatre where some of the world’s greatest films are screened.

This film’s nomination and awards also include: “Nominated – Best Foreign Language Film and Best Achievement for Makeup & Hairstyling (Love Larson & Eva von Bahr), 89th Academy Awards® Winner – Best European Comedy, 29th European Film Awards Winner – Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), 2016 Seattle International Film Festival Golden Space Needle Award, Winner – Audience Award, Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), Best Makeup (Love Larson & Eva Von Bahr), 2016 Guldbagge Awards, Winner – Audience Award, 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival & 2016 Traverse City Film Festival Winner – Audience Award for Best Film, 2016 Scottsdale International Film Festival.” This film may be viewed here Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft, and ViaPlay.

They did have a few issues the almost imploded the film. The tribe members had never seen a film. The crew created a natural warm. the environment for a cast that did not even have a sense of filmmaking to be comfortable and present their best acting. They filmed a lot to ensure a good presence. The story had no written script. The story is a collaborated dialog based on each day shooting best. There were no rehearsals.

The world primer was with tribe. The chief said, “This is our Movie.” This film’s awards also include: Awards: AACTA Award for Best Original Music Score, Special Mention for Feature-length Fiction Film Nominations: AACTA Award for Best Direction. You can view the film on Amazon.

Foreign Film Toni Erdmannthe

Toni Erdmannthe, a film about a jokester father and his very busy CEO daughter. He hires someone to play his daughter. He wonders who is going to pay that bill.

The film has received criticism regarding the length. Director, Maren Ade,states, “Took notes after premiere and was afraid to make those changes. She stewed a few days but left it.” The comedy is character driven. The play with the dentures developed from a set that was a gift while the director was a waitress.

Foreign Film The Salesman

The Salesman is about a couple begins performing Death of A Salesman their relationship begins to change. Asghar Farhadi, from Iran, was not in attendance at the symposium. He made a choice to stay away after the recent ban by the US President put in place a travel ban. He did send a message that he was honored to be nominated and had a lot of respect for the Academy. All directors present signed a letter in solidarity with Farhadi.

We had the honor of meeting actor Brian Avery after the event. He is thrilled for Oscars week. He found the films to be inspirational in talent and film. You can learn more about Avery’s acting career here.

The symposium provides a great insight to the processes of filmmaking and how it works world wide. Many film makers receive funding from their governments. Looking forward to the announcement at the 89th Oscars for Foreign Language Film 60th winner.

  • Karyn Kusama Destroyer
  • Marielle Heller Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • Tamara Jenkins Private Life
  • Josie Rourke Mary Queen of Scots

Network television did not receive a lot of nominations this year. This may be the time for television to reevaluate the future shows. 

The big film snub is Mary Poppins for the best original song. This was expected to top the nomination. Paddington film did not receive one nomination. Ryan Gosling’s performance in First Man was not recognized with a nomination for best actor. First Man left out of best director and best drama. Highly acclaimed film Widows received no nominations. 

Surprises Golden Globes

Vice took home the top number of nominations with six. 

  • Best Musical/Comedy
  • Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy 
  • Best Supporting Actress
  • Best Supporting Actor
  • Best Director

MTV Red Carpet

Think pink and red for the colors on the red carpet this evening. Men sporting the color with their suit choices for the evening. Women bring the couture to pantsuits to the red carpet for a glamorous evening. It is a great red carpet with the ability to be more casual.

Lakeith Stanfield looks fantastic in his jacquard suit red suit. He and Tessa Thompson brought the matching co-host to the red carpet. Percy Romeo Miller Jr. looks dapper in his Saint Laurent pink suit. Zendaya brings chocolate to the red carpet. She looks like a caramel filled Hershey’s kiss and pulls it off well. Hostess Tiffany Haddish has fun with her dress on the red carpet. Reminds me of the Easter and you would get that fun frilly dress and want to play and twirl.

MTV Show

Haddish, the first black woman to host the evening, she took a moment to discuss Kim Kardashian’s hair and how that show is a “Star Wars” franchise. The recipients took time to bring the audience to their messages.

  • Chad Boseman presents his Best Hero statue to James Shaw Jr. a real-life hero that stopped the Waffle House Shooting in Tennessee.
  • Lady Gaga apologizes to the audience after receiving Best Music Documentary for Five Foot Two, she recently found out she is 5’ 3 ¾”
  • Chris Pratt provides us with his nine rules
    • “Breathe. If you don’t you’ll suffocate.”
    • “You have a soul. Be careful with it.”
    • “Don’t be a turd. If you’re strong, be a protector. And if you’re smart be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons. And do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
    • “When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger. They won’t even know they’re eating medicine.”
    • “Doesn’t matter what it is, earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it’s good for your soul.
    • “God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”
    • “If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door. Sit down. Get all the pee out first, okay? And then once all the pee’s done, poop. Flush. Boom. You minimize the amount of time that the poop is touching the air. ‘Cause if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee. Then you’re peeing on top. It’s stirring it up. The poop particles create a cloud. It goes out and then everyone in the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me. It’s science.”
    • “Learn to pray. It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.”
    • “Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you, you’re perfect just the way you are. You’re not. You are imperfect. You always will be. But there is a powerful force that designed you that way. And it loves you. And if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. And like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood, do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”
  • Millie Bobby Brown, Best Performance in a Show, recently suffered a knee injury and was not able to attend, had a wonderful video about being nice.
    • She says, “Since I know there are many young people watching this, and even to the adults, too — they could probably use the reminder — I was taught, if you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it,”
    • She continues, “There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate it and neither should any of you. If you need a reminder of how well you are and to rise above the hate, message me on Instagram.” This is something she is experiencing on social media herself.
  • Keiynan Lonsdale, Best Kiss in a Show had the best line of the evening “Kiss the one that you love no matter what gender they are”

A Woman’s World, The Beguiled ~ Cannes

A Woman’s World, The Beguiled ~ Cannes

The Beguiled Red Carpet Cannes Film Festival
The Beguiled Red Carpet Cannes Film Festival

The Beguiled is one of the most anticipated films at Cannes Film Festival. Director, Sofia Coppola, brings the woman’s point of view and how it was for these women during this time period. The original film was from the man’s point of view. This point of view brings a new dynamic to the melodramatic remake.

Film synopsis At a girls’ school in Virginia during the Civil War, where the young women are sheltered from the outside world, a wounded Union soldier is taken in. Soon, the house is taken over with sexual tension, rivalries, and an unexpected turn of events.

This film is a remake of (The Beguiled (1971).  Both films are based on the novel The Beguiled by Thomas Cullinan. The first film brings the male perspective of a wounded Union soldier. Coppola brings the story back with the perspective of the women in the boarding school.

The Beguiled Movie 4Chion Lifestyle
The Beguiled Movie

The revisiting of this film creates its own dynamics. Coppola says, “I never tried to remake the film, go back and tell my story. I wanted to forget that and to imagine how I would make this film.” She brings the women’s stories and perspective to the forefront.

Beguiled Cannes Film Festival 4Chion Lifestyle

Coppola discusses the film being a feminist film, she states, “It is up to the audience to determine how they want to take it. I put my thoughts into film and you can determine how it affects you. I was making the film from the female point of view. The core of the story is the power struggle between the male and female.” The story brings this struggle to the center of the film.

Living in a boarding school atmosphere where they are all women who are functioning well, until the new dynamic, Farrell enters the school. Kidman states about Farrell’s character, “I think he comes in an ruins everything. We were fine. We only could not procreate. Good riddance to him.” The dynamic changes for each person in the film.

Kirsten Dunst, plays Edwina Dabney in the film, says “all these people pent-up together no matter male, female, or a mixture. There will always be something that comes out it is a survivalist technique. Colin just happens to be what all our aggression, energy, and emotions corseted up, lets say. They get unleashed because this new dynamic comes in.” This does bring a change for the girls attending the boarding school.

The Beguiled Nicole Kidman 4Chion Lifestyle

Nicole Kidman recalls Martha Farnsworth, her character in the film, “is very maternal. Kidman states, “She is there to protect these girls in a very treacherous difficult time. Her motivation is to protect them, to guide them, to bring them, so when the war ends they are capable.” Farrell’s character makes it difficult for the continued protection.

Colin Farrell, John McBurney character in the film, states “It has been a journeyman to get here. Many miles of roads and many corsets. It was an amazing experience shooting this film. Coppola sets a particular mood, one that is of comfort, of ease, trust, and an environment that allows you as an actor to explore and play. It was my favorite experience and shoot. Sophia is a creative beast of an engine with tenderness, elegance, and a gentility.”  Looking forward to this film? It will be in theaters June 20, 2017.

Just a few fun notes from the press conference Kidman and Coppola often swiped their hair from the left side of their faces at the same time. Kidman discusses working through mistakes, “I try to focus on the positive. Sometimes you fail and sometimes you succeed.  That is the journey. You just get back up. . . You fall over you brush off your knees and get back up. It is a really hard thing to do. You cry and you feel. It is not saying don’t feel, but experience it navigates and get move through it. . . I’ll learn from everything.”

This 70th year will continue to evolve film worldwide. Stay tuned here for coverage of events from fashion, red carpet, actresses/actors, and films.
