Oscar Movie Preview: Katyn for Best Foreign Film

As part of my coverage of this year's Oscars, I'll be posting the trailers for as many of the Best Documentary and Best Foreign Language Film nominees as I can find. Since it's often harder to see these films in theaters, it's nice to at least get a taste of them before Oscar night — not to mention that it might help you when you fill out your Oscar ballot.

War was a common theme in the Best Documentary category, and that's the case in the Best Foreign Language Film race as well, as shown by Beaufort yesterday and Katyn today. Katyn, Poland's eighth film ever to be nominated in this category, focuses on the 1940 massacre of thousands of Polish citizens — including a large number of military officers — by the Soviet Union in the Katyn Forest. The story unfolds around several families affected by the massacre, most notably a captain and his wife, who believes that no matter how much evidence she sees to the contrary, her husband will come back to her alive.

The movie looks like a stylized period piece with a powerful story at its heart. To check out the trailer now, just

That's not the best Wajda film but I'm keeping my figers crossed for our old man! :) It's still good though, if you have a chance I really reccomend it, for art and historical reasons.

This looks like a powerful film. I, too, have heard that it may be the leading contender for the award. Thanks for the clip, Buzz.

I've heard good things about this one. I've also heard it's not that easy to watch, but I'll probably go see it sometime in the next few months or so.
