Russian cinema took a step at the Oscars. Critics praised shortlisted films from Russia
The contender in the nomination “Best Animated Short Film” was the work of Konstantin Bronzit “He Can’t live without Space”. The animator has already twice been nominated for an Oscar in this nomination – for the cartoon “The Lavatory Story – Love Story” in 2009 and for the film “We Can’t Live Without Outer Space” in 2016.
- This time, Bronzit was surprised that his creation was on the list. He believes that the tape is too complicated for the Oscar, and the judges do not like this.
- “This is a heavy film for the academy. It’s much more complicated than the previous one, and they don’t like complex films that are so incomprehensible, so I’m extremely surprised,” said Bronzit.
- Kantemir Balagov’s tape “Dylda” was presented in the nomination “The Best Foreign Language Film”, and the work by Viktor Kosakovsky “Watercolor” will compete for the award in the section “Best Documentary”.
The Final List
The final list of nominees for the 92nd Oscar will be announced on January 13, 2020, and the ceremony itself will be held on February 9. In the meantime, film critics are “sweating” and preparing for a serious event, actor Macaulay Culkin and former NASA engineer set a trap in the style of the New Year’s movie “Home Alone”. This prank was necessary to punish the evil thieves.
“He cannot live without space” A cartoon is a story about a mother and her only son, as well as about fate and destiny. The tape is in no way connected with the previous work “We Can’t Live Without Space” and talks about the childhood dream.
This film is the story of two young front-line women who return to post-war Leningrad and try to find a peaceful life, but at what cost. The Dylan tape has already received two awards from the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
The producers, when they learned about the inclusion of the tape in the shortlist, had warned in advance that a serious fight for an Oscar would flare-up.
This documentary tells the viewer about water. She is the protagonist of the film, shown in all its manifestations and scale – from the frozen waters of Lake Baikal to the glaciers of Greenland and Angel Falls.
Why are they special?
Film critic Anton Dolin in an interview with “360” said that all three tapes deserve a reward, but getting on the shortlist is not even halfway to receiving the figurine. These are three very talented paintings, each of them is original and does not look like anything.
According to Dolina, although Bronzit’s cartoon continues the theme of his previous short film, it’s a completely different work with other themes and characters. Watercolor is a unique creation. This is a story about what water is. And the picture “Dylda” is “a talented study of human psychology after the war.”
He did not begin to evaluate the chances of Russian works to receive the Oscar of Dolins since he did not look at all the tapes from the shortlist.
