I thought I had linked to Nathaniel R.‘s comprehensive rundown of all the Best Foreign Language feature submissions on Film Experience. Well, I have now. ’06 will be a bitch as far as playing favorites since the three top foreign-language contenders — Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck‘s The Lives of Others (Sony Pictures Classic, 2.9.07), Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth (Picturehouse, 12.29 — submitted by Mexico, shot in Spain) and Pedro Almodovar’s Volver (Sony Pictues Classics, 11.3) — are equally major, exceptional, transporting. I worship each one and there’s no choosing — all three should take home the prize.
