Hollywood's big night -- Take 9
Best foreign-language film turned out to be a shocker. I don't know of many (any?) who predicted Japan's "Departures" would beat France's "The Class" or Israel's "Waltz With Bashir," which should have also been included in the best animated feature category. If you want to read a review of "The Departures," try Variety. I haven't seen the movie, but it would have to be truly great to be better than either "The Class" or "Waltz With Bashir."
