Canada’s ‘Days of Darkness’ in running for foreign-film Oscar

Quebec director Denys Arcand’s "Days of Darkness," the final instalment in his trilogy that began with "The Decline of the American Empire," is still in the running for a foreign-language Oscar, organizers said Tuesday.

It’s one of nine movies still in contention.

The films survived a first round of cuts by a group of Oscar voters, who whittled the 63 entries that had been submitted by their home countries down to nine.

Also in the running for the five nominations that will be announced next Tuesday are Austria’s "The Counterfeiters," Brazil’s "The Year My Parents Went on Vacation," Israel’s "Beaufort," Italy’s "The Unknown Woman," Kazakhstan’s "Mongol," Poland’s "Katyn," Russia’s "12" and Serbia’s "The Trap."

The films will be screened by a panel of Oscar voters, who will choose the final nominees for the Feb. 24 awards.
