Argentina, 1985: This Sunday goes for the BAFTA, before reaching the Oscar


It is given by the British Film Academy. Santiago Miter's film is a candidate for film spoken in a non-English language. With whom do you compete?

This Sunday the BAFTAs, the prizes awarded annually by the British Film and Television Academy, are awarded, and

Argentina, 1985

is more than invited.

Santiago Miter's film arrives in London

with the momentum that won the Golden Globe, and the Goya, last Saturday


Santiago Miter and his partner, Dolores Fonzi, Peter Lanzani, and the producers Victoria Alonso, Agustina Llambi Campbell and Axel Kuschevatzky will travel to the British capital, for Amazon Studios Javiera Balmaceda and James Farrell, and the executive producers Cindy Teperman and Phin Glynn.

This will happen three weeks before the big date in Hollywood, at the Dolby Theatre, where he will go for the Oscar for best international film.

And if we focus on the titles with which it competes this Sunday, there are only two that were also nominated for the Hollywood Academy Award.

They are

All Quiet on the Front

(Germany, by Edward Berger) and

The Quiet Girl

(Ireland, by Colm Bairéad).

As the main contender in the category is

All Quiet Front

, the film that can be seen on Netflix, and which obtained no less than 14 BAFTA nominations, including best general film, direction, supporting actor, adapted screenplay and not many. , but all the items of the so-called technicians, from music and photography to makeup.

The plot takes place on the German front in World War I.

The Quiet Girl

is also set in the past, in 1981. It centers on a girl, Cáit, who is sent away for the summer by her dysfunctional family to live with Seán and Eibhlín Cinnsealach, a couple she has never met.

Slowly, Cáit will discover a new way of living, but also a secret.

She also competes in an adapted script.

The other two films nominated for BAFTA, but which did not make the Oscar "cut", are


(Belgium, by Marie Kreutzer), about Elizabeth of Austria (Sissi), the First Lady, wife of Emperor Franz Joseph I, and must adopt a strict regimen of fasting and exercise.

She but she rebels.


Decision to Leave

(South Korea, by Park Chan-wook), about a meticulous detective investigating a murder and falling in love with the victim's widow.

The filmmaker is also competing in the best direction category.

The German "All Quiet on the Front" is the main competition for "Argentina, 1985" at the BAFTA and at the Oscars.

El secreto de sus ojos

, by Juan José Campanella, and which is the last Argentine film to win an Oscar, was at the time a BAFTA candidate in the category of best non-English language film.

He did not win it, since the statuette went to

The men who did not love women

, which was not an Oscar nominee.

El secreto de sus ojos

was the only Argentine film that had been nominated for a BAFTA in this category, so Argentina, 1985 is the second.

It can be repeated, just as

The official story

was nominated for the Golden Globe (and won it), and then took the Oscar,

Argentina, 1985

won the Golden Globe.

I choose to believe.

In the category of best film, everything seems to be settled between

The Spirits of the Island

, by Martin McDonagh, and

Everything everywhere at the same time


One is very local - and also competes in the best British film section - and the other, American.


Los Fabelmans

does not appear among the candidates was surprising: of the important awards, it only aspires to original script, for Spielberg, which he co-authored with Tony Kushner.

"The spirits of the island", with Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell, is on point as a candidate for best film.

Between the BAFTAs this Sunday and the Oscars on Sunday March 12,

Argentina, 1985

will compete in two other awards, the Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards (February 24) and the Satellite Awards (March 3).

It has already won, in addition to the Golden Globe and the Goya (given by the Spanish Film Academy), the Freedom of Expression Award from the National Board of Review, the Audience Award at the San Sebastian Festival, and in its world premiere, at the Venice Mostra, in September, he won two unofficial prizes, the Critics' Prize (FIPRESCI) and the Signis.

And it is entering, with the BAFTAs, in the final sprint.

Winning would be an accolade, a few days before the final voting for the Oscar opens, which is on Thursday, March 2.

I choose to believe.
