The entry made by France for the foreign-language category at the Oscars is “Elle”. This movie, which has been qualified as controversial at a recent film festival, has been helmed by Paul Verhoeven, who directed “Basic Instinct”.

“Elle”: the French film at the Oscars

Having a delicate subject-matter, “Elle” is a film that will contend against other non-English speaking projects at the Oscars. Two other prominent foreign pictures that have officially been selected and submitted are Yoji Yamada’s “Nagasaki: Memories of My Son”, as well as Pedro Almodóvar’s “Julieta”. The 2017 selection will feature motion-pictures from renowned cinematographers.

A different film style than “Basic Instinct” by Paul Verhoeven

The storyline of “Elle” revolves around a sexual assault. Indeed, the main character is viciously raped by a man she knows. She decides to deal with this tragic event by refusing to succumb to victimhood. The fact that this project was sent to the Oscars by the French is quite risky, according to IndieWire. “Elle” was received with critical-acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, but it did raise some controversy.

A movie that may not please American cinema lovers

The reason why IndieWire has qualified the selection of “Elle” for the Academy Awards as risky is that the audience at the Oscars may react differently than European ones. That being said, The Hollywood Reporter’s Leslie Felperin has written that this project may be “the smartest, most honest and empowering film about rape” she has ever seen. Will the judges at the Oscars be as open-minded?

The selection team for this motion-picture

The committee that selected “Elle” as the motion-picture that would represent France at the Oscars is composed of Thierry Frémaux, the head of Cannes Film Festival; Frédérique Bredin, who leads the National Cinema Center and Alain Terzian, the French Academy President, among others. Léa Seydoux was also on board this committee.
