best foreign film

With the Oscar nominees out, I skipped the usual Best Actor/Actress lists, and looked at the category that I like: Best Foreign Film:

"El Crimen del Padre Amaro"
An Alameda Films/BluFilms/Foprocine/Gob. del Estado de Veracruz-Llave Production
Mexico

"Hero"
A Beijing New Picture Film Company/Elite Group Enterprises Production
People's Republic of China

"The Man without a Past"
A Sputnik Oy/Pandora Film/Pyramide Prods. Production
Finland

"Nowhere in Africa"
An MTM Medien & Television München Production
Germany

"Zus & Zo"
A Filmprodukties de Luwte Production
The Netherlands

To my shock, Almodovar's "Talk to Her" or Cuarón's "Y Tu Mamá También" weren't on the list, but "Hero" is. Can it win? Possibly. But the buzz on "El Crimen" is pretty good.
