@Doomnaut: Holy Motors was knocked out earlier in the race. Each country can only submit one film for the initial list; France picked The Intouchables.

Germany's "Barbara" was excellent. Sad to see it got passed over.

I'm glad to see Amour, Michael Haneke's latest masterpiece, is on the short list. In fact, after viewing it in theaters this past week, I wouldn't be surprised if it actually won the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.

I do wish the picture Neighbouring Sounds (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2190367/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1), from Brazil would have been considered. That understated film on class relations is one of the best I've seen all year, as is Amour.

@RBBrittain - Didn't know that, Thanks. Intouchables was a great film also but it doesn't matter because i think Amour is going to win.

Amour seems likely since Das Weisse Band somewhat surprisingly lost out to The Secret in their Eyes at the Oscars. And no offence meant to Zach, but I was actually pleased to see Petzold's Barbara not making the cut. I think his films are turgid, and the director's current standing in Germany is a real Armutszeugnis (as the locals would say) for the contemporary cinema of the nation that gave us Lang, Fassbinder and Wenders.
