International Oscar Showdown 2002 — A Beautiful Mind vs No Man’s Land

The 2002 International Oscar Showdown features A Beautiful Mind versus No Man’s Land
The 74th Academy Awards winners for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film were A Beautiful Mind and No Man’s Land

Bong Joon Ho’s movie Parasite made history at the 2020 Academy Awards, becoming the first non-English-language film to win Best Picture.

In this series, in reverse chronological order, I compare previous years’ Best Picture and Best International Feature to see how many other foreign-language films ought to have been given the top gong.
