International Oscar Showdown 2007 — The Departed vs The Lives Of Others

The 79th Academy Awards winners for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film were The Departed and The Lives Of Others

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.
