Foreign Language Film Shortlist

Only nine films made the final cut to compete for the slots for the Foreign Language Film category. Here are the films which will try to make the list:

3 Monkeys (Turkey)
The Baader Meinhof Complex (Germany)
The Class (France)
Departures (Japan)
Everlasting Moments (Sweden)
The Necessities of Life (Canada)
Revanche (Austria)
Tear This Heart Out (Mexico)
Waltz With Bashir (Israel)

The big snub here is the absence of Gomorrah, considered one of the favorites for the Oscars throughout the season. We'll see if Waltz With Bashir shall walk away with the award here again. What do you think will make the top 5?
