After so much waiting, this Sunday the 95th Oscar awards ceremony was held, the most important in cinema. Despite the great expectations that existed with the film “Argentina, 1985”, the German film “All Quiet on the Front” won the statuette in the category of Best International Film.

The feature film surpassed not only the film starring Ricardo Darín and Peter Lanzani, but also “Close”, “Eo”, and “The quiet girl”.

The European film is based on the world bestseller of the same name signed by Erich Maria Remarquepublished in 1929. It tells the exciting story of a young German soldier on the Western Front during World War I, where the main character, Paul Bäumery (Felix Kammerer) and his companions, experience firsthand how the initial euphoria of war turns to despair and fear as they fight for their lives—and the lives of others—in the trenches.

Darín’s message after not getting the award

After the gala, the actor sent a message to all the Argentines who followed the ceremony: “I deeply feel in my heart the “possible” disappointment that many people in Argentina may have felt. because I know how they were, but that’s the way it is, you win and you lose but you have to know how to lose too. Now we value previous awards much morebecause it seems that Mecca is only the Oscars and not everything else”.
