2011 Oscar odds for Best Foreign Film

The 2011 Oscar odds for Best Foreign film have been released by Bookmaker.com.  This is always a great category to wager on since the payout odds are typically pretty good with the field wide open. 

For now Biutiful is the favorite with -150 odds, requiring a $15 bet to win $10(the $15 bet will be refunded should the film win). 

Biufiful is a drama film directed by Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and starring Javier Bardem.  It is the story of Uxbal – a cancer-ridden single father who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona -- all before his time is up.

Dogtooth comes to us from Greece and is a long shot to win but the payout would be pretty big.  It is a film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos about a husband and wife who keep their children imprisoned on their property into adulthood.

In a Better World is a Denmark film that is somewhat favored at 2/1 odds.   It is directed by Susanne Bier and written by Anders Thomas Jensen.   It won the Golden Globe for “Best Foreign Film”. 

From Wikipedia:  The idea for the film originated when Bier and screenwriter Jensen had discussions about the perception of Denmark as a very harmonious society. They then wanted to write a story where dramatic turns of events would disrupt the image of a place perceived as blissful.

Incendies is a Canadian film that follows two young adults' voyage to the core of deep-rooted hatred, never-ending wars and enduring love.

Outside the Law or Hors-La-Loi comes to us from Algeria with a French majority production.  It is a historically unorthodox portrayal of the 1945 Sétif massacre sparked a political controversy in France.
