Sixty-five countries have submitted films for consideration in the Foreign Language Film category for the 83rd Academy Awards. BIUTIFUL, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, is the official submission for Mexico.

Writing in Deadline, Mike Fleming writes “While the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-directed BIUTIFUL already figured to be an Oscar contender, for a performance by Javier Bardem that won Best Actor honors at Cannes, the picture is now a contender for Best Foreign Language film.” BIUTIFUL will be released December 29 in New York and Los Angeles to qualify for Oscars and will get a wider release early next year.
