Oscars announce foreign-language film shortlist

Just a week before the Academy Award nominations are announced (January 24, bright and early), the Academy has released the nine-film short list — the semi-finalists, if you will — for the foreign language film category. Here they are, listed in alphabetical order by country, along with information (if I have it) on when we might see these movies in Seattle.
Belgium, “Bullhead” (directed by Michael R. Roskam)
Canada, “Monsieur Lazhar” (Philippe Falardeau)
Denmark, “Superclasico,” (Ole Christian Madsen)
Germany, “Pina” (Wim Wenders) — opening at Cinerama February 10
Iran, “A Separation” (Asghar Farhadi) — tentatively opening here Feb. 3
Israel, “Footnote” (Joseph Cedar)
Morocco, “Omar Killed Me” (Roschdy Zem)
Poland, “In Darkness” (Agnieszka Holland) — tentatively opening here in early March
Taiwan, “Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale” (Wei Te-sheng)
Among the eligible high-profile foreign films not making the semifinals: Zhang Yimou’s “The Flowers of War” (opening here Friday) from China; Aki Kaurismaki’s “Le Havre” (played here last year, and a lovely film) from Finland; and Valerie Donzelli’s “Declaration of War” from France (opening here in February).
