France has selected Emmanuel Finkiel’s World War II drama Memoir of War, starring Melanie Thierry and Benjamin Biolay, as its submission for the best foreign-language film category at the Oscars.

The movie was a selected from a diverse shortlist of five thematically different titles, from Shoahdirector Claude Lanzmann’s final film, Holocaust testimony documentary The Four Sisters, to Gaspar Noe’s pulsating disco fever dream-turned-nightmare Climax.

Xavier Legrand’s hard-hitting family divorce drama Custody, which won best director and best debut in Venice last year, and Emmanuel Mouret’s Mademoiselle de Joncquieres, the 18th century historical drama starring Edouard Baer and Cecile de France that screened in Toronto in September, were also in the running.

The final selection was a seemingly difficult decision for the committee, which added a third day of deliberations after failing to come to a decision earlier in the week.
