After finding out that Argentina, 1985 was nominated for Best International Film in the next installment of the Oscar awards, Ricardo Darin He was very happy about the news.
“It’s spectacular. I hadn’t gotten on the anxiety machine much, until now that we turned on TV to see what was happening,” he said in dialogue with Radio con Vos.
“What is highly valued in the film is the script, the direction and the performances,” he added about the reasons why the film achieved this achievement for him. “It seems to me that the film was considered in general terms,” he reflected on the film directed by Santiago Miter.
“What this film generates is impressive. That kind of emotional seesaw. You cannot help but consider that it is fair to put this issue back on the table, whatever you think,” argued the actor about the plot of the film, centered on one of the darkest times in the history of the country.
In this sense, Darin referred to the director: “He deserves it because he is a great young director and a brilliant person. With him, we seek a working method of not letting ourselves be impressed by reality. Not copying the personality of [Julio César] Strassera. We fed on different information and since it is a mixture of fiction and reality, the film allowed us a margin of freedom with all the characters,” he concluded.
Remember that Argentina, 1985 will compete for the statuette along with All Quiet on the Front (Germany), Close (Belgium), EO (Poland) and The Quiet Girl (Ireland).
The Oscars ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 12, at its historic Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, in California, United States. The gala will be hosted by presenter, comedian and actor Jimmy Kimmel.
