The Oscars were awarded in Los Angeles on Sunday night. The science fiction film “Everything Everywhere All At Once” is the winner of the evening – among other things, it has the royal category “Best Movie“. But the German film “Nothing New in the West” has also made history – with four Oscars, including the prize for “Best International Film”.
SZ film expert Tobias Kniebe says: “No German film has done so far.” The Germans could be incredibly happy. The fact that the film is a Netflix production gave it direct access to an international audience. Kniebe thinks that the balance of power between Netflix and the cinema could now be rearranged again. The winner of the evening, the “crazy trip” “Everything Everywhere All At Once”, should be treated to success, says Kniebe: “In film history, it’s always been about doing things that didn’t exist before!” Such projects have often been the greatest successes.
