So what are some contenders? I thought City of God was good, but the material may not be suitable.

I've heard that Italy's "Io Non Ho Paura" is a runner. I've seen it, and I thought it was a contender.

It's too late for City of God to be entered, I think. I believe it was Brazil's submitted film for last year, but did not make the final five. I've seen a list of all the films nominated, and (at the time, at least) didn't know any of them.

i also think City of God has been submitted last year, 2002. Anyway, I am hoping Russia's "The Return" will get in. I also hear good reviews about Germany's "Good Bye Lenin".

Maybe we could take a hint from the Golden Globe nominations. 8)
(1) The Barbarian Invasions From Canada
(2) Good Bye, Lenin! From Germany
(3) Monsieur Ibrahim From France
(4) Osama From Afghanistan
(5) The Return From Russia

But of course the Oscar list might be different.

The Mexican submission will be ignored by the Academy. It's a Mexican-Hungarian co-production titled "ARO TOLBUKHIN:In the Mind of a Killer". It's a brilliant mix of documentary and fiction about a merchant marine from Budapest who joins a Spanish catholic mission in Guatemala in the late 70s and confesses to a series of murders of indigineous women and children. It's playing at festivals around the world, including every Latino fest in the US. Available in video in Mexico and Spain.
