Hard to say why I chose it, though it was always an option. Maybe it’s because it has such a foreign touch to it, maybe it’s because it has such a clear winner, maybe because Un homme et une femme is an alltime favorite of mine or because I’m really curious to see The Shop on Main Street. Overall, I’ve seen just 2 of the 5 films, but each of the two at least twice.
This is really not going to be about the winner, but about the experience :)
Here are the 5 ladies that Oscar had chosen for 1966, in alphabetical order:
Anouk Aimée as Anne Gauthier, in A Man and a Woman
Ida Kaminska as Rozalie Lautmann in The Shop on Main Street
