The film is going up against four other countries, Belgium for their film, "The Broken Circle Breakdown," Denmark for their film, "The Hunt," Cambodia for their film, "The Missing Picture" and Palestine for their film, "Omar."

The film has brought back Italian cinema to the Academy Awards, the last time a film was nominated for an Oscar was in 2010 and it was "I Am Love." Which that year Italy lost out to the Denmark feature film, "In a Better World." So that could happened this year to since, "The Hunt," is another critic favorite.
