East-West (Est-ouest) (2000)

Never trust a film which has been included in the dubious category of 'Best Foreign Film' in the Oscar sweepstakes. Usually European and usually directed by well-positioned, older, Caucasian men, such films almost invariably evoke historical epochs and collective patriotic memory.
