Germany selects ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ as 2023 Oscars submission

Baku, August 26, AZERTAC

Edward Berger’s “All Quiet On The Western Front” has been selected from a pool of nine films to fly the flag for Germany in the 2023 Oscars best international feature film category, according to Screen Daily.
The decision, announced on Wednesday evening (August 24), was made by an independent jury appointed by various associations working within the German film industry.
The first German-language adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s classic anti-war novel published in 1928, “All Quiet On The Western Front” is based on the author’s experiences in the First World War trenches and centres on young German soldiers whose initial euphoria over the war turns into desperation.
Jury chairwoman Maria Furtwängler of the German Film Academy, which did not carry a vote, said the panel had recognised “a radical work” and noted how the adaptation was “startlingly topical and makes a powerful statement against war”.
Amusement Park Film produced All Quiet On The Western Front for Netflix. The world premiere is set for TIFF next month and the European premiere will take place at Zurich Film Festival in late September.
Netflix holds worldwide rights and will work with 24 Bilder on the nationwide German release on September 29. The film will open in US cinemas in October and debuts on the platform on October 28.
