takes a foreign movie and fails to give the proper credit to the original.
There was no mention that I remember during the Oscars that this film was a Franco-Belgian production.
Hollywood has a long history of this failure to recognize the original movies.

I am afraid this is the latest in a long line of remakes of foreign-language films for American consumption. Mention of its origin might be in very small print in the credits ?
The whole subject of remakes is interesting in itself as a lot of people don't like to watch films 'en version originale' which is a great shame in my opinion and the French are no different often preferring dubbing which is even worse!
What makes it special is that it won the Oscar for best film so that is something to be proud of nevertheless...
