entertainment value
An American Director in Albania. Who would have thought he could pull off such a real & emotional film w/ foreign actors in a foreign tongue
genre Drama | foreign
synopsis The film was originally submitted as the Albanian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film, but it was rejected due to protest of Bujar Alimani, the director of Amnesty, that The Forgiveness of Blood shouldn't be eligible due to American artists' input on the project. AMPAS disqualified it and Albania submitted instead Alimani's film. The film deals with the issue of an Albanian family feud.
