Belfast and Coda.. Glory to the simple scenarios

The Oscars screenplay awards fall into two categories. The first category is the best original screenplay written for the screen, which was awarded to Kenneth Branagh's Belfast.

The second category is the award for the best adapted screenplay, that is, taken from any other medium, which was won by the movie “Coda” based on a French film produced in 2014.

The scenario of these two works combines extreme simplicity, whether in the construction or the idea itself, as the events of Belfast take place in a small Irish city where racism and religious extremism prevail, which pushes the hero’s family to face the difficult choice between staying in the old neighborhood where family members, friends and loved ones, or emigrating for a life Safer.

We follow the narration through the eyes of the child protagonist, making the film closer to a biography of director and writer Kenneth Branagh, whose family made the same choice many years ago.

While the movie "Coda" resembles dozens of films that dealt with the story of a teenager emerging from her family's cloak to start a new life, with the complexity that all her family members suffer from deafness, which is the link between them and the outside world, but the film remains the most classic and traditional among the rest of the films This category is like "Drive My Car" or "Dog Power", in a big surprise from the Oscars.

Best Director for the second year in a row

Jane Campion for "The Power of The Dog" won Best Director, the second year for a woman to win the award, after last year's Chloe Zhao for Nomad land.

In "The Power of the Dog," the director used the hallmarks of the Western genre to turn it in the opposite direction, so we find that the masculinity for which these works are famous transformed in "The Power of the Dog" into a toxic, truly deadly masculinity that not only harms the people around The main character but you kill her is the same.

But despite Campion's win, the number of awards this film has won is certainly disappointing given its 12 nominations.

Drive my car to the Oscars in Japan!
