France to send 'La guerre est declaree' to Oscars

France has chosen "La guerre est declaree" ("War is declared") to represent it at next year's Oscars.

Each year, countries are invited to submit a film to be considered for the Academy Award for the best foreign language film.

A committee at the National Center for Cinematography chose the film Friday.

"La Guerre est declaree" is about the difficulties faced by a couple whose son is seriously ill. It was directed by Valerie Donzelli and has won a handful of prizes in France.
