No Oscar chance for "Force Majeur"

Swedish film "Force Majeur" by director Ruben Östlund will not be in the running for an Oscar, as it failed to be nominated in the "Best film in a foreign language" category.

The film had been on the nomination short-list, and had also been nominated for a Golden Globe, but failed to get the nod by the Academy Awards jury.

Called "Turist" in Swedish, the film has also won the jury prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival.
