Lithuania submits Kristijonas Vildziunas' film Back to Your Arms (Kai Apkabinsiu Tave) for Oscar in the category of the best foreign language movie, writes LETA/ELTA.


The film was selected by the Lithuanian Oscar committee which was approved by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Back to Your Arms is a real-life based story about a father (actor Andrius Bialobzeskis) and a daughter (actress Elzbieta Latenaite) who are torn apart by World War Two. After seventeen years, they try to meet in Berlin, two months before the Berlin Wall is built. Last year, Lithuania was represented in the Academy Awards by Latvian Maris Martinsons' Amaya with Lithuanian musician and actor Andrius Mamontovas in the main role.
