Oscar hopeful La Demora (The Delay) began life as a short story by the wife of director Rodrigo Pla, he told audiences after the films Russian premiere in the competition programme at Moscows 2-in-1 International Film Festival.

This story has one special feature -- all characters speak in the first person. It is a series of monologues delivered by a daughter and a father. For us, it was very important to retain this direct communication, so that each of them could talk on his or her own behalf, Pla said.

Plas challenge was to show how his characters live through the events happening with them. When we worked with the cameras, we installed them so as to focus almost entirely on our main characters. You might notice that all the supporting characters have been filmed either from the side, or the back, the director, screen said.

La Demora is Plas third full-length film and it was awarded an Ecumenical Jury prize at the Berlin IFF in 2012, where it was screened in the Forum Programme. Uruguays national cinema institutions have selected the film as a potential nominee for Best Foreign Language Movie at next years Oscars, and are waiting on the results of the Academys decision when the shortlist is announced in January.

Pla told Moscow audiences that the last Russian film hed seen was Sergei Dvortsevois Tulpan (Tulip) from 2008, but added that he had been brought up watching Tarkovskys work.
