The director of the movie is Jiri Menzel and he is also the one who accepted it. The announcer made a mistake. Im happy that Americans like Czech films.
R.I.P. Jiří Menzel.
The announcer said the wrong name. LOL. "Closely Watched Trains" IS a great film though. Good choice by the Academy.
"Accepting for I even met happy gypsies"? Wtf?

Well, Danny does a lovely job - professional and crisp. But the rest looks like bits from some of his comedy movies..... wrong film announced, then the nerdy acceptance speech and the director ready to exit the wrong way. Funny stuff.
"I Even Met Happy Gypsies", "El Amor Brujo", and "Live for Life" are far better films than "Closely Watched Trains",  overrated at the time because of the political events concerning Czechoslovakia and the U.S.S.R. back then!!!
I haven't seen the Japanese nominee!!!
