Estonian-Finnish-German co-produced “The Fencer” has been named on the Golden Globes' nominees list for the “Best foreign language film” award.

Klaus Härö's drama about legendary Estonian fencing coach Endel Nelis (1925-1993) stars Estonian Märt Avandi.

"The Fencer" tells a story of a fencing champion who arrives at the small town of Haapsalu after World War II to become a PE teacher. Against the opposition of his superiors, he starts teaching children fencing, thereby finding his life's calling.

The movie is also Finland's nomination at the Oscars.

Estonia's selection for 2015, the Estonian-Georgian co-production "Tangerines" made history when it earned an Oscar nomination. In the end, it was Poland's "Ida" that took home the coveted golden statue.

The Golden Globes will be awarded on January 10, with the Oscars set to follow on February 28.
