Commissioner Vassiliou, who is responsible for education and culture, said, “What a great night for the European film industry and the MEDIA programme. Europe loves cinema and the world loves our films! My congratulations to Tom Hooper and Susanne Bier, who showed that you don’t need a massive budget to make world-beating films. This shows that the European film industry can compete with the best.”Maybe they also claimed that the Dambusters was an EU project because the Lancasters flew over Germany, and the Italian Job, because it was filmed in Italy.
The Guardian doesn’t really get economics, does it?
