Knaldskalle on Dec 20 2017, 08:45:54 PM wrote:All I can find on IMDb's new revamped country search are three movies that clearly have nothing to do with the country as such, so I guess making it "unconquerable" isn't unreasonable.
There is a bunch of titles on imdb that have fails like that.

For example that Embrace documentary I saw earlier is a 100% Australian production, but they have listed all the countries she visited in the documentary as well. That's why I generally only pick the first mentioned country in this challenge

That was it for me this time around. I'm off to spend Christmas and New Year's with family, so won't have the chance to conquer any more countries this year.

Don't forget that there's an ongoing version of this challenge! You can join with the countries you've already conquered if you're thirsting for more.
Personal film goals for 2019.

Tanna was the official selection of Australia for the Oscars last year. It was even nominated. While the film is shot in Vanuatu, the directors and producers are all Australian. It seems to me that if a country submitted it to the Oscars the film belongs to them.

16. Equatorial Guinea - Where the Road Runs Out (Buitendach, 2014). Quite a sweet feel-good movie about a Ghanese researcher who leaves his job in Rotterdam to go seek his cultural "roots" in Equatorial Guinea, only to find that it's not what he imagined at all.

This mostly takes place in Equatorial Guinea and is filmed there (specifically the island of Bioko, formerly known as Fernando Po), but it seems to be primarily a Dutch/South African co-production (although Equatorial Guinea is listed on IMDb). Most of the dialogue is in English, despite being filmed in the only African country that has Spanish as an official language. Very little else available from there.

Equatorial Guinea has a very short cinematic history. Only recently, have they begun to produce films, specifically documentaries. Here's an article about the "first" feature-length documentary made in Equatorial Guinea (it's in Spanish though).

http://www.afribuku.com/la-primera-peli ... cuatorial/

Here's a blog about the National Institute of Cinematography. It talks about some shorts from the country and names FEGUIBOX, the above mentioned documentary, as the feature-length made in Equatorial Guinea.

Yeah I know that but we can't conquer Vanuatu otherwise since their only ever film (produced a few years ago) is unavailable.

There is a bunch of titles on imdb that have fails like that.

For example that Embrace documentary I saw earlier is a 100% Australian production, but they have listed all the countries she visited in the documentary as well. That's why I generally only pick the first mentioned country in this challenge
:thumbsup: You're a responsible player. I also try to pick films that are genuine to a specific country, not only from the production point of view but also locations, themes, characters, etc. And from what I've seen so far that's usually the approach for everybody in this challenge. I used to follow the first country rule too, IMDb says "if a title is a multi-country production, the order the countries are entered into the addition/update forms is significant and will be reflected in the display order"), although it doesn't explain in which terms it is significant. So I guess sometimes it can be difficult to determine.

Do you mean A piece of cake? If we can't conquer Vanuatu we'll have to move it to the group of unconquerables, like we did with Seychelles. In this case however the connection is not so weak (not only locations but also native language and cast). IMDb includes Vanuatu as second country although it is also true that the only production company listed is Australian. Wikipedia also says it is a coproduction and refers to the Adelaide Film Festival but the link is broken so I cannot verify it. Mario, did you see any reference to Vanuatuan funding (perhaps from public institutions) in the credit titles of the film?

Yeah I know that but we can't conquer Vanuatu otherwise since their only ever film (produced a few years ago) is unavailable.
Do you mean A piece of cake? If we can't conquer Vanuatu we'll have to move it to the group of unconquerables, like we did with Seychelles. In this case however the connection is not so weak (not only locations but also native language and cast). IMDb includes Vanuatu as second country although it is also true that the only production company listed is Australian. Wikipedia also says it is a coproduction and refers to the Adelaide Film Festival but the link is broken so I cannot verify it. Mario, did you see any reference to Vanuatuan funding (perhaps from public institutions) in the credit titles of the film?
Frankly I didn't look closely since I presumed being listed as production country on IMDb is a Holy Bible to you.

Yes, A Piece of the Cake is the very first and so far only genuine Vanuatuan film so far.

OK, I'll assume that Vanuatu had a share of it although minor. The fact that a country, Australia in this case, selects a film for the Oscars doesn't mean that the rest of coproducing countries are negligible. I have two recent cases in mind: Mustang (selected by France, could have probably been submitted by Turkey instead: also coproducer, director born in Ankara, Turkish language, setting) and Mandariinid (pretty musch the same with Estonia and Georgia).

NORTH KOREA Han nyeohaksaengeui ilgi (Hak Jang, 2007) - Pervaded by an innocence feeling that reminded me some old anime for children, it teaches the importance of putting the interests of the nation before those of the family (or one’s own) following, obviously, the example of “our Dear General”; not a remarkable film but worth watching as a curio (and that scene with some women trying to put out a short circuit shot in slow motion). 6/10

Duris and Paradis are good, with Duris getting a good balance between his character's sleaziness and likeability, but it's all in service of a generic romantic comedy that is lacking in humour. It started off well at least.

Well, colour me impressed.

If I get some time over the next couple of days, I'll try to reassess the ~50 unconquered countries remaining. I suspect some of them might be more appropriately placed in the unconquerable pile, and if we are able to do that, we might actually be able to conquer the entire conquerable world between us this month. :D

You'd already checked East Germany with Sterne (1959) at 51. So 56 is a duplicate I have to discard. Hope it was at least a good watch.

Well, colour me impressed.

If I get some time over the next couple of days, I'll try to reassess the ~50 unconquered countries remaining. I suspect some of them might be more appropriately placed in the unconquerable pile, and if we are able to do that, we might actually be able to conquer the entire conquerable world between us this month. :D
This is probably my first contact with North Korean cinema but from the basic search I did trying to find something to watch I'd say it was one of the least difficult targets from our remaining 50 unconquered countries. This one has even been released on DVD by Pretty Pictures in France.

As for the reassessment, I was about to ask for some help to do that. More experienced world cinema watchers and advanced participants in the ongoing version of this challenge are probably already aware of the attainability of many of those exotic countries. So suggestions are welcome.

Duris and Paradis are good, with Duris getting a good balance between his character's sleaziness and likeability, but it's all in service of a generic romantic comedy that is lacking in humour. It started off well at least.
4/10
Except some scenes shot in Monaco, I am afraid everything is French in this movie: production, director, actors,...

I have tried all the French territories left (Guadeloupe, Réunion, French Guiana, French Polynesia, New Caledonia), which are all fully France btw, there is no stuff that qualifies (ie with directors born from these territories) or I could find unfortunately.
I couldn't find some interesting picks for Central African Republic, Namibia and Benin either (not that it is impossible).
With the time left over the break I may give a try to a couple more but that is it for me I think. Qatar should be doable with all the Al Jazeera docs.

Duris and Paradis are good, with Duris getting a good balance between his character's sleaziness and likeability, but it's all in service of a generic romantic comedy that is lacking in humour. It started off well at least.
4/10
Except some scenes shot in Monaco, I am afraid everything is French in this movie: production, director, actors,...
Given that Monaco is a large town tax haven inside France, I think this is as close as it's possible to get to a Monacan film. And it's not just a few scenes filmed in Monaco:
apart from the first 20 minutes, the film seems to be almost entirely on location in Monaco. It's also listed as a Monaco co-production everywhere, including on IMDb which is what we're going by.

I've got a 100% Monegasque film on my HD, but it's dubbed in Spanish and I still dunno how to upload it to KG - always says something's wrong.
Also I can't speak French either, so original version couldn't help either if I'd try to make English subtitles.

You'd already checked East Germany with Sterne (1959) at 51. So 56 is a duplicate I have to discard. Hope it was at least a good watch.
Oh, right. Sorry, I have just been watching a long playlist in Plex and I guess somehow I didn't notice.
