Voting Rules:
- You must watch all 4 films before you vote.
- To vote, rank the 4 films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)

Voting deadline = Aug 8th
Countdown till deadline

The countries that end at 1st and 2nd place proceed to the next round. The ranking of the match will be decided using these rules:
- Ranked by lowest average ranking.
- In case of a tie between two movies, head-to-head determines the winner (how many people thought A>B and how many thought B>A).
- In case there's still a tie after the previous rule or there is a tie between three or four movies, most #1-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? Fewest #4-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? The match will have a 3 day extension (except when the tie is only between #3 and #4).
Here's a quick summary of how the tournament worksShow
We start with 48 films from 48 countries. Each country has a manager who determines which movie will be watched. In the first round the countries are divided into 12 groups of 4. From each group the countries that end up at #1 and #2 proceed to the next round. In the 2nd round the 24 remaining countries will be divided into 8 groups of 3. The managers pick a new movie. The winner of each group proceeds to the next round. The final 8 countries compete one-on-one in the quarter finals (with a new movie of course) and so on till the final.

I'll be on vacation for the last 10 days of this match. I won't be here for the final result. Mario, can you keep track of the scores (as you always do) and declare the winners after the deadline?

Btw, this is the last match of round 1. I'll start a round 2 preparation thread this weekend.

Expectation:
Looks like I should be prepared to lose this one.
I rated the 2 movies I've seen already the same, but will obviously vote for my submission.
Expecting Germany to be my #1 pick. Will Dominicana be a surprise and make this my fav round? Let's see and find out.

Hats off to Canada and Dominican Republic, two excellent films and although I am happy about my selection for Germany I have to vote my own pick #3 here!

Unfortunately the Austrian pick was a dislike for me. :/

2. Les bons débarras

Technically speaking, this time it's East Germany competing and not the scandalous Western counterpart. :folded:

1. Jean Gentil - 8,5
2. Ich war neunzehn - 8,5
3. Les bons débarras - 7,8
4. Das finstere Tal - 6,5

Jean Gentil is the biggest discovery of the world Cup for me so far! Very different than I had expected, almost something Tsai Ming-Liang could have done (but completely different of course).

Also the second match in a row where my scores are 8.5, 8.5 and 7.8! This first round is finishing on a very strong note!!

I had a few favourites from this season so far, but all except one were stuff I've already seen. This round alone gave me 2 new favourites. Great round.

1. Ich war neunzehn (1968)
2. Jean Gentil (2010)
3. Les bons débarras [Good Riddance] (1980)
4. Das finstere Tal [The Dark Valley] (2014)

Austria is doing very poorly. Out of 11 voters it had 3 #1-votes, but 7 #4-votes.

Switzerland's team brought Turkish players.
Germany's team brought Russian players, I see.

I honestly didn't expect my choice to be so divisive. Of course it's a genre film, and they tend to polarize a bit more, but I didn't expect by such a margin.
But there are a lot of votes still missing, so I'm really interested in how this will go on.

Germany has never made it out of R1, btw.
That may explain the need to naturalize some russians tehe
