1. Ruka
2. Thithi
3. Miejsce urodzenia

The latter an obvious source of inspiration for Pokłosie/Aftermath (Władysław Pasikowski, 2012). ;)

Little less than two days left. Although Poland is still clearly in the lead, the gap is getting closer. And India isn't 3rd place anymore.

Really good round. I like to see some docus and even a short among the selection. Good stuff, managers. Close between all three films, that all brought very interesting things to the table.

1. Miejsce urodzenia - 7.5
2. Thithi - 7
3. Ruka - 7

1. Thithi [Funeral] - 7.8
2. Ruka [The Hand] - 7.8
3. Miejsce urodzenia [Birthplace] - 6.8

Saw Ruka a few years ago, no need to rewatch. Fun entertaining short.

Really liked Thithi, good mix of comedy and drama. Another great example of contemporary Indian cinema.

Birthplace was rather middling to me. Interesting premise, but the short run time and not-so-compelling execution didn't do much for me. It felt so haphazard and casual that it was almost disrespectful to the man and his family and what they had gone through. I feel like his story deserved a better movie. I did find it fascinating how after 50 years people could still be so reticent (mind you, they'd just thrown off the shackles of communism and the Soviet occupation, so I suppose there was still plenty of distrust and uncertainty going around).

Very good round, and it's really hard to make the decision. Thithi was the only one made me laugh, and I liked their humor in small villages.
I think both Miejsce urodzenia and Shoah were good documentaries of the Holocaust from different perspectives.

Nice bounce back from the short to leave the only feature film although tied but relegated to last after tie break.

currently working thru such film lists (besides TV): 2010s bests, RW Fassbinder, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Luis Bunuel, Yasujiro Ozu, Eric Rohmer, Visual Effects nominees, kid-related stuff, great animes (mini-serie or feature), very 80s movies, 17+ sci-fi lists on watchlist, ENVIRO, remarkable Silent Films and Pre-Code (exploring 1925 atm) and every shorts and docu list I'm aware of and
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1434
and "Gordon" Liu Chia-Hui/Liu Chia-Liang and Yuen Woo-ping and "Sammo" Hung Kam-bo

Shots of zubrowka for all that voted for Poland.

Angry diatribes from my mother about why your race/ethnicity/sexual preferences/etc are ruining the world for those who didn't.

The troubles of a young father. Too much on your mind. ;)

Mostly due to my new job (for half a year, in-company), I think. I have many more responsibilities now, which really costs tons of energy. But I'm enjoying it. :)

Similar to the final result: Poland, Czech Republic, India. :)
Rating-wise 9/10, 8.5/10, 7.5/10, something like that. Very good round indeed.
