I've already watched Vedreba, Ellipathayam and Al primo soffio di vento. The one I recall the most vividly is Vedreba. The Piavoli is not my favorite of his but it might be good enough vs. a 1957 German film. We'll see! I'm pretty excited about this round and relieved to have to watch only one new film during the next three matches

Unless those camels harbor an ace up their humps, it's a Sakartvelo semifinal.

You were right. One doesn't just mess with the animals and not expect to be beaten.
