- The winners of the match is the movie with the most #1-votes.
- The winner of each match will proceed to the final.
- If there's a tie the match will have a 3 day extension. If there's still a tie then, the next voter decides by sudden death.

I've seen 3/4 already. Rated two of them 9/10. :o

Only need to see the Estonian movie, but I doubt it can beat Unter den Brücken.

3 500<400 movies (and I voted for all of them). We finally managed to get Labour of Love on the list and it immediately gets extra promotion :D
Current recommendation: Monday (2000)

Unlucky Eesti with Deutsch going all out but it just gets my vote.
Asha Jaoar Majhe to watch.

Why couldn't you match Bharat with Eesti, Joachim? That could've been a race on both sides.
he or A. or Armo or any

I did the draw randomly before I knew any of the nominated movies.

Yeah it's not your fault. It's only fair that the best film countries get an easier draw.
Fairness is better than putting on a show.
