Welcome to the schedule of iCM Forum World Cup - Season 4 - Semi Finals.
If you don't know what this is, you can find everything about the World Cup here.

Rules in this round:
- You must watch both films of a match before you vote.
- To vote, rank the films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)
- 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.
- Don't vote in this thread. Each match will have its own thread according to the schedule.

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: Batch '81 (1982)

Current focus: Complete ICMFF (20/46, starting at 2), 1000<400

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.

I have one from each match to watch. Both the ones I have to see look good.
