I understand. Armo's posts have annoyed me for years. We're ranking the titles, not just posting ratings. A numbered list should be mandatory. :folded:

1. Wrony
2. Labour of Love

Nice picks -- very similar ratings for me. Good ending in the Indian film. Maybe if it was the length of Wrony, or a bit shorter, it would've won the match-up for me.

This was a close one, both films were beautifully shot but neither grabbed me or made much of an impression.

1. Asha Jaoar Majhe 6/10
2. Wrony 6/10

Watched Crows a few years ago, I think it was FOTW or some other promotion here. Didn't feel the need to rewatch it after seeing Labour of Love (and how uncompetitive this match appears to be). It was cute and enjoyable, and I rated it a 7.4. I might have included it at the tail end of my <400 ballot, or I might have culled it this year.

Labour of Love was better than expected for a slow-moving dialogless film. The cinematography and sound design kept grabbing me when the story was lagging, and I found myself being drawn in to it when I least expected. Some of my favourite images are when the woman is unpacking the groceries and pouring all the food into containers, and filming the man at work through the printing press. There's not much to the story, but I liked the way it came together in the end with a little slice of their own personal heaven.

1. Asha Jaoar Majhe - 7.6ish
2. Wrony - 7.4
