Voting Rules:
- You must watch both films before you vote.
- To vote, post which of the two movies is your favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)

Voting deadline = Nov 5th
Countdown till deadline

The country that ends at 1st place proceeds to the next round. The ranking of the match will be decided using these rules:
- Movie with most votes wins.
- In case of a tie the match will have a 3 day extension.
- In case there's still a tie then, the next voter decides by sudden death.
Here's a quick summary of how the tournament works
We start with 32 films from 32 countries. Each country has a manager who determines which movie will be watched. In the first round the countries are divided into 8 groups of 4. From each group the countries that end up at #1 and #2 proceed to the next round. In the 2nd round the 16 remaining countries will be divided into 8 matches of 2. The managers pick a new movie. The winner of each match proceeds to the next round. This continues till the final.

I loved Wrony when I watched it years ago. I wasn't impressed by Asha Jaoar Majhe.

Is Wrony OP despite having lower rating? It's not a favorite for me. If Hindu movie gets 7/10, I'll vote for it.

1. Asha Jaoar Majhe 8+
2. Wrony 8

I can see Labour of Love being more divise so it will have a hard time against such a strong opponent. But I hope it will find a couple new fans on the way, it deserves it.
Current recommendation: Monday (2000)

Too bad for the Indian film... It started strongly for me, with a consept that was interesting and great visuals that made me happy. But it didn't really go anywhere and I started getting bored. I gave it a 6 for the visuals and the idea, but the final product was flawed...

Not sure if you're joking or if you really didn't realize that was the score so far for the first 8 votes. My personal vote is in the 2nd post of this thread. :unsure:

I am always happy when someone finds a film he loves so much that he gives it a ten! This is why we watch films! To find those that really deserve the 10/10. Even if this isn't the score he gave... :lol: :lol: :lol:
