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 = Dec 1st
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 worksShow
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.

1. Die Brücke
2. Czlowiek na torze

I didn't really click with any of the movies. The battle scenes in Die Brücke were nice though, I'll give Germany the edge

1. Die Brücke 7/10
2. Czlowiek na torze 5/10

I enjoyed Die Brücke. Czlowiek na torze is somewhere between a 5/10 and 6/10 for me but I'll round down because the movie was just okay.

And it looks like a fairly even match as well. I thought Die Brücke would win easy.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Estonia must have collaborated with the powerful Nazis. Match ended before Stalingrad.
