Hopefully nothing too serious, but the article didn't sound too encouraging.

Really dislike most "filmed theatre" aesthetics so Paviljon VI didn't stand much of a chance in winning the group for me because of that, but otherwise a good film and a good group. Saw Dabba in the cinema which probably helped that one.

Fair enough, but I'd say it was the dialogue that resembles theatre, not scenography or camera movements. Which was a tremendous plus for me, rather than minus for most people here obviously.
In that sense, you could say The Satin Slipper or Dogville are even lesser films.

An overall good round. Even the lower placed film would have placed high in other rounds. So a shoutoud to the managers on good selections.

1. Dabba (2013, Ritesh Batra) 8/10
A lonely wife and bitter official before retirement bond and strengthen each other over notes left in a displaced lunchbox. Just an overall strongly made film.

2. Yeelen (1987, Souleymane Cissé) 7.5/10
I had seen this one before. And the distinct fanatstical journey still sticks well with me after some years.

3. Une si jolie petite plage (1949, Yves Allégret) 7/10
A young guy returns to his hometown, where he was raised in hard conditions as an orphan only to see the shitty cycle of life continues on and on. Beautifully shot.

4. Paviljon VI (1978, Lucian Pintilie) 7/10
A psychatrist with philosphical musings sees his own philosphy put to the test as he starts to lose his own mind and becoming a patient. A bit wordy and it would lend itself way better to the page as either a play or a novel, it was still a good narrative, that reminded me of Dostoevsky.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Didn't you realize it actually IS a literary material first and foremost? :huh:

I didn't KNOW that, as I like to go into films as completely blind and unknoing what to expect as possible. But I'm not surprised at all.

As predicted, group of death :pinch:

Mali - Yeelen - My pick. It's not the type of film I would usually enjoy, but somehow this whimsical tale carried me along with it. Is there an African companion genre of magical realism to go along the established traditions in Latin America and Eastern Europe? Mali's been on my list of "intriguing countries that I want to explore more of" for a while, and this film intensified my desire to see more films from this oft neglected country.

France - Such a Pretty Little Beach - Such a pretty little film, but it felt hollow. So many loose ends and things left unsaid or unexplained. I don't need everything spelled out for me, but I do like a sense of narrative purpose. The cinematography and production design make up for what is lacking in character development and nuance.

India - The Lunchbox - Another anticipated film that I placed in the same category as Ship of Theseus and Court, both of which I immensely enjoyed. This film let me down. It kept alternating between trying to be a comedy, then a drama, without fully embracing either, and as a dramedy it fell flat for me. The most interesting character was Shaikh; the others felt underdeveloped. Wish I could have enjoyed this more.

Serbia - Ward Six - I fell asleep thrice in the first 30 minutes. This is not a film for me. Maybe an interesting concept to read about in the original short story (key word: short), but utterly boring for a 90-minute filmed conversation on philosophical chatter. I get the point of the film; I'm simply disinterested in it.

1. MLI - Yeelen - 7.6
2. FRA - Une si jolie petite plage - 7.6
3. IND - Dabba - 7.4
4. SRB - Paviljon VI - 3-4ish

Dabba and Yeelen are 9 wins apart now. Would be hard for Yeelen to catch up in the last half a day. 40 voters now, so there are probably be a few more voters coming up (other matches had 47, 43 and 42 voters).

Pitiful is a person who ranks Splash Splash Love ahead of Ward Six. -_-

Would you call 12 Angry Men to be nothing more than a philosophical chatter? As I recall there isn't much beyond that.
