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 = Feb 6th
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.
Here's a quick summary of how the tournament works
We start with 48 films from 48 countries. Each country has a manager who determines which movie will be watched. In the first round the countries are divided into 12 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 24 remaining countries will be divided into 8 groups of 3. The managers pick a new movie. The winner of each group proceeds to the next round. The final 8 countries compete one-on-one in the quarter finals (with a new movie of course) and so on till the final.

01 - Kawaita Hana

02 - Sia, le reve du python

I highly doubt any film from Burkina Faso would have a chance against Pale Flower.

Films like Pale Flower shouldn't be allowed to compete.

Well so far it looks like it's going to be a match anyway.

There's no filter on iCM that says "films like Pale Flower", so we can't make this a rule. :P

I meant it just for me personally because I love the film and most of the director's work.

...even though it sounds like I was referring to the match.

1. Kawaita hana 乾いた鼻 AKA Pale Flower (1964) - Masahiro Shinoda [re-watch]
2. Sia, le rêve du python AKA Sia, the Dream of the Python (2001) - Dani Kouyate

Good selections for this match!
I had previously seen Keita! L'heritage du griot from Dani Kouyate, and I think Sia is a much better film. I was not expecting it to be competitive but was pleasantly surprised.

Haven't seen the two films in the next match, but so far Kawaita hana is the best film of the quarter final.

Easy picking, Pale Flowers is the best (so far) of the quarter finalists, Sia the least.

Really good choice for Burkina Faso, I liked it a good deal. But the Japanese film was just too strong.
Excellent stuff there, one of the best films of this whole WC edition for me. Nice blend of late film noir, Jap new wave and that existential angst they did around that time.

Think I'll skip this round unless someone says something convincing about the BF entry (30 checks and no faves...). Pale Flower is one of my favorite films and I don't think my vote will matter anyway, so.
