Here are the results as an icm list: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icm+ ... genaprido/
Here is the master list with the top 20 from each poll: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icm+ ... genaprido/

Our last German Forum Poll was held in October 2018, and was for films from German-speaking countries, so includes Swiss and Austrian films. The lists are similar, but different enough with some striking omissions given the restrictions.

The Host's Hot Take
I think we banged out a fairly solid list. 100 films made the final list, roughly on par with the USA and France, speaking to the plethora of German films to choose from. The Top 15 aren't that different from our last poll, and one Lang film beat the other for the top spot.

Next up: New Zealand results, and then Brazil results.

(l) Cool, results!

Looks like I've missed 38 from the whole list - most from the bottom half as I only have 10 unseen from the top 50. Many of those 38 from Fassbinder, unsurprisingly - I keep putting off going through his filmography, maybe my own life is too miserable to wallow in his :lol: Anyway no real surprises up near the top. Glad to see Cloud Atlas do as well as it did; have to take a look at a few of the 0 or 1-list films lower down that I've never heard of, though there are only a couple.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Too many characters to include in the other posts.

Here are the East German films that were nominated for this poll, 4 of which made the Top 100.

Thanks for the results. I have seen 90/100 and 12 of my own 20 suggestions made the Top 100.

Hghest unseen (for my GDR-list obviously): Das Beil von Wandsbek|The Axe of Wandsbek
And I'm surprised not to see Western (Grisebach), I was apparantly the only one to include it, nor Heimat in the Top 100...

It's a nice list. I've seen 16 of the top 20 with two others in my queue to possibly watch later this month. I've also seen 34/100, but hope to explore more.

From my nominees, 8 films made the top 20 and 15 made the list. 4 of my Honorable Mentions made the top 20 and all 5 made the list.

Yeah, neither Heimat did well here, surprisingly. And yes, your ballot was the only one with Western.

Seen 11 films (11%), which is higher than Australia (9.3%) proportionally, but lower than Ireland (15.15%), France, UK (both around 18%) & USA (43%) proportionally. Definitely some work to do or catching up to do here.

Seen: 11/100 (11.00%)
Highest unchecked: Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (#2) actually quite interested in this one, so should watch it soon. Already saw 5 Herzog films, so this would bring it to 6 and Fitzcarraldo to 7 because i've seen none of the Herzog films in this list
Number of favorites: 7/11
Highest favorite: M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder (#1)
Number of dislikes: 1/11
Highest dislike: Toni Erdmann (#35)

Thanks for the result

Thanks for getting the results! Glad you finally got all the stuff you needed sorted. Excited to see the upcoming countries' results :)

Here are some films from my ballot that don't seem to have been as widely seen:

The Fair https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053996/
Knife in the Head https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077924/
Marseille (or other Angela Schanelec) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0360779/
Part-Time Work of a Domestic Slave https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070098/

Part-Time Work of a Domestic Slave https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070098/
Here's how those films did (plus the only other Schanelec nominated):

162 Kirmes [The Fair] 1960 Wolfgang Staudte 14 1 7 :imdb: 153 :ICM: 7 0

307 Gelegenheitsarbeit einer Sklavin [Part-Time Work of a Domestic Slave] 1973 Alexander Kluge 3 1 18 :imdb: 314 :ICM: 90 1


I saw my first Shanelec, Passing Summer, last year but I wasn't too impressed by it (6.4/10). Been aware of her for a while but nothing really piques my interest. Any recommendations?
And given how much I didn't like Yesterday Girl (5.0/10), I won't be prioritizing Kluge's Part-Time Work any time soon. :/
Staudte I'm warmer to (I gave Murderers Are Among Us 7.6/10) but I have some of his other films watchlisted already (starting with Man of Straw).

I think Marseille is my favourite of hers so I'd maybe go with that one or Places in Cities. With the other directors these were my first films from them so I don't have any particular impressions of their other work, but I am very keen to check them out.

Oh, you mean the Top 20? For me, this Top 100 is the main list for Germany. The Top 20 is just where I drew the line for the compilation list for all countries. :)

Yeah, I meant the top 20. In that case, I'm happy they both made the main list :D
