Welcome to the iCM Forum World Cup, season 2, Semi Finals! This is a tournament where we start with 48 countries, and they get eliminated until one country wins. There are 5 rounds and each round the winning films get replaced with other films from the same country. In the first round the countries fought each other in groups of three. From then on each match will be just one on one.

These are the countries that won their match in the Quarter Finals


The managers who won their match can pick a movie for the semi-finals.
Rules for picking a movie:
- Maximum runtime = 180 minutes
- Less than 1000 checks on ICM when you select it
- In the whole tournament a director can't be chosen multiple times for the same country
- No movies that competed in the first season: ICM-list

All movies in season 2
World Cup Index

Only use this thread for recommendations and discussion. Nominations will be done secretly. Send me a PM with your choice. Please include an IMDB- or ICM-link. The schedule and movies will be revealed after the deadline.

Countdown till the deadline

Picks like that (as well as guilty pleasures & comedies of tricky acceptance) are for the 3rd place match, since it doesn't decide much. Not now when one is close to the championship title. -_-

:think:

Let me see... So far I've chosen:

- Group stage: Vittorio Gassman, 1962
- 2nd round: Stefania Sandrelli, 1965
- QFs: Marcello Mastroianni, 1963

So now it is turn for a female star in a film from 1961 or 1964.

I'll need all the time I can get as there are so many Spanish sex comedies I'd like for you guys to see - really hard to just pick one.
