Voting Rules:
- You must watch all 4 films before you vote.
- To vote, rank the 4 films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)

Voting deadline = May 13th
Countdown till deadline

The countries that end at 1st and 2nd place proceed to the next round. The ranking of the match will be decided using these rules:
- Ranked by lowest average ranking.
- In case of a tie between two movies, head-to-head determines the winner (how many people thought A>B and how many thought B>A).
- In case there's still a tie after the previous rule or there is a tie between three or four movies, most #1-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? Fewest #4-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? The match will have a 3 day extension (except when the tie is only between #3 and #4).

Here's a quick summary of how the tournament works

Take a look at the screenshot of La casa del ángel. Is that really the best copy available?

Best group so far, and the second best overall. Had only seen Ice Cold in Alex before and I thought it would be a clear number one for me. But Tou ze was so good, and the performance from Deannie Yip was absolutely amazing

1. Tou ze 9/10
2. Ice Cold in Alex 9/10
3. Ritzar bez bronya 7/10
4. La casa del ángel 6/10

Good choices y’all!

Believe or not it's a DVDRip. There is a TDTRip with slightly higher resolution

Spoiler: click to toggle


Re-sync subs would be necessary, though.

That looks significantly better, not just the resolution but that it doesn't look like you're watching through a dirty smeared window.

The kid in Ritzar bez bronya looks so familiar to me, but I can't figure out what movie he reminds me of. I haven't seen any of his other credits on IMDb.

Got it! Looks a lot like the kid in Cinema Paradiso.

Ice Cold in Alex - a nice addition to the "Truck of Death" films like Wages of Fear, Sorcerer, that Syrian WC movie and Mad Max Fury Road. Solid 8

this must be my first 4-way match one with no drops below the good ol 6
also only had to watch 2 and a half hours (2 movies), probably the shortest round for me

Ice Cold In Alex 8
Ritzar bez bronya 7
La casa del Angel 6+
too bad about the subs. dissimulate? had to look that up! also some lines were not translated so I made use of the russian translation (could've updated the subs with it). fixed some typos as usual.
Tou ze 6
