1. My Way Home
2. Suzaki Paradise

Both good films, actually gave them both identical rating on Criticker/IMDB. Given My Way Home the edge as it's stuck with me a bit more.

I liked the friendship between the boys in ═gy j÷ttem. The Japanese movie had some strong female characters, which is nice for a change. :thumbsup:

Strong round with two really good films. I think I have to wait a few days until I can make a decision between those two, because right now I can't.

Strong and complex characters in Suzaki while I feel like the Hungarian film never let me in. Well crafted but I think I have to watch it again to get much out of it. SzegÚnylegÚnyek had more meat to it on the first watch.

1. Suzaki Paradaisu: Akashing˘ - 8/10

I enjoyed Suzaki Paradaisu: Akashing˘. ═gy j÷ttem was nice on the eyes, but I preferred the storyline of the other film.

the Eng translation from Rus is inaccurate in too many places, e.g.

"I'll kill you" supposed to be "I get shot"

Suzaki Paradise - 6.8

Good film. Slightly reminded me of One Wonderful Sunday and Floating Clouds.

Liked them both, but My Way Home was very close to a favorite for me--and still might become one. Great movie.

1. Susaki Paradise: Red Light District (1956)
2. My Way Home (1965)

Susaki Paradise is an excellent film, realistic and well-directed by Kawashima. I can not understand the disproportionate reputation of his The Sun Legend in the Last Days of the Shogunate though, which I found grotesque and almost ridiculous.
My Way Home is one of the earlier and least annoying films directed by Jancsˇ. I really dislike Jancsˇ's style and school, but here at least there are still well developed characters (even close-ups!) before the takes became longer and the choreography became overwhelming.

Good match. We'll see the final. :thumbsup:

So, I have a bit of distance to viewing those two and have made up my mind a little bit. Still brutally close between those two splendid films.

1. Suzaki Paradaisu: Akashing˘ / Suzaki Paradise Red Light
2. ═gy j÷ttem / My Way Home

Quick scribblings:

Suzaki Paradaisu: Akashing˘ / Suzaki Paradise Red Light (1956, Yűz˘ Kawashima)
Strong drama about a poor young couple down on their luck. The girl is a former prostitute and on the brink of picking up her old ways and that wears on their relationship. Well layered, morally complex and with good characters.
8/10

═gy j÷ttem / My Way Home (1965, Miklˇs Jancsˇ)
In Hungary, a young lad becomes a Russian prisoner and gets sent to aid a young Russian soldier hearding some cows in a quite soliitary location. A friendship develops between those two that makes the Hungarian doubt about his own situation. Execellent war drama that is thought provoking, playful and with a strong humanitarian message.
8/10

I liked Sun Legend more than Suzaki Paradise, but I don't think either of them deserve a spot in the top 20.

Kawashima's The Graceful Brute is also good. I think I liked it a little bit more than Sun Legend. More people should watch it.

They haven't been revealed. I thought we would start the final a couple of days before this one ends, because that's what we did each round. So I think the match should start today.

1. My Way Home - My first Jansco. Awesome cinematography and gorgeous landscape. Sound design is also good.
2. Suzaki Paradise - As I said earlier, a good film. Didn't really find any fault but nothing special either.

If your first Jancso experience was good, go ahead and watch some more. I've seen four by him and rated them all 9/10. :wub:

For the first time this match Hungary is in the lead. This happened so often in the WC. One moment you think one country is taking a clear lead, the next moment the other one is coming back fast. Full of surprises!

I think there might be a difference in taste between early and late voters. :D
