    EUROPEAN FILM TOURNAMENT

    Might as well finish off a World Cinema Trilogy

    Theatrical Releases only

    European films only (British films are excluded from this one)

    Joint Euro/US productions do not qualify

    I’ve started us out with 50 films but I think we can make 128 fairly easily.

    Everyone has 2 Automatics, 12 nominations, seconds & thirds.

    Keep in mind that obscure films that don’t get enough votes will get tossed so choose wisely.

    I hope i understand this properly (i've picked 12 nominations/2nds)

    Automatic;
    Alice in the Cities
    The Green Ray

    Nominate;
    Persona
    Pierrot le Fou
    Kings of the Road
    Celine and Julie go Boating
    Mirror
    Spirit of the Beehive
    Partie de Campagne
    Eternity and a Day

    Second;
    Man with a Movie Camera
    Metropolis
    Aguirre Wrath of God
    Alexander Nevsky

    (i'd have liked to nominate/auto Abraham Valley by the great Portuguese Manoel de Oliveira- well in his 90's, as prolific as ever-, but i guess it's too obscure for support!).

    Does The Colour of Pomegranates (Armenia) qualify?

    I presume someone else will 2nd La Regle du Jeu, so i'll risk its absence to make space for other nominees.

    M. Hulot’s Holiday
    L’Atalante
    Three Colors: White
    The Red Desert
    La Dolce Vita


    And third:

    Jules and Jim

    John,

    Welcome to the tourney.

    As Simon pointed out it's 12 of each & the films on the Master List are already in so there's no need to second & third any of them.

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being is not a European film so I'm tossing it.

    Since I automaticed Cobra Verde, and Steve automaticed Kasper Hauser, and there were already 2 Herzogs in there, does that mean that Brook's Stroszek automatic doesn't count?

    It seems i completely goofed, and must have been blind to boot- all 12 of my nominations are in fact 2nds and 3rds or on the master list!! That takes some doing. Jim obviously has good taste. And i didn't even spot Alice in the Cities and The Green Ray (which i thought would miss out otherwise) on the Master List; great calls anyway!

    If this means i'm allowed new nominations;

    AUTO
    The Colour of Pomegranates
    Abraham Valley

    NOMINATIONS
    Orphée (don't think i missed it elsewhere)
    Rosetta
    Ulysses' Gaze
    Claire's Knee
    Senso
    Hiroshima mon Amour
    Madame de
    Casque d'Or
    Night of the Shooting Stars
    The Gospel according to St Matthew
    Madchen in Uniform
    The Chess Player (neglected silent)

    If i'm not allowed, or this complicates things- then ignore them!

    John,

    I updated my first post with everyones auto's, noms, etc. Sorry if that threw you off.

    You do have 4 Nominations left.
    0 autos
    & you still have 12 each of 2nd's & 3rd's as the ones you used were already in.

    As for the 4 Director rule it looks like thats out the door as it's going to be too hard for me to police.

    My intentions were for a more even playing field rather then having a lopsided Godard, Truffaut, Bergman, Fellini, Bunuel, film tournament. Looks like there's no way of stopping it though.
