Movie World Cup Fever is upon us, and we’re celebrating by getting shin guard deep into a massive competition that honors the cinema of each country in the Cup. For our weekly foreign film coverage, check out Foreign Objects, but stay tuned to our Movie World Cup for the next week and half as we need you to decide the winners.
In the underdog match of the day, Ivory Coast and Portugal (two countries not known for the strength of number of films they put out each year) go head to head, ensuring the possibility of surprises in Round Two. The sweaty reality of Adanggaman tries its luck against the high-intensity crime of Os Imortais. Stirring, visceral drama up against the best film to come out of Portugal maybe ever. It’s anyone’s ball game at this point, so the winner will depend heavily on which country (and which fans) show up to make their voices heard. For those who haven’t seen them, they’re both great films that deserve a spot on your rental queue.
