#EUFFCountdown ANSWER NUMBER 2 & 5
Monday, 20 October 2014
Congratulations to Vicki Mavraganis and Anna Iwinska who correctly guessed the SECOND film Christmas Tango and FIFTH film Road North of the #EUFFCountdown! They have won two free tickets to a night of the Festival, held November 13 - 30, 2014. Check back soon, when we'll announce the next film in the contest. With many more films to announce, there are plenty more chances to win!
 
Directed by Nikos Koutelidakis, and based on the novel by Yannis Xanthoulis, Christmas Tango, explores the intersection of four lives: an introverted soldier; a harsh lieutenant; a strict colonel; and the colonel's wife, after a sensual tango at a Christmas celebration at an army camp. Christmas Tango, the ultimate dramatic tale of unrequited love set against the political back drop of the Greek military junta (1967–1974), won Best Music, best Production Design and Best Costume Design at the 2012 Hellenic Film Acadamy Awards.

Learn more about To tango ton Hristougennon (Christmas Tango) at the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).



Road North is a dramatic comedy by Finnish director Mika Kaurismäki that focuses on the trials and tribulations of Timo, an esteemed concert pianist whose personal life is on the rocks. One day, Leo, his estranged father of 35 years, appears at his door. Leo has returned to hand over a rather mysterious legacy to his son and answer questions regarding the past, and the two embark on a trip together, hitting the road north. What starts out as a comical and quirky clash of personalities ends up as an emotional revelation, and the two men inadvertently help each other come to terms with their own failings.
