  • Agent Keller lost his wife in the recent past, Silvia experiences the difficult fate of her homeland, and together they may find long-awaited solace
  • Too bad Motobo and its Ku -speaking inhabitants are as much a setting as the heroine's profession
  • There's not much to complain about in the film, except for a couple of dragged-out episodes and a bummer with the romance line (so wanted a little more than what was shown)
  • I especially liked the epigraph to the book by the dictator of Motoba country, which Nicole Kidman made him read

    Have you ever suffered from knowing your mother language? Silvia Broome (Kidman), a translator working at the U.N. headquarters, witnesses a conspiracy in the language of the small African country where she was born. And, as luck would have it, she understands everything.
  • The Interpreter, movie (2005)
  • A federal agent, Tobin Keller (Penn), is assigned to her, first to protect her, then perhaps to protect her from it. Silvia’s past hides a secret that makes her sympathetic to the conspirators. The tangle of intrigue unravels not without bloody incidents, and the main threat looms unnoticed.

    In parallel, the undercurrent of the film develops: Agent Keller lost his wife in the recent past, Silvia experiences the difficult fate of her homeland, and together they may find long-awaited solace.

  • “The Interpreter” is an Oscar-winning constellation. Sydney Pollack grabbed seven Oscars for “Out of Africa” (1985), including Best Director and Best Picture. Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn won well-deserved Oscars in 2003 for their roles in Stephen Daldry’s “The Hours” and Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River,” respectively.

    The high class of the actors immediately catches the eye. In the star, the duo looks particularly textured Sean Penn, in a single image of combining a cold-blooded gendarme and a deeply unhappy man. Sidney Pollack is very faithful to himself: in the best, but the long-faded tradition of political thriller, the movie keeps you in suspense till the last frame and instantly lets you go after.

  • “The Interpreter” is the first picture ever shot at a real UN headquarters. But it wasn’t enough countries in the UN for the story, so screenwriter Charles Randolph came up with the Motobo State, a perfect “black hole”, a citadel of corruption and decadence.

    The conception was crowned with the creation of a new language, CG, which Nicole Kidman had to learn to speak fluently. Too bad Motobo and its “Ku”-speaking inhabitants are as much a setting as the heroine’s profession.

  • There’s not much to complain about in the film, except for a couple of dragged-out episodes and a bummer with the romance line (so wanted a little more than what was shown). Otherwise, a solidly made product with all the usual and beloved “fads” adhered to. One scene with Nicole on the verge of a breakdown at the end is worth a damn!

    I do not understand who could not like this movie? If you want action - watch “Terminator 3″, “War of the Worlds” and the like trash. If you want horror, watch “Hannibal.” And for the real fans of quality movies, this movie is just fine. This movie is a kind of mix, a political thriller, drama, and psychological genre.

  • I especially liked the epigraph to the book by the dictator of Motoba country, which Nicole Kidman made him read. The words are amazing: the truth, spoken in a whisper, will be heard even in the noise of the crowd.

  • It is a pity that the film failed at the box office. On a budget of $80 million, it should have grossed a quarter of a billion just to break even. But the box office of the film was only $163 million.

    For those who don’t know, I will explain. Half of the box office gets theaters, 15% goes to the distribution company. Production gets 35% of the box office. To simplify things, divide the box office by three and you get the revenue of the production company.

    In the case of the film “The Interpreter,” the production office suffered a loss amounting to: $163,000,000/3= $54,300,000 - $80,000,000 = $25,700,000. Too bad!

    But it’s still a great movie!
