Storyline

A sexually ambiguous Frenchman tours his native countryside with his naive American lover in pursuit of the ultimate thrill. From the moment they meet, brooding Chris and the beautiful Aurore fall instantly and passionately in love but it s not long before their intense connection is consumed by Chris s dark obsession with gay men. Before long, the pair embarks on a violent and sexual journey filled with seduction and destruction of young gay hustlers. Hard-hitting, intensely sexy and wildly controversial, American Translation is a twisted Bonnie and Clyde for a new generation. Written by Anonymous

I don't know why and for whom made this film.
1 July 2012 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

It's a disgusting movie, where are no sense and no art. It reminded me of old and good film "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" of 86 th year with Michael Rooker, where were all what you need, real story, interesting plot, charismatic and brutal main character, good acting and scaring tension. In "American Translation" there is nothing similar. On a screen I just saw the stupid and revolting lovers who doing nothing except murder and sex, they have no motivation, no reason for that, just they are bored. They are much talking about love but they didn't love each other really. They are unfeeling and blind for each other and for me such characters not interesting. I don't know why and for whom made this film.
