Les rivières pourpres (2000)
Beautiful, but the dubbing!
This film looked great, had an interesting plot, great suspense....BUT dubbing a film should be a crime. The voice is one of the most important features of the art of acting. You might just as well dub the Metropolitan Opera into English, or fix the smile on the Mona Lisa. In the ideal situation, film is ART as well as entertainment, and seeing as this movie obviously has great artistic value, dubbing the voices betrayed everyone involved.
Why take a classic of children's literature and change the story?
Ron Howard's version of The Grinch turned a wonderful children's book about love overcoming greed into an outsider revenge story complete with an alternate bad guy. Apparently the original plot violates the Hollywood code by allowing the bad guy to get away without being punished. Why not make a new version of "A Christmas Carol" and create a new character to take the fall at the end? Scrooge's silent, more evil partner perhaps.
