The Passenger (2005)
very surprised! A hidden gem.
I happened upon this Japanese/French film one evening and it kept me up too late because I really enjoyed it. The film itself, is very dramatic with lots of "grey" filters however, after a few minutes I was drawn to it, like moths to a candle. The intensity, was too much to ignore...the plot reveals surprise intensity. The relationships with the characters kept gradually developing and left me wanting to see the next scene. This film and the character relationships with one another felt real, and the emotions that tie them all together left me thinking about "art imitates life". Wonderful, a nice surprise to some other films that pop on TV this late on a Sunday evening.
See it for yourself.
Worst English Translation of Subtitles- EVER?
I can speak and understand Spanish but when I was watching this at home with my husband and my mother in law who don't speak or understand Spanish, this movie's translations are half- ass-ed. Half the time the other character's line is never revealed, and on top of it, most of the lines translated are fragments of the actual scene. I really understand why this movie can seem slow and bad to some people. I would really appreciate getting the full translation on DVD- are there any other translation options for this film? Does the director really think that these lines will take the English viewer very far? Has anybody else felt the same way while watching this movie? That the subtitles are seriously not helping the movie at all. At least when you watch Amelie or Talk to Her the subtitles seemed full of detail.
