Jewish Film Festival: The Interpreter

Monday, November 11, 2019

4:00pm - 6:15pm

Slovakia’s official entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, THE INTERPRETER is a bittersweet, tragicomic road trip of remembrance, trauma, and guilt filmed against the astoundingly beautiful backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains. When elderly Ali (master Czech director Jirí Menzel, Closely Watched Trains) shows up at a doorstep in Austria with a gun in hand, he expects to assassinate the man responsible for his parents’ execution. Instead, he finds the man’s womanizing son, Georg (Peter Simonischek, Toni Erdmann), a 70-year-old former teacher who offers to pay Ali to accompany him on a journey through Slovakia and serve as his translator. Seeking to come to terms with his father’s dark past, Georg tasks Ali with translating the documents contained within his father’s journals and investigating the inscriptions written on the back of aged photographs. The odd couple sets out on a journey to the past through the countryside of Slovakia to unearth their intertwined stories.

Slovakia/Czech Republic/Austria, 2018, 113 min, Directed by Martin Sulik, Not Rated, In German, Slovak and Russian with English subtitles
