One of my favourites,
This review is from: The Interpreter [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a great action-packed thriller which keeps your brain-cells ticking and keeps you on the edge-of your seat; it is more intellectual compared with others in some ways. I recommend it. Great taste and flavour of the UN as well---giving an overall picture of what such a great institution is capable of achieving and why it exists today--words, compassion, diplomacy and justice will forever dominate over sheer brute force and violence.
I may be spoiling the film if you haven't seen it to some extent but it has some of the most beautiful and lyrically poetic lines ever----close to the end of the film:
'The gunfire around us makes it hard to hear.
But the human voice is different from other sounds.
It can be heard over noises that bury everything else.
Even when it's not shouting.
Even if it's just a whisper.
Even the lowest whisper can be heard over armies....
When it's telling the truth...'
The above is an extract from a fictional book written by one of the film's main characters: Dr.Edmond Zuwani.
The above lines alone for me is what makes this film worthy of 5 stars.(whoever they may have been written by)
I encourage you to watch the film to understand its context and greater meaning....Not many thrillers can truly move you and prompt you to understand humaneness and humanity.
