Great film, rubbish translation.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cup (1999) Wonderful Tibetan Comedy (Eng Subs) DVD (DVD)
I originally saw this with subtitles in the 1990s in the cinema and loved it so was really pleased to find it on DVD. Unfortunately, the copy I got seems to have been translated into English from the Thai subtitles. We had a good laugh re translating the subtitles but it took away from the brilliance and simplicity of the film. At the end, English appears on screen as part of the film and it's translated again very very badly. (Hence, my deductions it's from the Thai translation!) I'd try to find a different copy but I don't know how you'd know it was better. Great film though. Really great.
