INTERPRETER, THE (2018)
2018 Oscar® Selection, Slovakia
Octogenarian translator Ali Ungár (Jirí Menzel, CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS) is on a quest for vengeance after stumbling across the identity of the former SS officer he believes murdered his parents. Instead of finding the man who pulled the trigger, he meets Georg Graubner (Peter Simonischek, TONI ERDMANN), the officer's son. Despite a rocky start, the gregarious Georg hires Ali as his translator, and the two set out on the open road to discover what really happened to Ali's parents in this funny and poignant odd-couple dramedy.
