I heard the reviews were not glaring. Are there scenes with Nicole Kidman interpreting? I had high hopes, with Penn being in the movie. Â I don't care much for Nicole Kidman. I only saw one movie with Julie Delpy, and it was OK. Â I recently saw an interesting interview with her done on French TV. Â Basically, a taxi driver picks her up at the airport and does all the interviewing when he realizes who she is. Â Very fresh and natural. Â And she glows with beauty, intelligence and warmth.
OK. Â I thought Delpy was your avatar. Â I haven't seen that one -- I'll check it. I don't care for Kidman. Â Yes there are some scenes where she is doing direct interpretation between two parties. Â There are also scenes of the UN in general doing their bit -- and the the interpreters doing theirs. In some ways, the gov't figure from Africa is a composite of Mugawbe and a few other lunatics. There are some interesting plot twists and a few good monologues and I think some nuance in the African political bits.
