Movie Info

After spending part of her childhood in Japan, Amelie (Sylvie Testud) goes back after graduating from college to work as an interpreter at a corporation. The male executives treat her poorly, but she has a good relationship with Fubuki (Kaori Tsuji), her immediate supervisor. Unfortunately, Amelie sets herself up for a fall when she shows that despite being from Europe, she is adept at the Japanese language. Viewed as lacking in proper humility, her co-workers conspire to put her in her place.

Audience Reviews for Fear and Trembling (Stupeur et tremblements)

  • Dec 28, 2007
    A funny if unoriginal look at cultural divides. Sometimes the morals are hammered home too blatantly but overall a warm feeling of genuine likeability eminates from the film. Brilliant performances and some wonderfully scripted scenes make this a fine film, even if the containment within the office place hinders the film in terms of characterisation.
