Movie Info

80-year-old Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia. He realizes his parents were executed by him. He sets out to take revenge but finds instead his 70-year-old son, Georg, a retired teacher. Georg who had avoided his father all his life, decides to find out more about him and offers Ali to be his interpreter. The two old men that everything opposes embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy. They discover a country eager to forget its past. They realize their memories are fragments mixed with their imagination and interpretation. They connect in silence and manage to discover their own identity.

Critic Reviews for The Interpreter (Tlmočník)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • The subtlety of the film's elegant craft, the restraint of ulk's characterful screenplay, and the superb chemistry between the two lead actors ... gives "The Interpreter" a respectful, quiet resonance.

  • A trip worth taking - except for that one twist.

  • Without looking for greatness or great epic pretexts, it ends with the same naturalness with which it begins. [Full Review in Spanish]

    October 2, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • For the most part this is a lyrical and lightly handled odd couple road movie that achieves a subtle resonance, although it is almost scuppered by a sudden major tonal shift in the film's final act.

    April 4, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the teaming of Peter Simonischek and Jiř Menzel as the unlikely travelling companions, this follow up to the director's 2011 drama Gypsy disappoints.
