The Translators. Plot
Nine translators, hired to translate the eagerly awaited final book of a bestselling trilogy, are confined in a luxurious bunker. When the first ten pages of the top-secret manuscript appear online, the dream job becomes a nightmare – the thief is one of them and the publisher is ready to do whatever it takes to unmask him – or her.

“The premise is admittedly an unusual one, but it doesn’t exactly thrill (…) No doubt the concept seemed like a good idea in the script conferences but when put on the screen, something, er, got lost in translation.” Julian Wood: FilmInk
“Every few weeks, we have a film that sounds great on paper but can’t quite deliver on its lofty ambitions. ‘The Translators’ is the latest example – a watchable movie that comes with a few flaws.” Matthew Toomey: The Film Pie
Pure entertainment. A great plot, a thrilling mystery. Elegant, sophisticated.
