One of the most popular audience films at the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival this year,  The Translators, is a classic crime ‘whodunnit’ which has had a resurgence of late, thanks to the likes of Rian Johnson’s Knives Out and Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express. But the genre has never been out of favour in France, where well-crafted mysteries in the Agatha Christie vein have proven popular for decades, and The Translators is an ingenious new entry to the canon.

In the tradition of Knives Out, comes an ingenious literary mystery that will keep you guessing until the final frames...

The eagerly awaited final book of a best-selling Dragon Tattooesque French trilogy is about to be globally released, and nine international language experts have been hired to translate it into their native tongues. With the stakes so high, the supercilious publisher (Lambert Wilson) has them on lock-down – confined together without any contact to the outside world – in a luxurious bunker, until the task is completed.

So when the first ten pages of the top-secret manuscript inexplicably leak online with a ransom threat, it’s evident that the thief could only be among them. Their increasingly paranoid and desperate captor is ready to do whatever it takes to unmask him… or her… or them.

Superbly acted by a terrific international cast, this suspenseful and wickedly entertaining tale – screening at the Festival simultaneously with its French theatrical release – will keep you riveted until the final scene. The clues are all there if you can spot them...

(French, English, Spanish, Mandarin, Italian, German, Danish with English subtitles)

 "A cleverly concocted crowd-pleaser!. A high stakes whodunnit where the usual suspects are not your typical culprits." -  The Hollywood Reporter

It’s delicious this film, it’s funny, and so intricately and ingeniously plotted. It’s clever and very enjoyable.
