One month ago our agency started working on a big and exciting project — a translation of six full movie scripts from Spanish. You can always tell a Spanish movie from any other by its particular weirdness, marked by several specific features. They run like a common thread through various scripts of road movies, sitcoms and TV-shows, translated to Russian by our specialists.
According to Wikipedia, "Spanish cinema has not achieved high marks worldwide." There is a belief that if this trend persists, an actual crisis of Spanish cinema can break out. However, after receiving the Spanish scripts from our client, we would like to declare that in times of global monopolization in the movie industry, the Cinema of Spain has yet a strong chance to survive.
First thing that catches the eye is the huge variety of genres of potential films. Here you can find a road movie about three forty-year-old friend women who decided to go off on a journey; there is also a sitcom (situation comedy) about magical transmigration of souls from one body to another as well as multi-episode TV-shows, mostly romantic comedies or dramedies. Unique Spanish sense of humor (as well as the special secret mystery horror, which is typical for Spanish literature and cinema), plenty of love scenes, adventures and intrigues, as if they came from the pages of Sigmund Freud’s writings — all those features are the pillars of the scripts, that were professionally and artistically translated by a special group of our Spanish translators.
Today, when you hear about Spanish cinema, you probably recall such titles as “An Andalusian dog” by Luis Buñuel or something more actual like “The sea inside” (Mar adentro, 2004), “Unconscious” (Inconscientes, 2004), “Pan’s labyrinth” (El laberinto del fauno, 2006), or “The skin I live in” (La piel que habito, 2011). Well, in the near future you will have a chance to watch some more Spanish movies, because (we can assure you) Spanish scripts are being written and translated in search for investors and producers all over the world.
