Books from boxes

Sometimes,while watching a foreign movie with English subtitle (or reading a translated book),
 i wonder- What if the translations are the complete opposite of what the characters are actually saying?

Maximo Park - Books from Boxes


  1. This photo in fact reminds me of a still from a movie.
    And I'm asking myself the same question every time!

    1. I was watching a French film and I seriously doubted its translation:-)

  2. A beautiful still from a film :)
    That happens in Portugal with the portuguese subtitles sometimes being completely absurd and i feel grateful that i understand english and french and don't have to 'buy' the bad translator's version of it :O

  3. I always wonder how much meaning is lost in a translated text!
