Donnamarie wrote:'The Intouchables' was a wonderful movie with terrific performances by the two leading men.  Can't remember the actors' names.

I can't imagine Kevin Hart in the role of the caregiver!
There is nothing nuanced about Kevin Hart and he lacks the physicality and I think the charm of the original actor.

Why mess with the original?  In fact, the original came out only a few years ago ... 2011 or 2012 I think?

Donnamarie I like the way you think.

Donnamarie , they keep remaking these movies because the want the money. And seem to think that putting actors who are hot  right now will make the remake a hit. It is just dumb leave them alone and come up with good scripts.

Agree annemarie. There's an article in the Washington Post this morning written by one of their film critics. It speaks to what we've been talking about. I will try to post it here later.

Ladybugcngc and Annemarie, did you see 'The Intouchables'?

No, I don't recall a movie called "The Intouchables";  however the thought sounds wonderful.    A movie about people in touch with real life.

It's a French movie with subtitles. A very well done and uplifting story.

Here's an article from today's Washington Post that is relevant to what we've been talking about.

I never saw the movie but I do remember watching the  the t.v. show with Robert Stack as Elliott Ness.  if this is the same movie we are talking about.

I can't remember the year but I think it was on in reruns in the late 70's or early 80's.

Donna,
are you talking about this movie?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I saw it a few times and think it's just breathtaking!
If you ever get the chance, don't hesitate to read the book, it's even better:

I think in the States you prefer to do remakes of movies in other languages rather than synchronizing them. I don't always think that that's the better decision...

Have you ever seen 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'?
It's the 2011 remake of a Swedish movie

from 2009 which in my opinion is much better than the remake...

There is an excellent dubbed version available, but you have to really search for it.

Carolhathaway - I don't know why, but for some reason foreign films are either subtitled or remade for showing here. I don't recall any foreign film  that was synchronized, although there may have been a few. They usually don't get wide distribution, and end up in art houses where they're seen by a fairly small audience. We miss out on a lot of very good movies.

That said, I did see both versions of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", and I agree. The original was much better.

Thanks carolh for the links. I've only seen the remake of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' which I thought was pretty good. I'll have to check out the original since you and Lizzy preferred it to the remake. Some late summer movie watching ...

Way2, I'll check Amazon to see if they have the dubbed version of 'The Intouchables'. Now I want to watch again!

I'm not sure I've ever seen a "synchronized" version of a foreign film scratch

In Germany usually all foreign movies are synchronized, you can hardly see any in original languages. So I had never heard George's original voice before I bought DVDs where you can often choose between various languages. Somebody here said that in Sweden movies aren't usually synchronized but subtitled, and my husband said the same about the Netherlands. I remember one funny thing: When I was about 16, I spent four weeks with my 'British mum' in our twin town, so after a few days I started thinking and dreaming in English. One night I watched a film on TV with my host family, and it wasn't in English but subtitled. I concentrated on the story and the subtitles, until - after about 30 minutes - realized that it was a German film in German Laughing. I had shutted out German and just didn't notice that I didn't need the subtitles...

Lizzy,
yes, EVERYBODY realized it because their son asked me: "Isn't that movie in German?" and that was when I first started really listening...

Last year, when I took my family to our twin town, we visited my 'British mom' with our hosts and some others, and her son Nick was there as well and told everybody about that Embarassed
I really enjoyed that...

I really hope this time the plot actually works! Soderbergh himself said he doesn't know how the money got out of the casino in Ocean's 11. And I'm still trying to figure out, (after seeing the movie at least a dozen times!), how Danny Ocean got back in the room with Bruiser after the robbery. scratch

 All theories will be gratefully accepted.
