4.0 out of 5 stars For once, something actually happens at the UN Jan. 16 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Only liberal Hollywood would cast Sean Penn as - of all things - a Secret Service agent and fulfill his egomaniacal dream of actually standing at the podium of the UN General Assembly. But I'm going to try and rein in my feelings for Sean Penn and the UN here - although it will take a great show of will for me to pull that off. Suffice it to say, I had sworn a solemn oath to never, ever watch a Sean Penn movie - and then Nicole Kidman, one of my personal favorites, goes and makes a movie with the guy. Thus, this was an unusual film for me to sit through - and, as much as I dislike Sean Penn for a myriad of reasons (not just political - the guy did marry Madonna back when I had a teenager's crush on her, after all), he delivers a darn good performance in this movie - he was even better than Nicole. Were it not for the fact that I have an issue with the ending and the matter of a few plot weaknesses along the way, I might have considered giving The Interpreter 5 stars.

It's hard to judge Nicole's performance because I'm not sure if I was supposed to truly like her character. Silvia Broome (and how ironic is it that Nicole plays a witch and a character named Broome in the same year?) is fairly remote, mysterious, and secretive, and I never really warmed up to her. This is the first time I've ever not liked or loved a Nicole Kidman character - I even loved her in To Die For, and she wasn't exactly Miss Sweetness in that one. Here, she plays a UN interpreter who just so happens to overhear a whispered conversation (in a language only she and a handful of other people understand) pointing to an assassination attempt against President Zuwanie of the (nonexistent) African nation of Matoba.

Sidney Pollack's The interpreter is a well made film.i wasn't expecting
much,so this was a pleasant surprise.the movie stars Nicole Kidman as
U.N interpreter who overhears a murder plot and Sean Penn Plays a
secret service agent assigned to protect her.Normally i don't like
Nicole Kidman,however she showed she has some real range in this
picture.Sean Penn is terrific in an understated performance.the film is
well directed,with plenty of suspense,intense action sequences and some
good plot twists.the dramatic moments are also handled well by
Pollack.Pollack has directed several films in his career,such as
Tootsie,out of Africa and the Firm,as well as Random Hearts and
Sabrina.The people responsible for the writing must also be given
credit as well for a superb effort.Overall, a very well done effective
suspense thriller. 4.5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful thriller,one of Pollacks best Sept. 25 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
The Interpreter(released Apr/05)stars Nicole Kidman as the titled interpreter Silvia Broome,Sean Penn as secret service agent Tobin Kellar,along with a nice supporting cast.The film pulls you in from the start and Pollack is on game,revealing plot elements like pieces in a puzzle;with a very pleasing but different end result.
The film opens in Matobo,a fictional African country,full of strife and internal violence,run by its dictator Edmond Zuwanie(Earl Cameron).Three people drive up to an old stadium,in disrepair, for a rendezvous;one is a black interpreter,one is Kidman's brother Simon and one is a friend of Simon and Kidman's,Phillippe,a photgrapher,who arranged the meeting.Phillippe stays behind in the vehicle as the other two enter the stadium.They find three young boys playing soccer and one of them leads the two men under the stadium to view several dead bodies,from a recent massacre.After a few moments the boy yells to the men that someone is coming.As they rush out they are confronted with the boys who now are armed.The two men are shot dead.Phillippe hears the shots,as one of Zuwanie's men drive up.Phillippe hides,then flees the country.
Back in the States we start to follow the life of interpreter Kidman,who works at the UN.One day an evacuation is called in the building,and all personnel leave.Kidman,who forgot her satchel,returns to her office to retrieve it and hears some chatter on her headphones.It is a conversation about the killing of the teacher(Zuwanie),who is coming to speak at the UN.As she listens the lights in her room come on and she frantically switches them off,but the voices appear to know she is there and she flees.The next day she reports what she heard and secret service man Penn and company show up.
