    ★★★★

    "... ours will be a lonely battle."

    Loved the melancholy mood of this documentary and the fascinating insight into the world of translations.

    Loved how Mette Holm went to try out a pinball machine to get the feel and sounds to be able to translate Pinball, 1973.

    It was really nice to see Ursula Gräfe, Murakami's German Translator, as I had read her name in the beginning of novels for many years now but had never seen her.

    Also, this made me really appreciate the Murakami short story Super Frog Saves Tokyo.

    Rapace is good, but the film is just standard fare.

    This movie...

    The middle part is like the most wonderful Christmas movie about
    brotherly spirit where no brotherly spirit should exist. It's such a moving, hopeful film.

    The ending is so incredibly sad.

    Song Kang-Ho is so natural, one of the most talented actors of his generation.

    People who don't disable the typing sounds on their phones deserve to be haunted.
