Help with translating a Chinese movie?

Recommended Posts

BaffoRasta

Hi everybody, I know the request I'm trying to make here will hardly be taken into account since it's some piece of a work but I'll still try. 

It's been like two-three years that I've been after a movie (trailer here) I'd like to watch but I never managed to find it on DVD anywhere on the internet except in some libraries in the USA that are too far away from me to even have the chance to think about going there and asking for it. Finally today I found a copy on a well known online DVD retailer and the only problem I have is that there are only traditional Chinese subtitles, and unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to be able to enjoy the movie nor enough time to start studying the language in depth since I'm a full-time university student. My request is: is there anybody willing to help me by translating the subtitles to english? Of course if you do I can pay back the favor by translating to english an italian movie of your choice (italian is my native language and the only one I know apart from english) of any length you wish. This could be a challenge for you to improve and test your english skills and the same for me when paying it back. I can't spend any money except on buying the DVD cause being a student I don't have any income and the reason I would do it is as an hobby, (of course I don't want to be paid to translate the movie for you).

 

Thanks in advance for you answer, whatever it is.

Am I missing something?

 

You never actually mention the name of the movie, and the link to "movie" is broken. The link to "trailer" takes us to a trailer of Coffin in the Mountains on Youtube. But the full version of Coffin in the Mountains is also available on Youtube, with Chinese/English subtitles:

Perhaps you are really looking for a different movie?

Wow thank you, I was talking exactly about that movie! Never  thought about looking for it on YouTube!

@BaffoRasta, thanks for bringing up this movie. I enjoyed watching it - a nice antidote for all the fluff of Christmas shows. 

 

A very good piece of black humour, original and clever, and very Chinese (I think Chinese cinema excels when not trying to mimic Hollywood). Maybe a bit too clever, it's slightly hard to make heads or tails of it at first, but worth persisting.
