I have begun my “Not Going to Theater While Coughing” streaming service watch today on Netflix with a film called Twin Murders: The Silence of the White City. The summary on Netflix made me believe that this would be an interesting film.
A criminal profiler (Javier Ray) returns to Vitoria-Gasteiz at the same time that a serial killer, thought to be in jail and being prepared to be released, has begun leaving corpses killed using bees.
I lost interest in this fairly quickly. The story was not intriguing as I had hoped it would be and was predictable and uninteresting.
The biggest problem with the movie is that it is actually a Spanish language film, but this version is dubbed in English. Because of that, the actors on screen do not match with the words they are saying and the voice over acting is hardly as emotional or human as it should be. The voices lack the impact of the real voices. I would rather had heard the real voices in Spanish and read the subtitles than hearing this half-hearted English translation. It is nearly impossible to grasp the real performances these actors give because of it.
I hope the next one is a better film.
