Ridicully - verbal voyeur extraordinaire

  • Mood:

I are very smart!

After reading oscar night reports for the last week, my brain just now decided to make the connection of 'foreign language film' and 'The Lives Of Others sounds and awful lot like Das Leben der Anderen, I wonder how they avoided problems with that.' Of course it didn't help that I did not even know it was nominated and have a knack of avoiding newspapers, but still, how could I miss that? After all I immediately recognized that that 'El labyrinto del fauno thing my flatmate keeps mentioning as Pan's labyrinth even though I haven't seen that one either.
Apparently my brain no longer translates English titles automatically. I wonder if that's a good thing or a sign of disintegrating language skills.
