Transcript of Everything Is Illuminated

Everything Is Illuminated is a 2005 adventure/dramedy film, written and directed by Liev Schreiber and starring Elijah Wood. It was adapted from the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer.
PRODUCTION
The film was released by Warner Independent Pictures studio in September 16, 2005.
The film was dubbed, but not absolutely: original speech of actors was remained.
PLOT
Jonathan Foer, a young American Jewish man, goes on a quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather during the Holocaust in a small Ukrainian town called Trachimbrod that was wiped off the map when the Nazis liquidated Eastern European shtetls. His guides are a cranky, anti-semitic grandfather; his deranged Border collie named Sammy Davis Jr. Jr.; and his over-enthusiastic grandson, Alex, whose fractured command of English, passion for American pop culture, and constant chatter threaten to make the worst of every situation. But what starts out as the tour from hell turns into a meaningful journey, with an unexpected series of revelations that will change all of their lives.

MY IMPRESSION
It is very unusual film, I have never seen such film before. It left a deep & lasting impression on me. On the one hand it’s easy to see & there are a lot of comedy scienes, but on the other hand it’s full of serious content.
Dialogue seems real & actors speaks effectively.
