Around Forty 40 DVD English Subtitle
by Hideo Cota Date Added: Thursday 12 May, 2011
Around 40, a love drama about 3 women and their respective love lives. The three met in University, and have maintained their close friendship throughout the years. Amami Yuki plays the lead, as a highly respected psychiatrist and the chief of the mental health department at a large hospital, she appears calm and in control, but she’s approaching her 40th birthday and inwardly she is desperate to get married. The second woman, Matsushita Yuki is an unhappy housewife. She married right after graduation and has never had a career outside the household. Lately, she feels unappreciated, and resents both her emotionally distant husband and their spoiled son. Lastly there is Otsuka Nene the youngest of the three. She is an ambitious career woman working for a magazine publisher. In order to advance her career, she marries a celebrity trendsetter.
The English captioning was, for the most part, awful. Maybe 20-25% of the time it was accurate, but the rest of the time, it was just flat out wrong. For example, the spoken dialogue was, "What are you going to do about this?", and the caption was, "Why did you come?"
Another example: dialogue was, "Thanks to your efforts, he has returned to the photography world." The caption was, "Thanks to you, he'll never pick up his camera again."
Since the captions were totally contrary to the plotline, it was impossible to follow the story. I had to constantly stop the play to explain to my wife what was actually being spoken.
Although it was a satisfying story, with sympathetic characters, if you have to rely on the English captions, you'll be disappointed.
