Lost in translation

[Italiano]

The Italian cinemagoers voted! The worst movie-title translation of a foreign movie into Italian is “Se mi lasci ti cancello” (If You Leave Me, I Delete You!). The original title is “Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind”, from the poem “Eloisa to Abelard”, written by Alexander Pope. The Italian translation not only has nothing to do with the original version but also affects the meaning and the content of the movie, so it seems to be more like an easy comedy than what it really is. The imagination or even the incompetence of the Italian movie distribution is so unlimited that we have a great variety of samples… vote the worst one!
