Slovar v postelji - The Sleeping Dictionary

Slovenski opis filma:

Leta 1936 se mladi ambiciozni Anglež John Truscott preseli v britansko kolonialno postojanko v Maleziji. Tam se sooči s tradicionalnimi običaji plemena Iban in prelepo Selimo, ki ga uči domorodskega jezika in v katero se kmalu zaljubi. Johna budno spremljata njegov nadrejeni častnik Henry Bullard in Henryjeva žena Aggie, ki se bojita predvsem tega, da se bosta John in Selima zaljubila. Ko se to tudi zgodi, se proti mladima zaljubljencema obrnejo tako kolonialne oblasti kot domorodci.

Originalni opis filma:

John Truscott goes to Borneo to work with the Iban. He reports to Henry Bullard, who gives him a "sleeping dictionary"--one of the locals who teaches him the local language and culture. And who he gives John is Selima. And while teaching him, John finds himself attracted to her. And we says it's not allowed, both the locals and Bullard forbid him to be in a relationship with Selima. But he defies them which has dire consequences.
