マネー・ショート / The Big Short

"トレーダーの視点で描く、リーマンショックの舞台裏。"
冒頭から難解な金融用語が続出しますが、解説が入るので略語の理解さえあれば、完走できます。その解説も、話しの流れを断ち切りながら演出でつなぐという斬新な手法。トレーダーたちが金儲けに走るような話でもありますが、リーマンショックの原因とそれがもたらした惨状も扱っていて、意外に深い作品です。実際に職を失った人達は、これを見て何を思うのだろう。

"The financial crisis, reviewed from sights of four traders."
Starting with a rush of difficult financial words, you could endure to watch this to the last by their explaining parts unless you get confused with some acronyms. And those explaining part are even interesting. They are separating main parts, but connected to them by funny direction. Although the main story is about the traders who got a tons of money during the crisis, this film is also focusing on the cause and the results of the crisis, and depending on that, this one becomes not only interesting but also sociable. What would the victims of the crisis think when they see this film.
