VENICE, Italy (AP) — Is there a language Viggo Mortensen doesn't speak?
The multilingual Danish-American actor has performed in everything from English to Elvish. Now he tackles French — as well the power of silence — in Venice Film Festival entry "Far From Men," a stark story about two men, a schoolteacher and a murderer, caught up in Algeria's war for independence.
Mortensen also learned some Arabic for the film by French director David Oelhoffen. So how many tongues has he used onscreen?
