whispered lines in films/dramas
Hopefully not a repeat rant,i did do a search first.
Just finished first series of Hard Sun on bbc which i really enjoyed....but so often the actors whispered their lines or spoke so quietly i had trouble making out what they said. I'm sure even the person they were speaking to had trouble hearing what they said....and then did exactly the same!
Is this done to seem more dramatic? Why can't they just speak at a normal level? Alot of good bits of dialogue ruined by speaking at a barely audible level. This seems to happen so often in films and tv dramas now.
I'd rather not resort to subtitles but may have to.
